I got to the Chapter of Limbo where there are the two big gears and the lever that reverses which direction they turn in. I am having a lot of trouble figuring it out from there.

Any tips?

don't forget to backtrack to get the achievement egg on the ledge right by that switch! – cdutson Jul 26 '10 at 14:10
For the record, there are about a bazillion "big gears" in Limbo. Next time include a screenshot perhaps? – GnomeSlice Sep 30 '10 at 3:08

Ah! Figured it out! It is a timing thing. The lever reverses the rotation direction of the gears, but there is a slight pause while the gears are switching directions where you can jump up on the one and then get to the other as it switches direction.
