How to make a mechanical snail coin bank

Designer Christopher Blasius makes small wooden machines and then shares his designs online, including plans that can be purchased. Watch as he carefully cuts, glues, drills, sands, paints, and precisely fits together a crank-operated wooden coin bank. It features a plexiglass side for easily viewing the gears and change, and a mechanical bobbing snail head that collects each coin.

In the archives: Paul Grundbacher’s wooden marble machines, a Binary Marble Adding Machine, Mekanikos vs. The Minotaur, and lots of gears.
