I designed the first wall clock. It made entirely of wood. It developed drawing in stages. The number of gears can be calculated with computational tools. Igeargenarator.com . mechanical pendulum wall clock.
A clock is an instrument to indicate, keep, and co-ordinate time. The word clock is derived ultimately (via Dutch, Northern French, and Medieval Latin) from the Celtic words clagan and clocca meaning “bell”. A silent instrument missing such a striking mechanism has traditionally been known as a timepiece.[1] In general usage today a “clock” refers to any device for measuring and displaying the time. Watches and other timepieces that can be carried on one’s person are often distinguished from clocks.[2]
The clock is one of the oldest human inventions, meeting the need to consistently measure intervals of time shorter than the natural units: the day, the lunar month, and the year. Devices operating on several physical processes have been used over the millennia. A sundial shows the time by displaying the position of a shadow on a flat surface. There are a range of duration timers, a well-known example being the hourglass. Water clocks, along with the sundials, are possibly the oldest time-measuring instruments. A major advance occurred in Europe around 1300 with the invention of the escapement, which allowed construction of the first mechanical clocks, which used oscillating timekeepers like balance wheels.[3][4][5][6] Spring-driven clocks appeared during the 15th century. During the 15th and 16th centuries, clockmaking flourished. The next development in accuracy occurred after 1656 with the invention of the pendulum clock. A major stimulus to improving the accuracy and reliability of clocks was the importance of precise time-keeping for navigation. The electric clock was patented in 1840. The development of electronics in the 20th century led to clocks with no clockwork parts at all

  1. I'm impressed that you used hand-held tools for this. Fantastic. I find it better than the lot of the other clocks I've seen out here on the net. Great work! You should be very proud!

    FYI: I don't want to hijack the video, but for those who are looking for a "quick" way to do ratios, if asked, I can offer a way. Maybe the owner of the video might like it. Remember I said "quick", not completely "easy" depending on your maths skills … it is a machine after all. 😀

    Again, great video – you are inspiring! Thank you!

  2. sayın abim tebrikler. ben sizden rica ediyorum, çarkların diş sayılarını paylaşır mısınız?

  3. Hi Oğuzhan. Seems I'm not the only one bitten by the clock bug! I wanted to make one myself, but wound up creating software for making clock gears 🙂

    It uses bezier splines (you might've heard of them) to make very accurate gears…
    It also generates DXF files instead of PDF files, so you can make prettier gears by using different spoke patterns (There's even a page called 'extras' where you can download DXFs of wheel spoke patterns)…
    The gears generated are stronger, because the actual undercuts are computed…
    You can change the technical data of your gears (stuff like pressure angle, profile shift) and do lots of other stuff.

    I really hope you can check it out at http://gearapp.byethost18.com and that you'll like it. You DON'T have to pay anything — it's free online software.

    I put it up on 6th March, so please don't mind a little roughness around the edges. I'm hoping you can give me pointers if you see anything that can be improved. You can get me at gearApp{at}protonmail(dot)com

    Cheers, and happy clock-making.

  4. Hermoso teabajo como puedo obtener las plantillas y planos para armarlos te puedo dejar mi correo por si se puede aser una replica lozanohurleo75@gmail.com gracias

  5. Great build! Congratulations! Enjoyed vid, design and craftsmanship. Keep on rolling! Greetings from Serbia.

  6. wow, nice work!
    how many teeth on the escape?
    also, how many teeth on your pinions??
    i noticed you're using a seconds pendulum, so that's 3600 bph.
    very curious about your going train calculations and how long it runs.
    thumbs up.
