This model has some problems (read also my comment on [http://www.flickr.com/photos/aldoaldoz/568380974/ Flickr]): its movement is not perfect, and it's not easy to make it run fast. All I show in the my movies is authentic, but sometimes the movies have been edited after a long series of attempts.

#* The gears are the most critical items. The tooth spheres (see label ''2'' in figure below) must be North (N). The intermediate spheres ( see label ''1'' in figure below) must be a weak North as well, otherwise the interaction between two near gears is even more problematic.

#* The spheres of the central column (that are the same height as the gears) must be perfectly neutral: this is the reason why this column is hollow (no six-rods star with a central sphere). As a result the column is a little bit weaker, but it also doesn't attract any of the gear teeth.[[Image:Dyn Gears Head UpsideDown Complete.jpg|none|thumb|392px|Top part, upside down]]
