Cycle unit, which is the timing control of MOLD-A-RAMA, is on the top pane. Cycle unit consists of motor; set of 4 mechanical cams (visible at left of top panel), which operate the hydraulic valves (previously described); set of cam-operated electrical switches to time the cycle.

We’ve been told not to expect to ever sleep again, that just when you think you’re going to crack, you fall in love. This may be a matter of evolutionary mechanism intended to prevent jealous fathers from acting on their unfounded fears of oedipally motivated infants.

Bakelite cams which actuate switches are keyed together, and cannot change their relation to each other. For manufacturing reasons, bakelite cams are keyed to shaft with 2 socket set- screws, but the adjustment is pre-set at factory and should not be varied.
