Mike Edkins'

 

Skeleton Clock

 

Powered by a 'Magic' Motor

 

 

This  timepiece was a Meccano 'first'.  By the ingenious use of a single Meccano 'Magic' clockwork motor in conjunction with a fusee and spring barrel to compensate for the motor's weakening output as it unwinds, the clock runs for at least 24 hours on a single winding, and for 30 when the passing strike is turned off.

 

The elegant, ornate framework is based on a John Wilding design and shows the inner workings of the clock mechanism.

 

20 pages including 18 colour photographs and parts list, plus a separately-stapled  booklet of isometric diagrams.
