Toucan

 

Here is the stunningly beautiful Toucan that Jeff built. It is an electromagnetically impulsed, table top clockworks.

This is the walking escapement that drives the Toucan. You can see this unique escapement in action in Jeff's video below.

Classic clean lines that would grace any mantle.

Jeff did an outstanding job creating his Toucan, as you can see in the video above. Jeff also took all of the photographs on this page--thanks, Jeff!

We also have a YouTube playlist of Toucans in motion, thanks to videos posted by their makers: Toucan Clocks on YouTube

The Toucan was a group project; Leonel initiated the inspiration, Jeff designed the electronics, Forrest designed the beautiful curves you see in the frame, and Adrian proved that the Toucan can be built as drawn, and he and Jeff also wrote a lot of the coil building instructions that kept Toucan from being relegated directly into Masochist's Corner.

Note that this clock uses electricity! Ooooo, scary! Do not order plans for this clock. If you are going to hurt yourself, don't order these plans. Make sure to take all safety precautions. Disclaimer, disclaimer, disclaimer, etc.

 

Toucan woodworking plans are available in TWO different formats. Please choose only one option:

The price of the paper plan delivered by U.S. mail is $50.00 plus shipping. If you would like to purchase Toucan paper plans by mail (our usual method), click here:

OR (something new!):

If you would like to purchase electronic plans in dxf format and receive them via email, you must:

1. Have a CAD program that can read dxf's.

2. Have a valid email address that can receive a 5 MB attachment. Add moalanikai@yahoo.com to your safe senders list so we don't end up in your spam filter.

If you prefer the dxf/email option, you will not receive a paper copy by regular mail. Plans purchased with the dxf option will be delivered to your inbox as an email attachment after payment is received, usually within 24 hours. The price of the dxf plan delivered via email is $47.00.
