    Tell us what you know so far. What learning resources are available to you? What have you found on the web so far? Is this for a school project? You should be doing the work, not us....

    Weights on a shaft are arranged to hinge out radially. At a certain RPM, the weights force friction bearing surfaces onto an outer ring, and engagement is made.

    Your design needs to accomplish the above.
