Hmm, OK, lets clear up the terminolo
gy so we can understan
d. An Escapemen
t, is comprised of a DeadBeat gear, and a pawl system. The pawl shaft is what the pendulum hangs from. Many way to hang them. The DeadBeat gear, ( that gear with all the pins ) is usually
tight on its arbor, and shares that arbor with another gear and perhaps a second hand. That arbor is usually on bearings in the casing or front/back plates. But the geaqr itself is simply tightly fit to the arbor, as is the spur or cycloidic gear that runs into the rest of the gear train.
For me, I use several small disks of plastic tightly pressed on the arbor and glued to the deadbeat, also pressed onto the arbor, this gives me lots of frictiona
l surface area to hold things tight. ( see Clockmaki
ng video #2 for details on how I do it.).
With wooded gears, the same can be done to make sure the deadbeat doesnt spin on its shaft. That usuallly isnt an issue as the deadbeat has very very little torque on it, the high torque is further down a clocks chain. If your just building an art jig to show an escapemen
t working, then it shouldnt take much weight to run it.. not much torque. My clock runs with just the weight of a fnger resting on a deadbeat tooth for example.. The disks I use have a secondary purpose, they make the gear set straight on the shaft by forcing the trueness of the gear to the average trueness of the disks, this removes the bevel a laser cutter makes in a hole..
The pendulum weight has to be enough that that the pendulum swings to the bottom when moved slihly one way and released. That means it only has to overcome friction of the hanging method. I use 3 , 1 dollar coins on mine as a weigth for example..
as in the video.
Good luck, show us pictures.
