    I think it's to do with the pressure he's applying to the ruler. If it was set up with a load of cogs instead of friction and a rack or teeth instead of a ruler it would work as it is "expected" to. But it's getting on a bit and I'm shattered, so what do I know.

    He sounds like he should be doing voiceovers for IKEA!

    As for wy its going faster than the ruler - isnt that down to gear ratios?

    Smaller the gear the faster it goes?

    Yup, the big wheel contacts the inner core of the cotton reels, but the outer rim of the reel is in contact with the surface. Bigger circumference means it travels further/faster.
