Default A Couple of Interesting Design Tools...

I can see both of these being very useful when designing "projects". There have been numerous times when I could have used the linkage designer...

That linkage thing is nice. Downloaded it as a zip. Just in case I need it and the net gets more stupid.

Seen the gear one before, and really like it.

However, I can't find how to download it.
I don't have the 'net at the shop.

I have sprocketeer loaded, and have used it to burn
some sprockets on the CNC torch for the meighbors
potato digger.

I am going to be using this for my Iron worker build! I mostly have the pivot points worked out using physical models but this will help me fine tune the placement. Awesome! Thanks for posting this tool.
