"Flying Pendulum"

This is the Flying Pendulum. I hesitate to call it a clock because, historically, flying pendulum "clocks" have always been notoriously inaccurate time keepers. But she is guaranteed to bring a smile to the people's faces. And here's the guarantee...If your clock fails to make people smile, send it back to me and I guarantee I'll find someone to laugh at it.

Flying Pendulum is unique in that she has no hands, and the dial is moved by a gear on the inside of the dial ring.. Interestingly, the drive pinion and the dial ring turn in the same direction - counterclockwise. This is always one of the first clocks that people notice when they come into my shop. This one really moves. That ball dances all over, winding and unwinding itself around the uprights. It's easy, interesting, fun and quite unique, and it really does make people smile.

The plans for this design include two variations, a wall mount, gravity driven 30 hour clock, and a desk top spring driven clock that runs about 3 or 4 hours on a wind...plenty long enough to elicit that smile.
