    It does work. You have to be perfect with the cutting and the folds. It doesn't keep constant time, but it is a fun build.

    There was a thread about a paper clock (not sure if it was this one) here somewhere... I think the gist of it was if you are looking for a timepiece, this is not the one. If you are looking for a fun, different build, then have at it! Also, there appeared on eBay (US) a clock kit from Wrebbit. If it is like their other kits, the parts would be pre-punched, so perhaps more accuracy?

    paper clock

    About Amazon.uk paper clock, (I have it, but never built it) I remember having read somewhere you'll have trouble with it if you don't care about alignment of all gears, that is to say that their axes must remain horizontal (and gears vertical). Perhaps you could strenghten some parts to make sure the whole frame doesn't warp or distort. Otherwise, misalignments, as the gears bend forward or backward, produce friction more and more until the clock doesn't keep time at all.

    You could laminate them onto another sheet of cardstock and use dowels and plastic tube for keeping the axes alligned.

    My wife bought this book for me for Christmas this past year. I haven't started it yet, but according to many who have built it, you should purchase more than one copy, and precision is critical. If I get around to it soon, I will definately post any pics I may take! She also gave me the Wrebbit enchanted carousel...I am slowly working on it, and when I have a few more pics, will post these as well.
