Using Lead. Have melted it onto the canisters yesterday.
The templates in paper helps for cutting the blank on the band saw (and to layout the various blanks onto the original plate, avoiding too much waste).
That looks great, Are the weights aluminium with brass top and bottom? Is it filled with lead?
The itch is just about irresistible!
You are almost finished and you are hearing that thing come alive. Tick-Tock-Tick-Tock-Tick-Tock-Tick-Tock.
I can almost hear it.
Way to go Wagner
The canisters are 4 in OD aluminium tube, caps 1/2 in aluminium plate with 1/32 brass bandings (like venner in woodworking)
Inside, cast lead. The weight is about 16 and the bob 10 Lbs.
There is still a lot to do, but the thing is running.
Going to concentrate now on dials and hands.
Yes, the electronic gizmo is used to test the movement timing and beat. It receives ticks from the GPS system and compares with the clock ticks via acoustic or optical transducers. Also there is a Temperature and Humidity sensor.
