Pre-pulsar shuttle 29 is a period 29 shuttle oscillator discovered by David Buckingham on August 2, 1980. In terms of its 54 cells it is the smallest known oscillator of that period. The oscillator works by combining the period 15, two-tub pre-pulsar shuttle mechanism used in Eureka with a period 14 pre-pulsar shuttle mechanism. Hassling pre-pulsars in this way is currently the only known way of constructing period 29 oscillators, and some variations of this shuttle are shown below.
Generation 4 reveals two pre-pulsars (black) being hassled by a period 15 mechanism (green) and a period 14 mechanism (red).
