…making a clock.

by Stephen Hobley on January 3, 2010

Not too bad for the first go...

I was inspired by the recent documentary on Kit Williams to look into wooden clock making. Also, I thought it would be an excellent test of the CNC router I built over Christmas.

So after a week of learning about ramping, lead in and out, cutting paths and other engineering type stuff I finally got all the parts together to start assembling my clock.

(The basement is currently swamped with sawdust, and failed gears…)

There are lots of plans for clocks out there, but in the end I went with one of the Brian Law designs.

At the moment the post holes I cut do not line up with the gears, so I need to rework them….
