Tim Hunkin makes unusual and often funny old-style mechanical arcade machines for Southwold Pier, and has a couple of pages on how he makes his devices and what parts he uses. I desperately need to make a Steampunk themed one now.

    Tim Hunkin is an absolute GENIUS!

    Does anyone here from the UK remember his series, “The Secret Life of Machines?” I wish someone would release it on specialist DVD, it would be like manna from heaven for all Makers out there, especially for US members who hadn’t seen the series originally.

    Brilliant!
