I want to know how it turns back the other way
User avatar #45 to #38 - theblindpilot (01/14/2013) [-]
look at the lower round gear. the small rod attached to it moves a larger rod which turns the fan. The farthest that small rod can move is the diameter of the gear and after that comes back in the other direction.

tldr; you're moving along a circle

If you watch the main cog as it approaches the end of the gif the fan slows down in it's directional change. Imagine a line from the centre of the fan back to the main cog as it passes this line it start's moving the fan the other way.

That would be a CV (Common Velocity) Joint that is curently used on cars nowadays to allow a drive shaft to transmit power through a variable angle, at constant rotational speed, without an appreciable increase in friction or play. They are mainly used in front wheel drive and all wheel drive cars. Rear wheel drive cars with independent rear suspension typically use CV joints at the ends of the rear axle halfshafts. KNOWLEDGE IS POWER!

I believe its called a constant velocity joint, not common
User avatar #139 to #138 - xmissvendettax (01/16/2013) [-]
Right you are sir! I am terribly sorry for the wrong wording there =]
User avatar #33 to #30 - TigerShark ONLINE (01/14/2013) [-]

Wait how does it change directions then?
#12 to #11 - eyedonteven (01/13/2013) [-]
See the gear at the bottom with a long beam attached? the beam will follow the path of the gear and when it reaches half way, it will come back.

Good job copying that. I remember there was a content where some guy on tumblr or something said that...

It was a Tweet by someone famous, I believe.

It's not a one direction fan -it's a Moa foot. They were a giant species of bird from New Zealand that died several hundred years ago.

you're clearly misunderstanding the general tone being taken towards this...
