Amazing craftsmanship. I am in awe.

I know nothing of clocks, but after seeing this, I am interested. I take it this is a replica of a very old clock? I googled some of the words on the glass and came up with some results from the 1600's. Is this your own version? Did you follow some plans?

Hi Strantor, thank you.

The words on the glass are a reproduction of the text on the cover of the book "Horologium Oscillatorium" by Christiaan Huygens (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Horologium_Oscillatorium) from 1673. This is the man who first described and built a successful pendulum clock.

My clock was built from the plans "A Small Weight Driven Tower Clock Movement" by John Wilding (http://www.clockmaking-brass.co.uk/tower clock.html).

And also, thank you for David, Nels, Firestopper, Savarin, CraigB1960 and Nel957

I must say I love the large pinions or do we call the larger a wheels?
Nelson

Looooking Gooood!
Are you going to use it in a tower or just as a clock?

Hi Nel957,

The pinions are 16 and 20 leaves, module 0.75 a little over 1/2 and 5/8 in diameter.
They are part of phase III. See post #124.

Absolutely Stellar Work!

I had caught some of it along the way, but just saw it again in "Project of the Month" so came back and read the entire thing.

I really appreciate not only the effort and skill that went into making the clock, but also the effort spent in documenting it so well and sharing it here.
Thank-You!

Have you (or would you) share some info on the "homemade CNC" you reference in your intro post?
