Can you tell me where to get small, accurate, 1rpm battery powered motors (preferably cheap) that don't slow down as the battery loses power?
Such a motor would be ideal for making clocks.
Simply direct drive your escapement secondary gear (you can delete the large gear).
I have considered doing this and leaving the escapement and pendulum in place thus eliminating the need for a drop weight.
You could have a dummy drop weight.
It should work but would only be as accurate as the motor.
Has anyone tried this idea?
