About

The whisk was chosen as it is a device that can be mechanical already, but can be used in a different way when a new mechanism is implemented. If this project, instead of using bevel gears, with a rotary crank this product uses crank arms with a spring return system to open the arms again, which in turn rotates the whisk heads.
