Almost there

August 19th, 2019

Closing in on the finish line of “Perpetual No.1”. There are still a few smaller gears, as well as the weight and the pendulum, which need to be sculpted. The bulk of the work is done though.

This was my first perpetual-calendar mechanism and I really wanted to take my time and get it right. Lots of parts were re-cut, sometimes over a dozen times, until both the design and function were perfect. It’s been quite a project, and it’s shaping up to be well worth all of the work.

More soon.
