Conical Clock Overhauled

This clock will go to the hose of a very special person for me and I need it not only to be nice but also accurate. the Conical pendulum is very inaccurate and also has some noise problems. With the changes now the clock is quiet and very accurate.


I modified the clock to be driven by a 60 RPM synchronous motor.

I added a double sided contrate wheel and two crown wheels one driven by the motor and the other to drive the pendulum




The pendulum has also a inertial wheel. I embossed 12 weights  to the wheel. I also added a new guide for the pendulum rod.


I really like how it works!
