Hi Charles. I'm a writer for MAKE and I'm working on a project to post to their blog and I'd like to use this design. Of course you'll be credited out the wazoo. I'm wondering if maybe I could persuade you to cut a set of these for me. Feel free to e-mail me directly at sean@makezine.com.

Hi, Sean. I'll help you out. I just sent you an email.

What's with all the shapes on the left?

How do they fit in the project?

Oops. The other objects are there because we made mine on the same page as the people who laser cut before me. They are outside the print area, so they shouldn't matter. I don't have Corel Draw, so i can't fix it. Sorry.

I like, now i just need a reason to make. :-P

So freaking awesome! You rule!

That's gorgeous! For at least a one-iteration planetary gear set, there's
