Ever since I got my I have wanted to try to make my own mechanical clock.
After just a little research, I realized how difficult that is to do and to tune it to get it right. So, I tossed the idea on the backlog and moved on to other ideas…
Now that I have more experience with my and what it CAN do, I am thinking about trying this. I know that my clock might not hold great time, or might need to be winding every day (or multiple times a day…) but I think it would look cool – even if it didn’t necessarily “work” like a real mechanical clock.
Has anyone else attempted this with their ? I searched the forum, and found a lot of talk about clock faces, but not a single entry about working mechanical clocks. Some mechanical motion devices, but nothing that actually attempted to keep time. (I assume this is because of the complexity of the subject.)
If I do attempt this, I know the chances of it working are very slim because this is a very difficult and precise task. But, think it would make for an interesting art piece (even if it doesn’t work).
Edit: Progress is being made! (Join the conversation!)
Edit: Working clock, successful! Can I get it to run longer now?
