escapement testing

I finished building a pendulum and escapement out of plywood this evening. I haven't added any way to power the escape wheel, but just turning it by hand is enough to tell that the design works. I was afraid that the design required too much precision when cutting out the parts, but the thing worked on the first try with parts cut by hand with a jigsaw.
