I've been wanting to know how to make a piston clock in Minecraft. I've seen them before, but I don't have a clue how they are made. Is there an easy tutorial or something that I can follow? How can I make one easily?

    A hopper clock would probably be better right now.

    What exactly do you mean by a piston clock? do you mean a clock that tells time? Or a group of pistons that sends out a redstone pulse at a regular rate? (The later is the usual interpretation.)

    You're most welcome :) As I mentioned - it's not a trivial matter. If you are not comfortable with red stone circuits and logic, do start with something simpler, gain the required knowledge and build one yourself. The satisfaction will be much greater. ;) Commented Sep 21, 2013 at 18:58
