I appreciate your helper. I have one of my own, He doesn't get on the work bench, but does curl around my legs. I also appreciate your skill level. I'm proud of mine, yours leaves me in the dust.

Hello,

Sorry but I have no updates. Just spent the weekend filing the plates edges.
Probably will have nightmares about files.

Nice work on the clock, is this a kit or did you cnc the frame ?
did your helper get his/her ear a little to close to a machine,
May need to get it some safety glasses

Hi Dlane,

I'm building from a plan (An Elegant Skeleton Clock by John Wilding).
Frame plates are 3/16" brass cut in my CNC router.
Boss got his ear trimmed by the rescue/neuter people.

The Boss certainly is getting pretty handy, I must say. Doesn't even get Dykem on himself either...

Thank you all for the comments. I appreciate it.

And the Boss likes it too.

Got his nose on the Dykem paintbrush once. Learned fast.

That's the cat's a$$!

Honest, it is a sign of respect for your work.
Apparently not a widely used expression but one that fits in two ways.
Here's a reference: http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=cats ass
(Neither my sons or my wife knew of the expression.....so I thought I should explain it.)

Hi David,

Unspecified brass plate, 3/32" thick.
I think it's 260
