With all these wheels getting done and spring discussions,
I have a great idea for a 'overbalanced' wheel using only
ONE weight. If it works, it has to be the simplest design
ever (if a VERY shaky one). Parts of it has been tested in
Working model, and it looks promising...in this design, the
'wheel' is only used as an energy sink/source, as a flywheel
giving and taking energy from the separate arm/weight/spring/gear
assembly attached to it with a belt or chain.
The weight is never moved in or out, so centrifical force
is NOT a problem at all.
Wish me luck on this one, it's way out there designwise...
