Video: How does a Combination Lock work?


Jared Owen writes:

I like taking apart mechanisms to see how they work. The combination lock was so much fun to dive into. I took one to a lock smith to help me take it apart. I also looked up patents and other youtube videos to make sure that I knew how it worked. The mechanism is not as complicated as I thought! I feel like the process of 3D animating it helps me understand it even better. Enjoy the video!
