I restored this Saegmuller clock drive, and had to design and manufacture the missing parts. It was missing the cable, pulley, drive weight, and the two small centrifugal weights on the governor assembly. 

The output shaft on this turns about once in 24 hours. It drives the equatorial mounting to make it follow the stars as they move across our sky.
