Great find, well worth spending a little time on it.


Thread: What 3 Words

I don't understand why, if the app' is sending a three word location, it can't just sent the latitude and longitude.

I realise that this must be 'old hat' for many but my first clock TICKS. Lots to do before it is finished but I'm 'quietly' pleased.

As an interested spectator to this thread, do you have an update?


Thread: Cutters
01/08/2019 11:45:39

Ahh thanks, I didn't notice that.

Don't know how to edit a post so an addition to the above!

The book Wheel and Pinion Cutting also details how to make the cutters.

Hello Ken,

I'm about half way through the Large Wheel clock. If I can help, feel free to ask. Only 2 cutters are needed if you decide to buy the pinions. I ended up making both the wheels and the pinions.

I found the J. Malcom Wilde book Wheel and Pinion Cutting in Horology a huge help in understanding how to cut the wheels and the pinions. I also had a lot of help from Sam who is a member here.


Thread: Wiggler or edge finder?

I must admit that when I worked in a toolroom we always used a 'fag' paper !

Thread: Which varnish?
12/06/2019 08:55:44

Wow, lots to choose from there

Many Thanks, David

Could anyone recommend a good varnish for brass? The only varnish I have come across is for wood. Is it the same stuff?

Thanks, David

Hello John,

There is a whole stack of talent on here willing to help as I've found out Shout if I can help.


Thread: Removing large flange nuts
15/03/2019 11:22:40

Hello Karl,

I sympathise, i've come across this before. The only way I have been able to do similar things is to make a dedicated 'C' spanner to fit the nut. I am assuming the blue handled spanner in the picture is the one you have been using. The spanner needs to be a perfect fit with no slack. Then the shaft needs to be locked in position, solidly. You can then apply serious leverage accompanied by some judicious shock to the 'C' spanner.

Good Luck
