Connecting Machines
Whilst all three machines can work independently utilising their own power supplies, they can be connected together in any order using Steampipes. These pipes can be manufactured to a range of lengths and allow power and control signals to be shared between the machines. In addition to increasing the size of your steampunk creation, the Steampipes enable synchronous operation where the connected machines perform their hourly tasks sequentially. The Chronological Engine’s movement detector can also control the function of the connected machines. After an hour has elapsed, with no movement having been detected, all of the machines’ illumination lamps slowly fade down and the machines cease to operate. Upon first detecting movement, the illumination lamps slowly fade up, and each machine performs its function in sequence. If hourly chiming has been selected on the Chronological Engine, its bell will sound and then the Climatic Revelator will move through a complete rotation to display the current weather forecast, whilst sounding its chimes in a rising or falling sequence to indicate the pressure trend. Upon the Chronological Engine first detecting movement each day, the Gregorian Scribulator will erase its current information before writing the new day, date and month. The Steampipes are constructed from rugged reinforced pipe with a beautiful antique finish. They are attached to each machine with brass and copper plumbing fittings, promoting the illusion that no electricity is involved in the operation of the machines. All three machines come with a standard length Steampipes already connected. The lengths of the pipes can be customised if necessary for an additional cost.

The Chronological Engine can be connected to the Climatic Revelator and Gregorian Scribulator with steam pipes of varying length. This enables synchronous operation, where the machines perform their tasks sequentially, providing a joyous visual and audible mechanical experience!
