Author Topic: Collective Teachings on Clockwork  (Read 2108 times)

I was wondering if anyone would be interested in providing general How To knowledge of clockwork. preferably starting with the basics of things like what different components do (springs, gears, ect.) and how one might incorporate said component into a clockwork project. eventually working our way up to full projects like "how to make a [elaborate clockwork device]"

some of the things people (including myself) might find helpful in this topic are:
fundamentals and tips of basic clockwork (like components and how to use them)
how gear ratios work
really any other tutorial like things you can provide on the subject.

thank you in advance for any shared knowledge

I would love to see something like this.  I'm a much better learner if someone teaches me than if I'm trying to piece information together myself.

I too would have some interest in this. I have an engineer hidden deep within me, reaching out.

Cheers.

Its a large subject, but I think I could put together something based on the common pocketwatch, and how it works as a machine...

Harold, my good man, that would be spectacular! I had a feeling if you where to see this topic you would be an ace contributor Grin
I do realize the scale of this subject, but Imagine what could be learned if we could all pitch in a little. Imagine the projects we could see if everyone knew a little more about clockwork Smiley I'm attempting to teach myself a little bit to share with the group as well.
