General Discussion / Re: Antikythera Mechanism
« Last post by Mechanism Man on July 29, 2015, 06:12:44 AM »
Sorry for the almost total lack of progress on this in recent weeks, other projects and life keep getting in the way...
in the mean time I have also taken on building a nine planet wooden orrery containing 49 gears - to be finished by September 21st... No pressure there then! Still not a clock I'm afraid, but it does keep time in a way I guess, so hopefully it's not too far off the beaten track.
So I shall change the direction of the thread for a few weeks and chart the progress of this instead - I'll go back to the Antikythera Mechanism once this is done.
I need more hours in the day....

Often this kind was used. And I think it's good.

I have used plans from both Clayton & Brian Law. Both are great sites.I think Brian's plans were easier to work with But I really didn't have any trouble with Clayton's.

Thanks for the update MM,

It is amazing what they were capable of building 2100 years ago.  Even more amazing is that they were able to plan out a gear train with that much complexity just based on observations of the sky.  And all of this was done before telescopes were invented.
