Many questions raised with the rediscovery of the Holloway machine and its great engineering effort.
The assumption and reasons the machine never worked have occupied the mind of many researchers and have been disputed greatly.
Based on the original patent drawings rendered by London inventor W.H.Aston, It was possible to rebuild the machines general geometry, and to get a deeper understanding of its working principles.
Crossing itself twice, this marvelous helix forms a perfect cycle and allow the machines to work in a continuous manner with just minor deviations in the machines radii. Considering the period and technological background that led to the machines invention, it serves as a reminder of the ingenuity and courage of the past and an important lesson for the future.
