Help for Design an Strike System for a Wooden Clock.

Dear Friends of Clockforum: 
 
Thanks for your attention and for maintain an interesting group like this on the web!!!

The object of my aid petition to the experts of the jewels of the classic watchmaking (pendulum and weights) it is the following one: I’m seeking any informative material on detailed outlines for the construction of some type of striking system for adapt to a wooden clock; it can be Counter-wheel or Rack and Snail types. 
 
Certainly, both systems are complicated for a simple amateur like me, but if somebody has the gears ratios and the disposition of the gears, I will thanks him if it could facilitate them. 
Any material will be useful: Pictures of the striking of old or modern clocks, PDF files, drawings, web pages, etc. 
 
Thanks for help me boys!!! 

Greetings, 
J.P. Reinaldo

Do a web search for George Bruno. He has several plans for wooden work clocks with either count wheel or rack and snail striking systems. His plans are worth every penny for anyone starting wooden works construction. If you have no luck getting in touch with him let me know and I will get you his phone number. Unfortunately I am not where I can get the number tonight. Reid

Go to this site.

http://www.clock-watch.de/

On the left menu, select Theory / Striking Mechan / Rack Striking Work.

A animated striking diagram should come up if you have Adobe Flash Player installed in your browser.  You can stop and start the animation for study.

A watch or clock is mainly used to measure correct timing of the day. There are many brands are available in clock which you can buy from online stores in cheaper rate. There are many antique wooden clocks are also available which you can see very less because they are very old.

I would suggest you to try latest clocks instead of old fashion ones like wooden clocks, it is important that we adapt to modern times not just for our own growth but for making children comfortable. I will suggest you to try the coolest by name and by work The Coolest Clock, it is one of the rare brands of clock which does not work just to show time but works to be a reason for motivation and happiness!
