French Industrial Steam Engine Clock. A large central cylinder and piston with a vertical connecting rod powers the flywheel with a centrifugal governor assembly. The cylinder has two large fireboxes on either side mounted with boilers with all attendant pressure lines and tubing leading to the cylinder. There is also a barometer over the right firebox and a thermometer behind the cylinder. The automation is driven by a separate spring motor housed in the base, powering the flywheel.
"Wells Time Machine" | This commissioned piece is presently on permanent display at the Conger Street Clock Museum, located in Eugene, OR. Using antique mechanical items on display from the museum, a concept was developed and assembled over a 9 month period. Like all pieces produced in the past, this steampunk contraption is kinetic and interactive.
