    Hey, neat! It’s me! Does anybody know what the heck that mechanism is called? The one that gathers material until the lever overcomes the weight and then it’s dumped, using the weight as a restoring force? I was looking for information about these mechanisms online, but I don’t know what they’re called.

    Man, I hate to break it to you because your gizmo is cool, but ain’t no cat on Earth gonna get near that thing once it’s seen it in operation.
