Mechanics that make Rotating Barrels work
Posted 15 March 2015 - 10:29 AM
I'm sure there's a name for this type of mechanical system, with the two "gears" with "teeth" and sliding "tooth" that initiates the rotation, but I don't know what is it. Can someone enlighten me?
I want to make sure I'm clear on which parts of this mechanical system must be stationary, which parts must be free to rotate, which must be free to forward-backward movement in the assembly, etc.
If you can shed some light I'd really appreciate it.

The clutch is the additional part that allows you to grab the cylinder and rotate it without breaking the other mechanisms.
So far I've heard many people call it a clutch.
I think what actually makes it rotate when you pull the trigger or prime the blaster is called a cam. Specifically, a face cam. I'm not an engineer, though, so I could be way off.
