This is my attempt to duplicate what Galileo had in his head.  Since this is the first pendulum clock conceived I wanted to see how well it would run.  Answer - great

Galileo's escapemen t is a design for a clock escapemen t, invented around 1637 by Italian scientist Galileo Galilei (1564 - 1642). It was the earliest design of a pendulum clock. Since he was blind, Galileo described the device to his son, who drew a sketch of it. The son began construct ion of a prototype, but both he and Galileo died before it was completed .

This design is so robust that I was able to dress it up as a Scarecrow - take it to our farmers market - roughly level it and then have it run for the day.  People loved it!

The version I have done was all done in gearotic
