Does anyone have a copy of John Wildings book about making a Castle clock? I am currently making his Scissors clock and have got to the escape wheel. Unfortunately he simply says "use the same cutter as you did for the Castle Clock".

I don't have that book so if you do, would you be kind enough to look up the dimensions of the cutter for me please?

It was serialised in the Horological Journal [which I do have] in 1989-1990

Part 4 included this:
