Steampunk Mechanical Elephant
From a website:
Andrew Chase's Mechanical Elephant
This amazing mechanical design was made out of transmission parts, electrical conduits, plumbing pipes and 20-gauge cold rolled steel.
It is 36" x 36" x 18" and weighs about 85 pounds.
All the joints move and lock in place; turning a gear on the elephant's side winds a cable around a shaft which raises and lowers the trunk; the ears move back and forth and can fan out (to dissipate heat).
It took Andrew about three and a half months to build.
The elephant is going to be a part of Andrew's "timmy" book, where he joins the other characters which can be seen in the Trionic Morphatractable Engineer article.
