A self-contained, hands-on training system which introduces the student to basic mechanical transmission components and concepts. The device and its associated curriculum allow for training relating to basic mechanical components, applications and physical properties. Twenty-seven individual learning activities are provided.

All components are housed in a durable polyethylene storage case with removable component mounting panels. Components mount using thumbscrews, eliminating the need for special tools. Over 40 mechanical components are provided.

This comprehensive system allows for 25 to 30 hours of self-paced or instructor-led training relating to mechanical systems.
Polyethylene, impact-resistant storage case with lock.
Forty mechanical components, including levers, pulleys, gears, cams, linkages, chains and sprockets.
Steel-reinforced experiment panel, with track assembly allowing for mounting of all components.
Component mounting panel, with component mounting brackets and silk-screened component silhouettes/nomenclature.
Provision for removing individual panels from case for tabletop use.
Packaging for shipment via parcel service or motor freight.
