Yes, had one, kinda miss it now that I think about it, had another gizmo based on a  pendulum that drew lissajous figures, forgot the name of it but it occupied me for many hours.

I got a set for Christmas maybe 72 or 73. I must have been a tad rough with it. I kept knocking the teeth off the wheels.

It didn't need a printer either.
