Automaton

Automaton

Mechanical Wood Sculptures. Automata (or sometimes ‘automatons’) is the plural form of automaton. Contemporary automata are a type of kinetic sculputure. The finished product is a hand-cranked device that employs a mechanism to animate a scene. They are the sophisticated cousins of mechanical toys and whirligigs, and the precursor to robots.

I love to experiment with new styles and materials and to find new ways of creating movement. I never aim my work at a particular age group, and it makes me happy that both children and adults enjoy my work. I am always happy to accept new commissions both large and small.

The Boy Mechanic

The Boy Mechanic

If there was ever a perfect example of American mechanical ingenuity, it’s the Device That Frightens Flies At Screen Door. A spring, a curtain rod, a length of scalloped, 8-oz. cotton duck, and a cord combine to form an inconspicuous little device that flaps when the screen door opens, keeping flies from swarming the kitchen. Simple, inexpensive, yet brilliant — these are the qualities that make each of the over 200 vintage projects in The Boy Mechanic so enjoyable to read, let alone create. Culled from a half-century of Popular Mechanics issues (make that the first half of last century), The Boy Mechanic represents an age when imagination could conquer far more than the checkbook — when solving a problem was more satisfying than paying to have it go away. We can all learn something from The Boy Mechanic, even if it’s nothing more than how to construct A Simple Device for Suspending Parcels from Overhead Hooks. —Benjamin Chertoff

3D Printer

3D printing is a form of additive manufacturing technology where a three dimensional object is created by laying down successive layers of material. 3D printers are generally faster, more affordable and easier to use than other additive manufacturing technologies. 3D printers offer product developers the ability to print parts and assemblies made of several materials with different mechanical and physical properties in a single build process. Advanced 3D printing technologies yield models that can serve as product prototypes.
