The reason for the long break over the last couple of years is that he is completing a thesis on the mechanism and its build.

Entrancing.
Just seeing all the precise hand made tools and then Chris making the pieces and explaining how they relate to stars, months, years.

That is pretty cool.
Quite the rabbit hole to go down, dude has some serious talent.

The Fire Piston is pretty cool, I'll probably get one or two.
