I love gears. I have no idea what these do, I assume they step down the motor speed or something. But it doesn't matter, gears are cool. It has that steampunk feel, with it being industrial, dark, and well, geary. This is a machine shop from the early 1900's, belt driven lathes. As old as they may be, I have most of those tools on that table.
