wobble wobble

Click the pic to see the cnt speed reduction box do a little dance. This is a pretty short clip, but I have a much longer one running too. In all honestly this one is not rolling at room temperature. What? Liquid nitrogen is really easy to get these days. In addition to looking a little drunk, there appears to be some slippage on the large output gear. I am not sure if that is just a quirk of the animation or what, have to wait for the longer simulation to finish to find out. Also, for the long simulation I lowered the temperature even more to see what that does to the wobble. What? Liquid helium isn't exactly the rarest stuff in the universe either.
