Reconstructing The Antikythera Mechanism, by Clickspring
A video series documenting the reconstruction of The Antikythera Mechanism in its most authentic form to date, with the intention of establishing the precise machining tools, techniques and technology used to create it.
Thank you to the following viewers for suggesting this project:

The reason for the separate series is that there's a lot that I'd like to discuss about this machine, that requires a large amount of speculation and guesswork. I'd like the main series to be as fact based as I can get it, so when I know I'm clearly deviating into speculation territory, I'm going to hive the topic off into one of these "Fragment" videos.
It doesn't mean that I think the speculated idea is necessarily wrong, just that its more open for discussion. I'll share my thinking with you, and hopefully you'll have your own thoughts and share them too.
So what is a Spare Parts video? Generally it is a shorter video, with content that is based on a single process, rather than on a completed project. More than likely it is a sub process that has been broken out from a standard length project video, because to include it would have made the main project video too long.
