A cylinder escapement. 294 shows the cylinder in perspective, and 295 shows part of the escape-wheel on a large scale, and represents the different positions taken by cylinder, A, B, during an oscillation. The pallets, a, b, c, on the wheel rest alternately on the inside and outside of cylinder. To the top of cylinder is attached the balance-wheel.
