Just finished a new Time Machine. Made from steel, copper, and brass and it tells time.

The case is made from individual pieces of steel welded into a box.  The end with the small CO2 cylinder opens by unscrewing the elbow. On the other side is the inside of a pressure gauge (bourdon tube).
The clock is battery operated.
The gear around the clock face comes from a tractor transmission.
The gears on the top and bottom are brass from old clocks.
Type writer keys are mounted so they move on a spring.
The feet are roller bearings.

Any questions?

Thanks!  For future reference, items in Chronautomata seem to get a fraction of the views as they do in tactile. Since we want people to see our work I suggest using the tactile section instead of the chronautomata. 

Looking forward to seeing your next piece.

When making time machines how long it takes doesn't matter since when you are done you can return yourself to the start time. Wink

Seriuosly,  it took a little while.  Since I use almost entirely recycled materials, step one is to collect the pieces.  The parts of this machine came from a variety of sources collected over a long period.

The design for the piece actually came in my sleep and is an evolution from aethermeters and other time machines I have done.

The box part of the unit is fabricated from flat steel cut out of old shelving and I probably spent the most time actually making the box.

Total time of actual construction was about nine hours, if I remember correctly.

Thanks!

Basically, you collect lots and lots of junk and by looking at the junk, see what it might be used for.

Sir,

To a Savant it is never necessary to make a time machine. Simply wait for one to turn up (they always do), then use it to go forward in time to a distant future when the duplication machine has become a reality, duplicate the time machine, and set it on automatic to return it to yourself at the correct time. Bear in mind that if you create a paradox you might cause the end of all Creation, but to a true Savant, this is at worst a minor inconvenience.
