I just posted an image and link for an Arnfield escapement built in Meccano, in its own thread.  Maybe it will help?

There's the short version of that URL.  And, you're right...that is a VERY nice animation.

The Meccano diagram I mentioned above is at http://www.bealltool.com/clockforum/index.php?topic=252.0
