Some of my friends and I were wondering if you pre-loaded the gears in Machine With Concrete, or if it'll be millions of years before it finishes taking up the gear backlash and starts applying torque to the block.
I did not preload the gears. I just assembled the piece and let whatever backlash that was present be part of the initial conditions. My guess is that it would probably have worked fine even if I preloaded them but that would have been more work than just assembling. Yes, it will take millions to take out the backlash as you get closer to the block.... I guess that's my 'safety net'! ha ha
