Mechanical ball clock

Posted on Wednesday, June 11th, 2014 in clock, DIY by DP

In this video Turnvater Janosch demonstrates his homemade mechanical ball clock:

The clock runs for 12 hours, driven by a weight of 2.5 kg sinking approx. 1 meter during that time..Every minute a marble is lifted up and goes down a marble run with three flipping traps that count marbles for minutes, five-minute-steps and hours.
The timekeeping element is a second-pendulum with a pinwheel escapement.
