Example text

It is often sold in 200 mm lengths. Brass is more expensive than aluminium but fortunately we do not need a lot of it. Brass is easily worked with drill and hacksaw. The thinner stocks can be bent by hand. The photo of the gripper on p. 311 shows how it can be bent to form jaws. Its distinguishing feature is that, it is reasonably rigid but has a degree of springyness that aluminium does not have. This is why it or similar alloys are used for electrical contacts, and various kinds of spring clip.

A pair of pulleys of equal diameter simply transfer force over a distance. If their diameters differ, the result is similar to that of a gear chain. A larger pulley driven by a smaller pulley rotates at a slower speed but with increased torque. Pulleys are connected by the drive band, but gears have to be in contact. This makes pulleys useful for transferring force over a distance. A further advantage of using pulleys is that drive bands are slightly elastic so the exact distance between the wheels is not important.

The speed ratios are like this: A to B 4 to 1 B to C 1 to 1 (on same shaft) C to D 4 to 1 The overall ratio of A’s speed to D’s speed is 4 × 4 = 16 to 1. m. This arrangement of gear wheels is called a gear train. The train described above needs a few more wheels to give a speed suitable for road wheels, but the principle of meshing few teeth with more teeth is the same. The simplest way to construct a train of gears is to build a gearbox from two panels of aluminium sheet or expanded PVC. The panels are bolted together, usually at their corners.
