does anyone have Paper Pendulum Clock kit or pattern? I have a kind of kit book but it quality is bad. pls share if you have better. I really want to make this one. thank you!
>>539497>>539498thank you. thank you very much!
>>539494how many people actually have the patience to build that shit ? also does anyone now the accuracy of this clock ?
>>539499no worries man, post it if you make it. i don't have what it takes
>>539515some man really did it. it only need some patience. and this clock work, real running
>>539516it will take time but yes !
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?
>>539515is the same that a metallic pendulum clock... but in paper... soooo can give you a real accuracy
Anybody knows about other funtional papercraft. I want to do more.Also here is my progress (at least paper 6, tomorrow im gone print paper 7 and 8, 2 papers for day ) i hope in a month finishIgnore the mistakes, im not from USA
try gear heart and gear sphere. even harder than this.
>>542304and gear sphere
>>542304>>542305please, please, anybody have those papercraft?
look here. it have link for the whole parts for the gear hearthttp://sabi996.deviantart.com/art/ Papercraft-Gear-Heart-Download-347989424
Sorry but i do not understand this part , anybody can explain me?For what is E6?
Anybody knows about for what it is this piece?
>>542312I have the gear cube.
>>542312And the instructions.
>>542629Thank you so much, i can made this pieces of the clock, and i promise make the cube, this is my compromised
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.
>>542853nice work. keep doing this. good luck!
Do not put L10, because with this piece, the anchor do not fits with the escapement, my solution is put L 10 and L11 together
Here goes the weith.., really for me,was the most confusion step, for this reason, i made after of all
>>542890Good job. Can't wait to see the end result.
I think your paper are too think. After your clock finish, hope still can move without any destruct.
>>542896i mean too thin.
>>542896It 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
>>542937What 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
Hello my dear readers.I belive, i am the only who support this thread alive.Well, now i in stanby for the clock, only need rise the asis of ancora, everything else is fine, and the hour and minute hand goes in perfect sequence. Maybe later a take a picture.Here is the gear sphere cube, the first parts. It is like a cupcake cover.
wow! patient man :)) can you take pic about how the clock work? how can we run it?
This is really cool! Learn how to make gifs or webm because we'd love to see the result in motion!
>>543238Relax dude, im going use format factory (transformation video), now i make the finals corrections and the pieces of gear sphere, wait 3 days or less, i promise
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!
>>543252Thats incredible anon!Good job
>>543252Looks beautiful. Great job anon
>>542629Thanks Anon, I have been looking for this one for a LONG time now.
>>539515The 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).
>>542937Holy crap anon, you are a madman. This would be challenging to make as a machinist, much less out of paper.
>>543252Clock 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 resistenceAbout the gear sphere, i hate make all this axis.
>>546309its looks gr8
>>546309Looking good so far
>>546309Hi 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.
>>542439E6 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.
>>547348Not Op but I plan on making this clock, what do you mean by the tolerances and flooding with glue?
>>547401For 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.
>>547453I see, thanks anon
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?
>>548616You 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.
>>548630Nice, thanks Anon
Really inspired by this thread. Would love to see the end result!
>>546309Any progress with this project? Did you finish it?
>>550243not yet dude, the ancora is a problem
Yet another anon here. Thanks for this one guys. I just printed layout on flourescent orange/green alternating pieces. Hopefully i can finish this and show it off here sometime soon.
>>539498>Paper Pendulum ClockThanks
You NEED to finish this!
Here's the essence of a clock, in only a few components: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KGPjPKZ8sjU
>>542937why you're using regular papper? I'm always using bristol papper.
I don't want this thread to die.
>>539494>misclick to /po/ instead of /pol/>see this threadWHAT IN TARNATION?! Holy crap I'm really impressed.
>>560365>>misclick to /po/ instead of /pol/
>>560379I'm rather enjoying my stay, I'd prefer not to see these currently.
>>560379>>560382but that did make me chuckle so props to you
>>539494mfw it works
This is really cool, definitely going to attempt it.>this thread is two years old
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?
>>563254"Go through"? C6 has extra bits that you fold over onto the teeth on each side. But that gear is constructed kind of strangely.
>>550933Did you ever have any success with this anon?
>>562717It does look cool, but looks way too complex for me. I've barely done any papercraft to begin with.
>>539494this is cool.
>>539494bump because I don't want to lose this
>>563382im so tired, the pendulu, is very difficult, and yeap...like 3 years and i cant finish
>>566406Hang in there anon. I believe in you.
Hope you can complete it one day! Somebody has to archive this thread ...
>>566406Damn, I wanted to build it. When I read your replies, now it seems impossible.
>>566406YOU CAN DO IT OPGANBATE
>>566406Do it lad; by the power of wishing energy, I believe in you
Ihr habt den Weg vom Wurme zum Menschen gemacht, und Vieles ist in euch noch Wurm. Einst wart ihr Affen, und auch jetzt ist der Mensch mehr Affe, als irgend ein Affe.
>>566406Come on anon, don't give up
>>566406Please dont give up after all this time...I'm rooting for you anon!
>>563503Back to r9k
H-03 are small parts for connecting the pieces of the large gears
here's my test build. not using eyelets for this, also did some changes to templates to simplify the work. not working steadily yet, only for a couple of minutes. will introduce a few more tweaks soon
>>572027Holy fuck, you actually did. Good job anon! What sort of changes did you do to the templates?
>>572028I'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
>>572027It looks like the gears only have one half of the teeth covered, on alternating sides?
>>572054yes, 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).
This thread is too low. Bumping cause I don't want to lose it. Will start making it soon.
>>573355Please don't bump threads too quickly on /po/. It takes around 2 months for a thread to drop to page 10 here. The last post (>>572593) was barely a month old.
>>573407You're right. The problem is that I can't come here often and this is already on page 8. I really don't want this thread to die, I'm really sorry.
wtf, why the fuck is /po/ so god damn fast! in only a single week this shit thread reached the 7th page, instead of the usual 60 days, holy mother of shiet!!!
>>575008Page 7 is practically the front page on /po/ standards compared to the other boards.
>>575008>>575008more like 3 weeks sinces the post before yours is 22 days old.
>>539494So, OP, any updates?I hope this>>575846is not you
but why do all this when you can wear a digital watch on your wrist?
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?
>>577880I 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.
>>578027its worth a try. I bought this 3 years ago and havent built it yet but the box is the same as the one I got in 1999 so it hasnt changed.I just want to make a neat clock without the gears warping to hell
Any updates OP?
>>578063Hello from 2020.OP might even be dead at this point who knows
>>545952>It's like all of my fucking phobias and fears go not just to generational loss of pirated media, but all the way down to the accuracy of a second and the speed of light. Anon, my life was going great. You have put me in a solipsistic tail spin that will be haunting me for the next 30 to 70 years. What you have told me, is that I can't even trust the fundamental mechanics of time keeping.
>>583141Aw, 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.
4 years huh? Don't bury this yet. I am still planning on building this one day. When I have time.
>>584455This board is as fast as my dreams too
Je viens de la terminer, un vrai plaisir à faire et en plus elle fonctionne
>>539494Is OP still alive? Also, this thread is almost 5 years old. Who would have thought.
>>591864 I am the one who ask for the kit at the beginning, such a long time since i ask for it. i didnt make it though, life busy and hard for me. But seem you guys really making progress, great to see that, lets keep this for another 5 years :D
I want to build this in the summer
The Historical preservation committee has inducted this into the archives for future generations to enjoy.
>>542853is that a bionicle toy?
>>594869Nah not really.Only problem is that content stops flowing on the threads so it kinda dies but doesn't die in the system.Just make new threads.
It take months for a thread to end here, threads die in 15 minutes on pol.
>>592777Sadly I do not have time to build it this summer. Maybe next year
>>539494I hope OP still has his clock
hey everyone i really hate adding to the post count on such a historic thread but i edited the pdf to be printed on standard letter sized paper without having to scale the source (because it was sized for a4 paper which is very uncommon in north america)have fun i plan to start this project soon. i'll make a new thread with my progress some day.
>>596889Good luck to you anon, by the way do you have the a4 version of this project?
>>597047i guess i'm blind, thanks
>>566406please OP i believe in you, I saw this thread 5 years ago and I'll be here for 5 more, I hope you can finish this
>>566406anon don't give up
>>539494You can do it OP
>>539494The other paper craft thread fucking died damn
>>566406never give up fren
Op Still building it?
Is that thread about cracking some design software still up on /ic/?
We all believe in you
>>566406Life is long. The longest thing you'll ever do.
>>566406>im so tired, the pendulu, is very difficult, and yeap...like 3 years and i cant finishIt's never too late anonYour fortune: Feliz Navidad!
>>566406And it's been three more years again, including two of the most agonizing and isolating ones ever, even for us. I was in high school when you started this thread. I didn't even know about the infamous hacker then. You're thread is a nostalgia trip by itself.I hope you're still working on your pendulum clock, /po/anon. I check in once in a while just to see how you're doing.
>>539494To put this in perspective, this thread was posted 2,070 days ago. A child could've been born on May 17, 2016 and entered kindergarten just 4 months ago. 5 birthdays, 3 presidents, 2 decades, 3 PMs. Oregon votes to nominate Trump as the Republican candidate, who seems to have a one in a million chance of winning. 69 people are killed and 230 are injured in a series of bombings in Baghdad. And a man on 4chan decides to post about help for a clock pendulum thing.
I dont know why this OP is still alive. LMAO. is someone really making that clock? or we all just wait for some god come and save us all :D :D :D
I hope OP survived the pandemic
No offence intended, but why is /po/ still its own board? This thread is so old, it has seen 3 different Presidents. And it's not like it was forcefully bumped or anything.There are less than 10 posts made each day. The board itself has seen just 60,000 posts in the last 5 years, based on OP's post number. In comparison, a high traffic board like /tv/ or /vg/ probably sees 60,000 posts each week.Unless I'm very much mistaken, /po/ is the least active board of the entire site by a considerable margin. Even /p/ is considerably more active, and that's a ghost town due to it being gatekeeped by gearfags who don't consider you a real photographer unless you delete 95% of what you take. Even hobby boards on infinite leading up to Patsy Jewsius' false flag like their version of /o/ were more active than this board is right now./po/ could easily slot into /ic/ as a permanent cyclical general.
>>602040This board is one of the few where requesting is allowed, and PDFs can be uploaded.
>>602059This must have been where it happened
If it's not a 24 hours clock get it away from me
>>566406do it faggot
keep it alive, no matter what
>>539494This thread is 6 years old oml this board is slow, is OP still even around? Also, only now learning PDF is a supported file type on 4chan, maybe just on /po/
>>602697dont let the dream die
>>539499you're a great man, so thankful
>>566406Don't give up.
>>602990The earlier incarnations of Futaba (and still, on 2chan) had thread pruning, but that went away a long time ago. Now threads just die when they reach bump limit and fall off the board.
>>539494Cool project OP, I assume by now it's complete and prominently displayed in your house
>>539494Cool clock anon
>>540434Yeah, you need to make the markings.
>>539494Post when completed
Is this thread genuinely just being kept alive by a janny that deletes posts at random? I mean holy shit, they deleted some on-topic posts, but kept up a few off-topic ones seemingly at random. Like this guy replying to a deleted post >>603157 somehow survived a number of purges.At least answer me first before deleting, I'll read the response in the archive.
>>539494What does a paper pendulum clock actually do?
toasting in an epic bread
God this thread gives me hopeiumEven though the op may be deadI better get my shit together
>>605458Keeps and displays time, see this wikihttps://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Clock
>>605300Gotta keep it alive
This is a very bittersweet thread for me.When this was posted, I was underage b&.It's a weird fucking feeling, especially because I post on much faster boards. Over time though, I've found that my preferences shift to slower and slower boards.I wonder if one day, I'll only post on a ghost board, days between posts, nevermind replies.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.Bless all those that read this post.I'll try making this clock one day, mark my words.
No clue sorry
I can confirm posts are being deleted, my post saying>this thread will get another 6 yearswas deleted, why?guarantee this post will get deleted toowhich makes this thread a complete sham, if it survived 6 years on it own that would be something, but this isn't an achievement
going through this archive this bread was a wild ride
Hahaha what the fuck, was looking through /po/ like I do once in a blue moon and had to do a double take to check if it was the same thread I replied to years ago. Bless this board and everyone in it
>>605802Yeah it might as well be a sticky if it's manually being kept alive.
People who were children when this thread was made are now old enough to legally shitpost. I hope OP succeeded in making his clock.
>>605873>mfw I was 16 when this thread was made. Jesus fucking christ.
>>539494did OP ever end up finishing it?
>>606092That's just not nice anon, I decided to make this one with my little sister and now I have to find my way around to explain what's happening on the last picrel.
>>605873>>606074I was 15 years old when this was made, I am 21 years old right now. Man, I feel old.

Someone posted this in the middle of yesterday's raid, but I think it is a good resource.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HPXsmAEFuP0
>>607497that would be the same clock as in >>583181
So... is OP still here? How's his progress?
>>607934He’s “taking his time”
OP should give an update on if he ever succeeded
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.
>>608272This anon actually did it....The thread can finally rest
>>608272Finally, someone delivered
>>608272Holy fuck, awesome
>>608272ayy!! super cool to see one of these in action finally. good work anon!also goddamn it's surreal to see a still active 4chan thread made in 2016. i know this board has always been slow but holy moly 6 years? doesn't feel like it's been that long.
>>608272fantastic work anon, you might come up with a couple nice printed panels for the front and use it like a normal clock if you can mount it somewhere at eye level, switch em out or make new ones whenever you're boredwa la paper faced paper made clock
Someone has delivered the breadNow make a collage out of the thread before It gets nuked
is it ok to use 70 gsm a4 paper?
>>608507Depending 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.
>>608272We did it Team RedditWE WON
>>608272after 6 years the prophecy is complete
>>608272Fuck this looks amazing anon
if im not mistaken the red line from instructions are also glue lines?
>>608272Impressive, lets see OP's paper clock
>>608272holy fuck thats coolthat'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
>>608732There are several things going on:1) the directions do say to use slightly thicker paper than usual2) 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, and3) 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?
>>609163It 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.
Performing a necropsy+attempting repair on a pocket watch taught me a couple things about clocks. I will someday make my own personal trip to paper clock mecca.
>>608272>he did it
>>566406yeah im gonna need an update on that one
>>542554I think that's the stand for the pendulum i'm pretty sure, I've actually made this piece some time ago.
