How to make a timer in Minecraft?

Timers (clock generators) are circuits that cyclically change their state. They are controlled by connecting levers, and restarted by updating any block that is close to them or installing a torch next to it. How to make a timer in Minecraft?

A ring consisting of an odd number of NOT gates is the very first and simplest type of timers. The generator, consisting of NOT gates and repeaters, is easily adjustable, convenient and compact. If there are about two inverters (NOT gates), then the generator is unstable, therefore it is better to make a large ring from the repeaters, since in this case the generator is more stable. Railway timers are simple in construction and configuration, but cumbersome and expensive, they cannot be built without gold. Pulsars are based on the property of the torch when turned on, then off of itself and the emission of an unstable series of pulses. When connecting outputs to the torches, we get a random sequence generator.And using red dust, we get a fairly fast timer.

After this brief introductory course we will take a closer look at how to make a timer in Minecraft. The timer in this game is not done so easily and quickly, so for better perception we suggest you watch the training video () from a young gamer who will explain how to make a timer.
