      Look up a poster called "clickspring" on youtube. This person has amazing detailed videos of machining and has a ongoing series of making a replica of this device using only methods that would have been available in antiquity.

        That guy is incredible. Lots of tool & die makers love his mastery of old school techniques in metal working and fabrication. He makes entire grandfather style clockworks from scratch with only hand tools. Truly a tour-de-force of skills and abilities.
