This video shows a self oscillating ball pendulum, that feeds a ten counter balance. If I’ve had enough time, Meccano and balls, the idea was to built a complete clock, with a set of sequential balances, that together would display the current time. Also, it would have been nice to fall a sleep at night to the gentle sound of a ticking ballclock.
