Rolling Ball clock Answered

I was wondering if anyone on these forums think they could make one of these. It is such a interesting time piece and i think it would look great in any modern living room. I want to make one but the kits are kind of exxpnesive and its more fun if you can make it on your own. Here is some pictures.  Enjoy and thanks for your input :).

A Congreve clock. Very pretty, not very accurate. Plans for this classic appear in many model engineering magazines over the years.

One is even a major plot element in a book - "Trustee from the Toolroom" by Neville Shute.
