    I have always had this kind of thing in the back of my mind. So glad you
    made it! I also want to simulate a slinky from left hand to right and back
    with two blocks that oscillate …

    There are no words….
    Super impressive.

    This is pretty awesome – I could imagine doing a project on some kind of
    closed-loop speed control with sensors to keep the slinky in just the right
    spot. I don’t think my advisor would approve of me spending time on that,

    I love your design…but expecting something more of run the
    escalator absolutely perpetual condition…I am suggesting a few may give a try…
    1. Put the shaft of the rotor on best/smoothest bearing available in the
    2. Attach some weight, may be a metal disc, each on the ends of the slink
    3. Adjust speed and then stop using external force when the escalator start
    running itself
    4. Change the material of the steps from wood to some lighter one, like
    plastics or adjust the weight of the metal disc to run the escalator

    Had a Slinky when I was a kid and I still love to watch them in my
    mid-70’s. I if I had had a revolving Slinky staircase back then I would
    still be sitting there gawking at that sucker mindlessly tumbling down the

    I was waiting my whole life to see this!

    Next up, add sensors and a microcontroller to control a motor instead. :D

    I admit that the build is a challenge, but what a useless machine.

    Must be real boring in Canada this time of year.

    I was thinking you “Woodgear” it down.
