Hi,

This is my first steampunk make that wasn't sewing or copying a plan.
A bracer-mounted alarm clock.
Not sure it belongs in the Chronautomata board as it's not really clockwork, apart from the lost-motion gear.



A few firsts here as I'm new to leatherwork, 3D printing, figure painting, servos and mechanics.
I'm used to 3D modelling and electronics, althouth this is the first time I've made a professional PCB for a homebrew project.

Oh...my old war wound? I got that at The Battle of Dorking. Very nasty affair that was, I can tell you.

Looks great. Makes me also wonder if it picks up the BBC World Service.

My word, excellent workmanship!  How much of that is 3d printed, and how much electrical? I'm assuming here that you're driving the quickest digits with the circuit, and each toggles the next?

Reminds me very much of the old flap clock mechanisms. Fantastic work
