That looks like it will be a fun project!
I have had "design Cuckoo Clock projects" on my ta-do list for years. I want to make one or more Black Forest versions. What has stopped me cold is finding a Cuckoo Clock mechanism that is good quality, but not too expensive (say, under $50).
I have located one Cuckoo clock movement at klockit.com, but it is about $80, which I assume might be cost prohibitive for a lot of people wanting to do the project themselves. (Maybe I'm wrong on that assumption.)
Do you know of any online source where there is a nice selection of various Cuckoo clock movement styles and prices to choose from? (I want one with the little birdie that comes out the door.)
