The Escape Wheel Pinion

Reference no 230



The Escape Wheel Pinion (230) is driven by the Fourth Wheel (224). The Escape Wheel in turn interacts with the Pallet Lever (710).



The Wheel Train starts to the left with the Barrel (182) which drives the Center Wheel (201) pinion. The rotation speed is further increased via the Third Wheel (210) to the Fourth Wheel (224), which makes one revolution per minute and has the second hand attached to its arbor. Finally the Fourth Wheel engages the Escape Wheel Pinion (230).
