I have in my possession a nearly-functional clock mechanism. there are no springs or any other source of power besides turning the gears with my fingers. here's some pictures:

the mechanism along with all the other gears i have scrounged from clock dealers.

so what the heck should i do with it? Besides smashing it to pieces.

alright, so every one so far has pointed out that they don't envy me. but no one has addressed my question: what should i do with it?
and sorry about sounding all arrogant, i was just caught up in the enjoyment of "omg, something that actually works! instead of just a heap of loose gears i have something that works!"

Well, then, obviously you must incorporate it as the central mechanism of your Doomsday Machine.

I'd say restore it to working, and incorporate it inot a nice steamy case.. far better than "smashing"...

HAC speaks true.  Unfortunately, none of the 11 I have are anywhere near working. :-(

I have plenty to sell at $10 plus shipping.  Sorry, that may be against the rules... if it is, dear moderator, feel free to delete... if it isn't, send me a PM and I'll set you up.

Ok, sorry. Feel free to delete my post.
I'm not really trying to sell them, but I have a lot extra to get rid of if anybody wants them.  They don't work or anything.

Not admin, so I cannot, but if you really want to get rid of them, that's the place to do it. :-)
