This is a really great site of a Dutch museum in Uthrecht.  It has videos you gotta see. http://www.museumspeelklok.nl/speelklok/movies/hi/

Thanks for sharing, but what a way to detract from a lot of potentially productive shop time!

Man!  That was quite something.  And I'm still just trying to get my 4th ordinary wooden clock together and working.  I'm trying to imagine the minds and personalities that put these kinds of things together.  Do you think they had any kind of social life or even family?  To produce something of that kind of complexity and artisanship must have required such a person to toil away, selflessly, in some darkened basement for so long a time that everyone lost track of it.

Hello all,

Finally got around to creating my links page.  I know it's not much, but least it's a start.
