With 6th June fast approaching I've been reflecting on what might or might not happen.
If my own model works, then I guess the news will spread quickly and who knows how things will develop. Whether it turns out to be of any use, I don't know and I doubt anyone can possibly know, until people have built models for themselves. At least it will be a interesting curiosity if nothing else.
If my model fails then I am even less sure of the future. I have always said that designs on paper will never convince anyone and only a working model will do that, so my fondly predicted solution, because it's on paper, will probably be nothing more than a damp squib. However I think (hope?) that perhaps a few of those members of the Besslerwheel forum and those who read my blog, and others of a similar ilk, will read it and understand why I am so certain that I am right, even if I am unable to get the mechanism's proportions right. One or more among them may achieve what I failed to do, using my own insights, I hope.
I put a time limit on my research as the 6th June this year, and now that that time is nigh a part of me is regretting tying myself down to a date, but I made a promise and I shall stick to it, just in case I am theoretically right and am merely holding up progress towards a working solution to Bessler's wheel by some other more perceptive engineer.
Due to personal circumstances entirely unconnected with Bessler I will not be writing anything for two or three weeks after the 6th June. As I say, this has nothing to do with anything connected with Bessler so please wait for two or three weeks before assuming anything has befallen me, good or bad.
