Double pendula compound grasshopper escapement

Post by John T »

Hi Art
This clock is my most recent one and demanded some new challenges for me. The designer is from Germany and the materials he called for are not easily available here is Canada. Since the plans were dfx a quite a lot of reverse engineering was called for.
Here is a photo of the end result - the build included 1/8 inch ball bearings for the pendula. (TINY)
I read everything that gets posted here and am absolutely fascinate with what you are doing. As a clock builder I’ll never likely use the code you’re working on, but I’m really interested anyway.

John:

That is excellent. Truly there is nothing better than building something your wife will let you hang
on the wall, and anyone would allow that one. I always enjoy seeing the works of art produced here,
great job.

While its true that Ticker will have no escapements at first, they are on the development schedule,
so you may get to use the code in the end for such designs. :)
