weight gear /shaft?
« on: May 03, 2010, 04:31:03 PM »
I am thinking of a new clock  design kind of tower type for table. question can I use a seperate shaft to mount weight pully on with high gear ratio for a 24 hour run time with only 2' of travel for weight  would like to put weight on larger wheel  driving  a small gear. is this possible  ?

Hi Ty, you could place an extra wheel/pinion between the great wheel and centre wheel, thats how they make long running clocks but you would need a heavier weight, cheers Dave
