Fred G. Martin1 March 15, 1995

The article begins with an analysis o' th' structural principles o' th' LEGO system, continues with a discussion o' gears, gear reduction, an' geartrains, an' finishes with a visual assortment o' vari'us buildin' tricks or “cliche ́s.” Interspersed throughout be numerous diagrams an' sample models t' illustrate th' ideas bein' presented. I hope that LEGO aficionados at all levels from novice t' expert will find somethin' o' interest here.
