How does a mechanical timer work?

Mechanical timers depend upon force provided by the user. When you turn the dial to set a mechanical timer, you also provide the power needed by the timer to complete its cycle. Turning the timer compresses a spring. As this spring unwinds, it turns gears, which in turn causes the dial on the timer to move.
