Did anyone do the Cog Puzzle in the lower badlands

Did anyone manage to get the cog puzzle in the lower badlands. This is an area off from the sea (pier) in the elf area. There is a block puzzle to open a gate (two gates); then there is a cog puzzle. If so any hints or picture of final solution. I think I know what I need to try to do but i can't seem to get the second wheel to turn (the top one is easy); I think i need to keep the gear from going all the way up but haven't found a configuration that works.

Are y ou talking about the one in the giant forge with the molten metal pouring down?

Both cogs serve a purpose. The easy one opens an alcove that gives you a place to stand safe from the moten metal, the secoind harder one opens the way forward. The idea is that as you only have a limited time between the trap cycles, you can quickly switch it to the easy cog to give you a place to stand and hide safely until it passes and then go back to trying to get the harder cog.
