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.

But its all worth it in the long run.

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
