    Clock

    I have it, but never built it, and I remember a thread about: some work well, others don't, as the horizontal axis turning with the weels don't remain perfectly horizontals because of the weight, this results misalignment of the gears and causes frictions. Consequently, the clock doesn't keep time and slow down. Try to get the structure enough strong, especially if you intend to hang it on a wall, as it is hooked from one side only. Why not hanging from the ceiling, to avoid the square structure distorting and ending up in a parallelogram?

    Did you read the reviews on Amazon ? It seems to be a bit hit and miss.

    The clock is a commercial kit. Asking for copies of kits is not permitted on this site. As a general rule, we do not allow any breach of copyright, often called piracy. We generally do not encourage exchanges of kits through this forum. We do encourage people to exchange links to legitimate web sites, where the owners either offer free downloads or piad for downloads.

    Contact me by PM if you would like any further clarification
