This is the latest revision of the wooden DIY version of my manually controlled Fucking Machine. I finally have something that I feel look as good as it performs. There are no jutting out vulnerable parts. It still has the functional “Steam Punk” look but is more streamlined and looks like it can really do the job that it can do. Please ignore extraneous seams and holes. I added and subtracted material to the current prototype instead of starting the whole thing over. Once I am certain I like the design, I will make one from scratch to see what it is like to build one from instructions and templates. There are a few parts that I will be changing to make it even prettier. I eliminated a couple of difficult to source parts, Now every part is easy to obtain other than a very few that I need to make. This is the smoothest and quietest machine I have built. It is a little deceiving, the small motor is capable of amazing speed acceleration and power. It has more of all these capabilities than much larger machines. I will be working on the templates and instructions over the next couple of weeks and then will concentrate on the the PC record playback interface.
