Title: Internal tooth escapement
Post by: Austin Hensley on February 04, 2008, 03:28:33 PM
I am running idea's through my head and think that I have a pretty elemtary design so far for an internal toothed escapewheel.  I have been looking around and haven't seen anything like it so far and was wondering if anything like that has been tried before?  Or if anyone has seen something like it and might be able to point me in the right direction.

Hello
I've been thinking about your question and remembered two sites that may have what you're looking for -- or at least be interesting to you
http://kmoddl.library.cornell.edu/model.php?m=246 
shows a three legged internal escapement. There's a little movie of it in action
Clayton Boyer has made a wooden version of the same or similar
http://www.lisaboyer.com/Claytonsite/Claytonsite1.htm
go to "other designs, no plans available"  and check out his timer

You may have a completely different idea in mind.  I'd like to learn more.
Hope this is of some help or interest
Rus

Thanks for the info Rus.  It's kind of what I am looking.  But I've also started on some ideas for an electric driven planitary gear clock too.  But I just found out that I am deploying to Iraq soon, so all of my ideas are going to have to stay as that for right now.
