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!

    For the record, there are about a bazillion "big gears" in Limbo. Next time include a screenshot perhaps?

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.
