Have decided to build two samples of your latest clocks. One with the coup perdu option and the second with the deadbeat option.
I have the coup perdu running without the pendulum bob which is still on the printer.
Steve, this clock came together without a hitch. It was a breeze. No filing, not fitting required. About the only thing that I had to do was drill out the holes for the arbours. This was the easiest clock to get going so far.
I did have one thing that I am still playing about with.
The position on the flipper where the magnet is to be glued, seem to be too closes to the hinge and when the flipper moves out of the way, the magnet is still close to the reed switch and it does not want to switch off and hence the rewind motor does not want to stop. At the moment, I have just put the felt pad just near the hinge to decrease the magnetic field reaching the reed switch. This seems to work. I am however thinking about moving the magnet further up the flipper to increase the distance between reed switch and the magnet.
The reed switches that I brought were the ones that you recommended from Amazon.
