Sorry for the delay in getting to you, Tazman--my internet connection has been down all day.
To start with, be sure to touch the journey cloth over by the buttons, so you can get back here if you don't get finished.
The most important thing is to stand on the grid until the thing rises all the way to the top! That way you will have the most time to work in.
Run it up to the top and hit the first switch on the left.
Go back and run it up to the top again, then go to the far side of the gear--there is a switch there. All you have to do is put your cursor on it and click.
Run the thing back up to the top again and then get the switch on the near side of the gear.
Run it back up to the top and hit the second button from the left. At this point the big gear should rise and start turning.
Now hit the other two buttons to turn the power on everywhere and you're finished...
