The Capsela Building Set


Capsela ~1978 ~1984

Although Capsela’s Popularity lasted about six years, they can still be found and are sold new. As a kid growing up, if you loved gears, you loved Capsela. Most complicated sets consisted of capsules containing worm drives, crown gears, reduction gears, planetary gears, and motors. I lost my planetary gear capsule after twenty years, but I’ve found the rest. Everything remaining I have photographed to share in the nostalgia!
