I have printed over 10 of the Crazy Gear clocks, each one a little different. The latest one turned out to be the best yet. I have modified the original design to add a front plate that can be customized, and I often customize the face of the clock. I also combined the front and back frames into a single piece and added a brace at the top which uses a 3mm threaded rod to connect them. I have two Rat Rig printers which allow up to a 500mm build plate. Steve has been a great help in assisting with ideas and helping me with the mods. I strongly suggest purchasing the kits from him, it makes the assembly so much easier. I printed this one for one of my Nurse Practitioner who wanted it for her two sons.

Steve, I modified some of the gears to add heat set inserts. This made it easier to lock them down to the arbors. I can send those to you or you could think about including them. I made the hole 4.1 mm in diameter and added some width to the shaft on a few to make stronger

I have finished the first build of the deadbeat version. I do think this is the best design that Steve has made. I have posted a video on you-tube. I have included pictures of the motor - I had a little trouble figuring it out.
