Introduction: Knex Grandfather Clock
This is the one, the only, the knex grandfather clock! It has hands that rotate clockwise! Every time it rotates one full circle rotation, it is equal to ten seconds. It has a fully loaded pendulum that swings back and forth, left and right! And, it looks cool in your living room! This is my first instructable, so remember to rate and leave nice comments
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Gears, Engine, and Hands
build the hands, gears, and engine.
it isn't very hard but your fingers will be sore afterwards
Step 2: The Pendulum
this is easy! it shouldn't be hard at all.
Step 3: The Locking Door
this will be the part that lets you open to see the pendulum. should not be so hard.
Step 4: Bottom Base
this is probobly the most important (and the hardest) part of this instructable. don't be confused by the pictures that are shown
Step 5: Pendulum+Gears, Engine, and Hands
get the pendulum and the other thing with the motor and connect like in the pictures. Otherwise, ithis should be easy as pie... Yum!
Step 6: Bottom Base+locking Door
put together the bottom base and the wierd locking thingy. basically, what the pictures are showing is that you snap together the two parts with the light grey connecters. by the way, i have no idea why the huge gray box is there. So don't harass me on the comment boards!!
Step 7: Final Connectings
put together the last two things that you just built and connect them together. it is sort of easy where they connect, but i just put pictures on in case someone has no idea about knex. Then, all you must do, is turn the switch to the right (as the last picture shows) and watch it go.
