(Looks like something from Robert Ripley's "Believe it or not!")

This will fascinate just about all the engineers, artists, clock makers, doll makers, computer programmers, want to be inventors or basically anyone out there that likes to tinker. Enjoy. It is truly amazing. Remember this was built in the 1760's. The builder MUST have been a genius!!!

Kinda freaky at first, but really amazing. What intrigues me the most is how much detail on penmanship was put into it.

Penmanship is a lost art.

When you think about it, there haven't been many ideas that evolutionary in quite some time.

Wasn't this in the movie "Hugo"?

That would be a feat even by today's standards!

Hey elk. Have you seen the movie "Hugo"?

Kinda reminds me of that.
