This is one of my first designs (6 years old!) so if I were to invest in redoing it in steel I would probably make the following changes:

  1. Fix the gears - There are two fixes I'd recommend. First I'd design the gearing to correspond in some logical way to the pendulum swing. Gear it so that it ticks approx 60 around and 1 per second. Second I'd probably use a software for gears (I did mine by hand tracing).. I've heard good things about this software https://woodgears.ca/gear/
  2. Make room for ball bearings - I'd build space for ball bearings into the case.

You'd probably have to redesign it significantly for steel but it would be a cool project!
