Originally published in 1868, 507 Mechanical Movements by Henry T. Brown gave readers diagrams and descriptions of 507 small components that make up complex machinery. Transfer the rotational energy of a small motor to various gears, pulleys, and other mechanical devices to leverage mechanical advantage to accomplish a task.

Can your device lift the most weight? Is yours designed to move from point A to B?
