Automata! Automata! Automata! – who knew?

Here is a preview of my first. It should be quite handy. When it is done, it will be a praying machine. I mean really who doesn’t need one of those? I will take all the help I can get!

I cannot stop thinking about this thing.  I will post more as I begin to rough in the mechanism.
