2). The most detailed is a rack-and-pinion control mechanism (Fig. 20). In the center of CA, f. 296 v-a [812 r] directly above the main plan view, is a rack-and-pinion mechanism with the pinion axle terminating in a crank (Fig. 21). A rack is a toothed bar usually made of brass or steel. A pinion is a simple spur (toothed) gear. In this case, the teeth of the pinion mesh with those of the rack. This, I believe, is the pinion mounted in the left return spring shown in the bottom left hand corner of the folio.

8 cm). I base these dimensions on several measurements taken from the Codex Atlanticus drawings, which I believe are full-size preliminary fabrication drawings,16 not scaled drawings. In other words, in Leonardo’s time, standardized measurements small enough for mechanisms did not exist. Producing full-sized drawings provided a simple, accurate and direct guide for the craftsman who would build the mechanism. The craftsman would transfer the design directly form the drawings to the workpiece. If we assume that the dimensions of the automaton are full-size, we discover that they provide a perfect stage on which to mount a figure such as a life-sized lion seated in an upright posture, but would seem small for a lion walking on all fours, as would have been necessary for the revelation of the flowers at Francis I’s entry into Lyons in 1515.

The typical fusee has a spiral groove wrapped with a chain or gut cord which is driven by the spring. As the spring winds down, the chain or gut drives the increasingly larger diameter fusee, thus compensating for the loss of torque. Leonardo’s fusees are mounted on a drum, often referred to as the going barrel or tambour, in which is contained a spring. They are a unique geared design in which the fusees are mounted on the top of the barrel, which rotates and automatically compensates for the loss of torque as the spring unwinds.
