Another Antikythera post

We’ve had a couple of posts about the Antikythera mechanism before but here’s a nice write-up and collection of videos on recreating one. Makes me wonder about whether it might be doable in acrylic :slight_smile:

Clickspring is the gold standard, nay platinum standard for YouTube channels. He is trickling out these videos. Makes me think I need to Patreon him to keep feeding the hunger.

I don’t know what his day job is, but what I can this isn’t it. Yet his attention to detail, and quality of his work(and videos!) Is beyond reproach. He is a joy to watch. Also dangerous, because now I want a metal lathe and a mill…

He’s got some great ones. Check out the clock one he did. Just amazing work. Clickspring rocks! But you’ll lose more than an hour if you start looking at his stuff :smile:
