If you follow the instructions precisely then be prepared to fudge it just a little when done, you will have a working clock. Mine has been running now for 3.5 hours with a steady even beat after some adjustments. The instructions, while initially cryptic, are excellent. The parts separated from the plywood brilliantly with minimal cleanup. It took me about 3 and a half hours to complete the build and the build process is quite logical. Once completed, I ran it without the pendulum in place to make sure the gears were free to turn, I then inserted the pendulum into the escapement gear and off it went. It wasn't perfect yet. I had to adjust the plastic grommet positions on the position of the pendulum itself on the hanger. Once I had all gears aligned parallel to each other and running free I gave it a partial wind and it ran for 90 minutes on a partial wind, after which I wound it completely. It makes a lovely sound, being wood on wood movement. If I were to build another I would apply the paraffin to all the gear teeth just to make them a little slipperier. Great product.
