From the most ancient times, we’ve been attracted by items made with soul, sense and idea. People put a lot of effort into design and technological advances of cars, mechanisms, planes and steam engines. Even after lots of time these items still captivate our minds just like the mechanical automatons of the past and figures by such wizards as Peter Carl Fabergé. Their inventions are presented in museums and exhibited in private collections.
In the modern world, due to modern technologies there is a possibility to become a wizard by yourself and you personally can create something as attractive and innovative.
That’s why we have set the goal to create the most beautiful construction set in the world. The set ,which you can easily assemble into a mechanical piece of art. Time for machine is the first exclusive construction set worth your attention.
We have already had a successful Kickstarter campaign in 2017. It was our first step, when we showed our first four models and fulfilled our obligations. Since that time we have fine-tuned our product, removed all shortcomings, reached better results in designing and assembling the models.
Time For Machine is a new perspective in the world of construction sets - unique models made of metal, which you can personally assemble.
Each model has a detailed instruction in several languages. However, the assembling process will be much easier if you watch our video instructions. These video lessons will help you with mechanics and STEM 101.
Inside the package you’ll see the special black envelope divided into sections. Special plates with metal parts will be inside. They're produced by chemical etching method and have smoothed and safe edges. Due to the special connections all parts can be easily separated from the plate. Parts can be easily bent by hands. In special the bottom compartments there are gears made of thick metal and a block with spring . Some models have special plywood moulds which can help to adjust the form of some elements of the model.
Each model can be assembled by using only tiny pliers. Parts are connected with each other with the easy twist of eyering. We also offer a set of professional assembling tools, which include 2 different types of pliers, 2 files and polishing cloth.
All our models are mechanical and have their own story. Movement of a gear wheel is movement of life. Covered in bright armor this mechanism will become a real centerpiece of your interior and a useful gift to a friend.
- The rapid train moves on the rails by the mechanical spring.
- The plane moves propellers from the mechanism in its base.
- Cars have clockwork mechanism and a steering system.
- You can open the hood and see the way the mechanism works.
- The Timer keeps the time.
- The Tank overcomes the obstacles.
The ideal construction set shouldn’t only be attractive but also move beautifully.

Our team consists of engineers, designers and technologists. More than 20 people work for Time for Machine in total.
Time for Machine company was founded in 2016. We have already had one successful kickstarter project in 2017. There were very few people in the team in those years. During the further development and execution of the previous Kickstarter we grew and gained experience. We replaced laser cutting production with chemical etching. This made the models much better and the edges of the parts safer. We redesigned the packaging and made it comfortable and elegant.
Several experienced designers joined our team from my past “Ugears” project. I would like to remind everyone that Time for Machine is a completely new project that has nothing to do with Ugears.
All this has led to the fact that we have a wide range of models and experience in their production.
Freedom. Wisdom. Interaction.
We develop our models in Ukraine and also now we have a team in the USA.
Risks and challenges
What we have:
1) Our own manufacture and many years of experience in business project management. We are confident in our ability to create original assembly models and bring joy to all those who supported us.
2) Experience in delivery and international transportation.
3) We have a well thought out plan how to proceed after the end of the project.
4) Our main marketing strategy is based on a true passion for mechanics and love for our work.
Our team is constantly engaged in developing of natural innovative models. This project is an extension of what we have achieved till now.
Our team is continuously working on new fascinating ideas for metal models. Current project will broaden and develop further what we have already achieved. With the support of Kickstarter – your support – Time For Machine can cross the borders of one country and offer our models to the world.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
