A new clock is on the way! The planetary Clock

I love gears. There are so many combinations and possibilities that allows millions of combinations.

This time I developed a clock wheel train based only on epicyclic  gears.

I will use three sets of planetary gears connected in series as a sandwich. the input must be oration of one turn per second.

The clock will have the three hands: Hours, Minutes and Seconds.

For diving this clock I will use a timer synchronous motor. I have to options one that makes one turn per minute and one that makes 60 turns per minutes. I have not yet made any decision.

I already finished the 3D CAD model of the clock without the driving device and I think that this clock looks great!

This will not be a small clock! the diameter of the rings is 7.5”

A new challenging project with a lot of work in my garage

  1. Did you ever finish your clock? I have made a very similar one using laser cut acrylic.
