This is the most compact clock I have designed with a short pendulum having a period
of oscillation of 1 second, that is a ½ second swing in each direction. This required
an extra set of gears in the train, to achieve the correct ratio for the escapement.
The unit is hung on the wall by a special hanging bracket that allows the clock to
be easily mounted.
The front of the clock has a door to which the dial is fitted, this can be opened
to better view the internal mechanism.
This clock requires that the case be turned on a lathe or machined in 3D, so could
be more difficult to build for those who don’t have the equipment. To help with this
I have included the 3D data in with the drawings and the DXF files.
The clock was designed in metric units but is dimensioned in both metric and imperial.
Drawings for this clock in PDF format can be downloaded here, These free files are
restricted so that you can only view them on screen but not print them. Clicking
to the right here will download the PDF file directly to your browser, may take a
few moments so be patient , if you then want to save it to your computer do so through
the file save button on the downloaded file.
