AUTOMATA - "Piano Playin' Ken"

Here is a "going away present" I made a few years back for my good friend Ken, who was making a career change at the time. For the most part, everything is made from wood, except for the head, which is "sculpey" modeling clay.

When you turn the crank, the cams rotate and push wires up and down to make the arms "play" the piano. Another peg makes the right tap to keep time.
