Close up of the hand wind mechanism in the LED Torch

The gear chain consist of four nylon gears driving a small gear directly attached to the shaft of the DC motor which is now used as a generator.

( Note: Because the wrong half of the torch was removed first, this has actually separated the final gear from the other three white gears. If properly opened, all the gears should be in place on the half where the winding handle is located )
