In response to your first question:Tier 2, but that is still not good.Yeah isn't that automatic tier 4? But what if it only goes back a few meters?
It just has to back up a noticable amount to be Tier 1.
Oh, I'm using the 2-mousetrap powering with fancy winding, so you have two bars each 30 cm, so I guess it makes sense if I have one that's 60.What kind of design are you using?
If you have 2 mousetraps in opposing directions, then the bar only has to be 30cm to travel 7m in each direction.
wouldn't that still be loose even with a straw? how does that get me a consistent wind every time?I put this little circular thing in on the base in front of the axle so that it would wind straight. You could use a piece of a straw but the string would probably cut through it.
use thinner axlesI'm using CD's as wheels, but when I did my calculations, I got the result that my bar would need to be around 60 cm long to travel all 14ish meters. Am I doing something wrong, or do I actually need that long of a bar?
