Hi everyone.:wavinghi: Thanks for having me on your site. I am hoping to be a first time clock builder.

I want to build a clock for a clock-tower. The face diameter will be 1200mm.

I have downloaded a copy of Brian Law's clock no.1 which I hope to use as a basis for my design.

I also have a 3d model from Grabcad based on the same clock.

As the original clock is for a 300mm face, I want to enlarge the whole mechanism about 4 times if possible.

Are there any design problems I will need to consider? I would appreciate your thoughts.

Many thanks.

Ps. I went to a book fair on the weekend and picked up a very interesting book, "Clocks & Clock repairing," by Eric Smith.

If I am successful with this project, I will be glad to share drawings, models,photos, etc.
