Making the Fletcher Capstan Table
This particular table has been all over the internet for years, but I had never found any details on the mechanics that make it work. This video provides some details about the parts that allow all the table segments to move fluidly from the small to the large shape and back.
For the more adventurous DIY freak – pausing the video at the screenshots should give enough details to construct your own! Linear stages available in Makeblocks webstore 😉
