Amazing Animated Acrobats (PDF)


4 vintage  projects in one download

This download shows how to make four projects. The two larger projects feature articulated acrobat figures that spin and flip in circles. One model is powered by steam power and the other is powered by falling sand.

The shorter projects are for stand-alone sand-powered motors that could be used to power similar acrobat figures or other light-weight objects such as cardboard. 

    These projects come from multiple original sources originally published in 1885 and 1897.

    Twelve black and white illustrations will help you along. Conveniently prints onto 8.5 by 11 inch paper.

    Prior experience with woodworking and soldering is highly recommended. 

    PLEASE NOTE: This is a digital product in PDF format. You will not receive a printed item of any form in the mail. After purchase, you will be given a download link that will allow you to print the material for yourself.
