I'm doing it right now. Just starting tough.
One question, if anyone is building it too, do we have to make the markings for the scores on piece a-05 by ourselves? To fit in piece A-01?
>>
>>539515
is the same that a metallic pendulum clock... but in paper... soooo can give you a real accuracy

Well, this is my progress, it was so hard, but im going finish, only some details,
The piece P1: the piee paper show 5 moldes, when you need 6, make a copy.
And in the intrucction, when you fusion the frame B the sighn of O11 and O10 is it grown, but is a mistake of number, nothing anymore.
About my frame, i started without gears becase the gears are little bend, the glue deformed the paper, so i make a corrections before the fusion of everything pieces.
Sorry for my grammar, im from ecuator.

It is probably, in this case im going use stong material.
in this picture All the gears stay "in situ".
The frames suffer the most damage because i needed change for fit the sticks.
The only problem now is separate the gears of other gears.
And the anchor. RECOMENDATION. Do not glue L10, at least, not behind of the anchor, this piece is a long separate innecesary of the teeth of escapement
>>
Amazing work OP. Keep updating us, please!

nice work !!! keep updating process pls. it very helpful
>>
>>542937
What paper are you using, if you think it's too thick for the mechanism would you suggest using thicker cardstock for the frame and lighter cardstock for the mechanisms? I'm very interested in making this but I live in a shit desert that relies on swamp coolers to fill the air with water and even cardstock warps inside.

Hello it's me, the ecuatorian boy.
The road to this point was difficult,
The frames fuck everything.
The space between anchor and escapement (her teeth) not fits, yet.
Now i waiting for the dry off the glue.
And the munite hand, i recommend change the step 3 (on the step 38), cut one part of the asis ( or stick) and paste this inside the hole of 12teeth gear type b (the little gear front 48 teeth gear).
i think so, this is the real impulse of minute hand.
If you only put the minute hand on the asis, this roll without control because the gears more heavy behind them move the asis, and the minute hand, like light piece move on with the rhythm of the other gears.
Again, sorry for my grammar, i started learn with duolingo

Dear anon glad to see you build the Paper Clock. I have too started it but stopped a few months ago when my dog ruined part of it (my fault I tested the gears after putting the string on the mechanism and left it on the floor) This urges me to go back and finish it!

The vast majority of stuff in a clock is just crap to display the time - that is, almost all the gears are there to divide down the amount of rotation. The fundamental accuracy (or lack) of a clock comes down to two or three main things: the escapement (the escape wheel + pallets), the pendulum, and what powers the escapement.

The escapement is the most critical piece; you have losses due to friction, to how the pallets and the wheel interact, recoil, etc. (See the fine wikipedia article for more detail.) With paper, you have less thermal expansion to worry about, but humidity levels can cause even bigger shifts in size.

For more technical details, I recommend the books "The Quest for Longitude" (Andrewes, ed; Harvard) or "Watchmaking" (George Daniels).
>>
>>542937
Holy crap anon, you are a madman. This would be challenging to make as a machinist, much less out of paper.

Clock looks awesome. What weight paper did you use and what are the general opinions on sticking paper together to thicken it?

It is so many work, maybe before the end of this year i can finish the clock, all the problem is the escapement and the anchora, the teeth do not fit.
Another thing, you need 50 grames or more for the weith. And a stick for more resistence
About the gear sphere, i hate make all this axis.

Hi OP, I made this clock about 6 years ago as a gift for my father. From your pictures I don't think you have made the gears to a fine enough tolerance, are you flooding them with glue too? If a couple of teeth are wonky the mechanism will jam (as I found out) and you will need to use more weight to get it to turn causing the structure to bend.

I have also made the gear heart and this suffers from the same problem you need at most a 1.5mm tolerance on most pieces otherwise it will jam and bend.

Good luck friend.
>>
>>542439
E6 is a supporting piece, it allows you to mount the eyelet punched piece inside the gear for if you are using a hand eyelet punch. If you are using a vertical punch you can ignore it and make the gear completely.
>>
>>547348
Not Op but I plan on making this clock, what do you mean by the tolerances and flooding with glue?
>>
>>547401
For tolerances I mean that each tooth needs to be as close to the plan as possible, they mesh together very closely. You can flood the teeth with glue if you start to get lazy making the gears and try to rush. Best advice is to glue teeth in pairs at 180 degrees to each other and take it slow. Good luck.
>>
>>547453
I see, thanks anon
>>
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ROuPRs_rJi0
>>
Another anon trying to make this here, if I make the gears and harden them with a thin layer of diluted glue even if they don't warp will it mess up the tolerances?
>>
>>548616
You may need to lightly sand the gear teeth to make sure everything fits smoothly. The only two pieces that really matter in term of tolerances and fit are the anchor and escape wheel.
>>
>>548630

Just doing this right now, and I’m wondering - in the diagram for the 20 tooth gear, it appears that the gear front and back go through the outline of the teeth. Do I need to cut a flap for that, or do I just assemble it like the other gears?

"Go through"? C6 has extra bits that you fold over onto the teeth on each side. But that gear is constructed kind of strangely.

Holy fuck, you actually did. Good job anon! What sort of changes did you do to the templates?
>>
>>572028
I've changed several curved lines in templates to straight lines, where it doesn't influence the function. It's easier to cut and glue straight lines, obviously. Also, look at the teeth of the gears. They have new flaps design, so the flaps are bigger and easier to glue. This cuts time on glueing gears significantly
>>
>>572027
It looks like the gears only have one half of the teeth covered, on alternating sides?

>>572054
yes, this was necessary to allow larger flaps. the original flaps design was a PITA to cut and glue. Larger tabs can be glued to the front, much faster and easier. To have a clean look you just need a second layer of them on the front side (didn't do it here, as this was an experimental build).

Has anyone made one of the cardboard clocks before? This is my third time buying it because I messed up the first two. How do you keep the cardboard layers from warping? Should I not use white glue?
>>
>>577880
I tried the Wrebbit kit like 25 years ago; if it's still the same, the way I did it was to glue everything in the gear together *except* the hub in the middle, and then put the almost-complete gear under a couple of books to keep everything nice while drying. The frames are less critical to keep straight; really, it's the escapement that's the thing that's the most critical to get right.

Aw, no need for solipsism. Instead, consider that the fundamental basis of something might be subtle and easily overlooked in favor of its more flashy parts. (And that it took 150 years from the first scientific examination of pendulums to develop a stable clock to become useful for navigation.) What's really important is sometimes not obvious at all, and can be a long time in coming.

This is a very bittersweet thread for me.

Watching this thread makes me think about the heat death of the universe, and I'm a pretty comfy guy - I think that things are going to be alright, but this really puts everything into perspective.

Hey guys, I just wanted to share mine. The video is from a science festival in which I explained to kids how clocks work. They were fascinated, and some of them were quite scared when I told them that I was going to charge its battery with water. It was a fun experience.

Note that the last frame is not glued so that it can be transported more easily.

is it ok to use 70 gsm a4 paper?
>>
>>608507
Depending on which part it is, you may need to laminate two sheets together or douse most of the paper in glue to get the needed rigidity, especially for the frame in general and the Frame A parts that support the weights (see instructions 36-38). For parts like the hands or other gears that aren't under much torque, 70gsm is probably fine.
>>
>>608272
after 6 years the prophecy is complete
>>
>>608272
Fuck this looks amazing anon
>>
if im not mistaken the red line from instructions are also glue lines?
>>
>>608272
Impressive, lets see OP's paper clock
>>
>>608272
holy fuck thats cool
that's ALL paper?! I know nothing about papercraft and am just here to pay my respects but god damn thats amazing.

Question though, if it's just paper how does it hold it's own weight? I mean, paper isn't well known for being a sturdy material
>>
>>608732
There are several things going on:
1) the directions do say to use slightly thicker paper than usual
2) the glue acts as a stiffener; glue+paper is a composite laminated material, essentially, and can stand up to force better than either material alone, and
3) a fold provides extra resilience along that axis; see the videos on "why folded pizza isn't floppy" or search for "gaussian curvature pizza" for more details (the fold restricts the degrees of freedom, more or less)
>>
How does this work without a battery?
>>
>>609163
It does have a battery, but it's not electric. See the water bottle hanging there? That's the (gravitational) battery.

When you lift an object, you are increasing its energy. If you then drop it, it will fall, releasing the energy.

That bottle over there is slowly falling (part of the mechanism of the clock is precisely ensuring that it will fall slowly and at a constant rate), giving its energy to the clock. When it gets to the floor, the clock will stop as the battery would be exhausted.

How gears work or making paper gears?

its a complex timepiece
>>
>>609163
It just does because of pendulum mechanics ok
>>
>>614683
that would be soulless
>>
>>614378
The pendulum is to keep steady time. It's what lets the weight that powers the clock >>609223 fall at a controlled rate. Each swing of the pendulum allows the gears to advance one tick.
>>
>>609223
>It does have a battery, but it's not electric. See the water bottle hanging there? That's the (gravitational) battery.
You're being needlessly pedantic. It's not a battery BECAUSE it's not electric. When someone says "battery," like >>609163, they are obviously thinking of an electric battery.
>>
>>614776
not really
>>
>>614683
paper is the color

you should color it

I think that would ruin it. The achievement is doing it in paper, so it should look like paper.

You put weight on a string and the gravity pulling on it will supply the force for the whole thing to work
Once the weight goes down enough, you will have to reset it
The rest is just gear fuckery
>>
>>615365
Could be cardboard, cardboard is pretty good since it's more durable than regular paper.

Seriously, sometimes the internet can be something simply absurd, a topic with more than 7 years of existence around a paper pendulum, that's wonderful, haha

there's something poetic about attempting to suspend a thread about a clock in time forever
whether it be a well-refined sense of irony or a perverse sense of nostalgia
in the 24 hours since /po/ harbour, I've had some time to meditate on it, and although the raiding and the spamming and the flooding probably isn't the right way to pay respects to what has been a collective curiosity of the entire image board, continuing to bastardise the thread, up to and including the removal of posts that are actually crucial to the topic of the thread, seemingly just to spite the people that came to pay their respects, flies directly in the face of not just this website and how it was designed, but the very concept of linear time itself

and so, I shall leave you with this
Boethius, mid-century Roman philosopher, theorized that time was a wheel
>"Inconstancy is my very essence" says the wheel
>"Cast yourself up on my spokes if you like, but don't complain when you are cast back down into the depths"
>"Good times pass away, but then so do the bad"
>"Mutability is our tragedy, but it is also our hope"
>"The worst of times, like the best, is always slipping away"

it's over
I said what I said
>>
>>619512
The only way this thread is going to die is if we come together to make our own pendulum clock and post our daily progress here so that this thread can finally die the way it started. I'll try to see about making something about mine unique though. We must break the time loop.
