There was a crooked man and he walked a crooked mile,
He found a crooked sixpence upon a crooked stile.
He bought a crooked cat, which caught a crooked mouse.
And they all lived together in a little crooked house

I remember this nursery rhyme  from my childhood -“There was a Crooked Man”, and I loved  it.

Someplace on the web I saw a clock mechanism that used “unround” gears and I was fascinated by it.  So I put both my brain cells to work at the same time and came up with this - thanks to


This clock was completely designed with the Gearotic Motion program.

The spread sheet has to use “lobes” of the eccentric gears to calculate the reduction rather than teeth which only change the gear size.

The ratios then are:

60 tooth escape at 1 sec pendulum is 2 min/rotation.

Next 3:9 = 3 or 6 minutes

Next 1:5 or 30 minutes

Finally 1:2 or 60 min at GW.i

This "Clock" is still under construction
