Product Description

Reuleaux Gear Triangle is an "illegal" meshing of three gears in a triangle. All three Reuleaux gears turn in the same direction. The name of this contraption is after the Reuleaux triangle, is a curve of constant width, the simplest and best known such curve other than the circle itself. Each of the three gears has three Reuleaux triangles stacked onto each other. The constant-width property of the Reuleaux triangle ensures that the gears keep touching each other at all times.
