The Brandilary - A Mechanical Brandy Warmer
Here I have the final design for the Brandilary. The purpose of this is to heat a snifter of brandy with sterno for precisely one minute. It will warm the brandy only to 95 degrees whilst rotating the snifter to prevent localizing the heating area. All of this achieved by pure mechanical means using an Edison phonograph spring motor to provide the power/
Here you can see the cover that will be incorporated into the gear chain/ Its purpose is to starve the sterno flame of oxygen at fter a precise amount of time.
Here you can see the bottom half of the shere with the three spoked bearing support for the snifter platform
The phonogragh spindle truns at 78 rpm. The correct speed for the Brandialry needs to be 1.14 RPM. Here I am cutting the gear that will communicate with the reduction gear train that needs to be designed and built
