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
