Default Re: Pulsynetic master clock: question about gravity arm roller.

Thanks, everyone. It's not something you could assemble in your mind from the words alone.

It's elegant how the weight of the roller is used to impart a soft force, without trying to force a position.

I think I may have used something a bit more electromagnetic, seeing as there are once per 30 second pulses on the go, but maybe that force would not be quite so stable as the weight of the roller?

The stirrup and the deepened notch on the escapement are just plain clever.
