Sometimes I simply cannot sleep, this is not frequent but when it happens I need to be active. I can not stay in bed counting sheep ... When this happens I go to my garage and start working in something, I spent several nights of this week till late and the rewarding:
My Pythagoras clock is almost ready and working beautiful:
I still need some wood and electrical work:
- Design and mill a new stop lever to hide an extra weight I added, now is a piece of rod glued to the lever
- Finish retouch in some places
- Make the final circuit and hide it inside the clock base
Now I am adjusting the Arduino program to obtain the precision.
Here is a short video of the clock and some function details:
This video was taken at night with no noise and the only sound was the tick tock of the clock.
