    Absolutely magic. Watching the gear trains of the orrery makes me want head for the Meccano set. The steam engine and all the other mechanical devices, especially the little two-ball governor were entrancing. Congratulations, Jim, on a splendid find.

    I agree with Alan, a fantastic piece of engineering. One question though. The Orrery is labelled as having something to do with Jules Verne. So, the “time machine” included from the 1960 film of The Time Machine which was written by H G Wells.
