UGEARS began in 2014, with the aim of developing a unique range of modular mechanical models. They currently have 10 models on the market and are always working towards creating more. Their models have been known to unite people of all ages; wifes buy them for husbands, grandparents get them for their grandchildren, busy parents find time to build them with their children. All of the Ugears models are of the highest quality, made from sturdy materials, cut using laser technology, and don’t require glue to construct! Simple, fun, and worthwhile, UGEARS is an innovative and fun hobby for the whole family to invest in.

One of UGEARS more intricate and unique models, the Mechanical Theatre amazes guests and entertains children for hours. As the wheels spin inside the model, different character ‘pop-up’ on stage: a charming Prince, a fair King, a magical Castle, a fire breathing Dragon, a wicked Witch, a goofy Jester, a lovely Princess and a coveted Treasure Chest! Children love to use the model’s characters to make up their own stories and plays. The Mechanical Theatre is definitely a more artistic model, that could be given as a special gift to a loved one.
The UGEARS Pneumatic Engine may be small, but is definitely mighty, giving a sneak peak inside a functioning steam engine. The model Pneumatic Engine comes to life by either having the user blow into a special socket, or by using an ordinary air balloon. All the parts move as if they were inside a real steam engine, the amazing thing is – it’s built entirely out of plywood! The Pneumatic Engine comes with it’s own, built in air pressure tachometer, and two small compartments for storing ‘spare parts’.
A gorgeous, yet functional, form of storage, the UGEARS Mechanical Box can bring a little bit of character into your office or home. Opened by pushing the lever on it’s side, the Mechanical Box is perfect for holding business cards or plastic model cars. The UGEARS set comes equipped with two removable panels – one that includes a small cut-out for business cards, and one without.
Tractor from UGEARS is a rattling greeting from the past century. No electronics, just plywood, rubber band motor and tons of fun! The motor has a transmission switch that provides three options: “park”, “drive” and “sport”. The “Drive” mode will get it going slowly, covering about 5 cm per second. Switch the model to “sport” to see your Tractor speeding up ahead!
No self respecting Tractor driver should ever be seen without their trusty Trailer! Your UGEARS Tractor’s Trailer comes equipped with all the gear you’ll ever need on a farm, including a fork, a shovel, and even a small broom and bucket, which are all stashed inside the trailer. A special lever opens the side of your Trailer for quick equipment access. Naturally, your Trailer also comes complete with a hook that connects to the Tractor.
The UGEARS Combine Harvester is a truely magnificent model that demonstrates the wonder of mechanics. When it starts moving, the Combine’s reel starts spinning as well – like it would on the real thing! The Combine Harvester model comes with a secret built-in box that conceals a lever to the left of the driver’s cabin. To get your Combine harvesting, simply drag it backwards to wind up the rubber-band engine, and release. The engine can also be wound up by spinning the large back wheel. To the right side of the driver’s cabin is a handbrake lever which stops the Harvester from moving. Wind up your Harvester and release the lever for an unconventional drag race!
Timer (20 minutes)
One of UGEARS more beautiful (and functional!) models, our Timer is a top of the range model. It can be set for any duration between 1 and 20 minutes. The Timer has a working wind up alarm mechanism that will be set off when time runs out. Once built, the Timer has a unique roller pendulum and amplitude adjustment system on it’s back wall. The same as other UGEARS models, the Timer works thanks to a rubber-band motor. Redesigned and rebuilt many times in order to achieve perfection, our Timer is a classic addition to your office or living room.
Our UGEARS Dynamometer uses the same principles as the Pneumatic Engine, but has a game element incorporated into it’s design. In order to make the system come to life, all you have to do is blow on the top gear! Dependant on the amount of air pressure you add to the system, the arrow will spin and land on any of the eight pictures. Unsure of what to do at home? Let the Dynamometer decide for you! This is one of our simplest models to build, so a great set for a beginner – it demonstrates the intricacy of mechanics, putting emphasis on it’s Geneva Driver, whilst also providing a fun game once the build is done.
Our UGEARS model Safe is fully functional, with a 3 digit combination lock. A safe built by your own hand always feels safer than those that are bought. Perfect for safely storing smaller, precious items, or just for hiding personal items (such as chocolate!). A creative idea for a gift before it’s built, and a unique way to store a gift once constructed (assuming the person receiving the gift is well versed in cracking safes!). It is possible to figure out the right combination by twisting the front knob and listening carefully for the internal clicking sounds (a simple task for those that have read the basic algorithm of safecracking outlined in the instruction manual). The UGEARS Safe is guaranteed fun for everyone before, during and after it’s assembly!
460 Steam Locomotive with Tender
The UGEARS 460 Locomotive with Tender is the most extravagant model yet, it incorporates all the technical solutions from previous model designs and more! Astonishingly realistic, the Locomotive’s internal gears, pistons and wheels are as close to the real thing as possible. It looks and functions in a way almost identical to that of a steam train. Once completed, it stands out as a truly original piece of mechanics that clearly requires diligent assembly work (although it’s not our simplest model, it’s not beyond the capabilities of a beginner).
Capable of running a distance of up to 5 meters, the model’s massive gearwheel array is propelled forward by the enormous 12 band rubber-band engine. The speed at which your Locomotive travels depends on how much you wind it’s engine up. The engine is clearly visible inside the model, so you can see how steam would enter an actual Locomotive’s steam chamber. The little doors and roof hatch let you peer inside the Locomotive’s cabin, which is complete with an instrument panel and retractable ladder beneath the main door.
Tram on rails
The Tram (also know as a Tramcar or Streetcar) is one of the oldest types of urban transportation – and now you can discover how it was built by making your very own model! Inspired by the very first streetcars and funiculars, the UGEARS Tram notions to San Francisco’s oldest cable car which was put on the rails in 1873 (and is still running today!). A more romantic model that could carry a love message to someone sitting opposite you, it also comes jam-packed with retro flair.
As in other UGEARS models, the Tram is propelled by a rubber-band engine along a flat surface (tram mode). It can also be driven downhill by the pull of gravity in funicular mode, assuming one end of the rails is tilted higher than the other. Our Tram also comes equipped with a multitude of functioning levers. One on each end of the rails, can elevate them to make it appear as though the Tram is running over a bridge. Another engages the Tram’s pantograph function that pushes out the rubber-band’s wind-up wheel. There is also of course a start lever, a direction shifter, and a brake, as well as an emergency exit on the roof. There’s also a little storage space for you to put a small delivery for the person waiting at the other end of the tracks.
