    Any idea of what this mechanism is? Stored inside an old suitcase.

    Suitcase opens up, has a hole at the bottom and is essentially a carry case.

    Here's some beautiful hand drawn schematics I get to work with!

    I know they aren't quite machinist grade drawings but some of them are gorgeous and I feel like Ironman. They are enormous.
