    it is probably because of used axle or bad bracing of the axle. The transmission has to be as smooth as possible, and I did not use any oil or grease 🙂

    Update: Solved the issue by removing the second handle’s connection to the back. Now it works fine. I like it!

    Hello! I built this clock, but unfortunately it seems that the normal wind-up motor is too weak to actuate the clockwork. Did you apply some special oil onto the mechanism or is my wind-up motor simply too weak?
    Thank you for your response

    Hi! I am Choi in S.Korea. I have a museum. The museum name is ‘Time Museum’. You can see my museum at http://www.jdjmuseum.com.
    This museum is displaying most unique and interesting clocks in the world. So, I would like to display your lego congreve clock. But I can not build it.

    Evening Nicolas,

    Are the instructions and parts list for sale for the Congreve Clock or cuckoo clock? I’ve tried looking but they don’t appear to be available.

    They look really fun!

    Thanks

    Hi! I know it’s been a while since you’ve uploaded this but can you please make a parts list / instructions? Thanks!

    Nicely executed! Maybe if the rocker was triggered earlier the clock wouldn’t lose as much energy to the spin of the weight at the end of the oscillator.

    Hello Nico,
    may you use another type of lego windupmotor to achieve higher autonomy and accuracity.At the moment i can remember the actual name but i remember the one which is quite similar to the old 9v motor was quite strong and enduring

  12. Compliquer et magnifique en même temps, comme toujours d’ailleurs.
    Les horloges occupent toute tes pensez, ça devient une obsession ou juste une très grande passion, en tout cas bravo cette construction est une vraie inspiration.

    This is some fine work. The precision of 1 second over 2 minutes is pretty good – I remember having an old wind-up watch as a kid that my grandfather gave me and it was always off by a few minutes at the end of the day. Congratulations!
