  • Making Wooden Clocks/Nelson

    I'm working on page 88, Kitchen Clock with Drawer, and am confused by clock dimensions. Item 13/movement-quartz has 3.25 diameter when the width of the front(item #3) is the same width. The exploded view suggest a 2 3/8th hole. What type of clock is illustrated? I checked Klockit. The exploded view indicates enough room for the clock....the measurements don't. What am I missing? Thanks for your help. It's a very nice book.

    Hi John,
    Here's what John said.

    Sorry I took so long in getting back to you...........I was away on vacation and just got back.

    Everything is correct as shown. The width of the front, part 3. IS 3 1/4 wide as noted........................the two side pieces, part 1 are 3/4 thick and go OUTSIDE the front so the width of the clock front is actually 4 3/4 wide, thus the 3 1/4 diameter movement will fit perfectly as shown. ..............I GATHER this is the question???? ANY 3 1/4 diameter quartz insert will work. I would suggest Klockit's no, 15561 should work. That insert uses a 2 7/8 dia. hole I think...........Don't drill the hole till you get the insert.

        Maybe nothing has changed ? But is there anything that can be done to make it easier. The very large projects are difficult to copy over several pages and put together properly. I believe in making improvements and not preserving the status quo.

        I enjoy the challenge of cutting a project...

        This is not a problem with the magazine for my issue.. It is a problem with the book having resized the drawings without giving the actual size.

        I do again apologize for my post.. I cannot use the right words to explain it.. so maybe someone should just remove the post....

        Reading these replies, I am still trying to figure out what the problem really is. I haven't noticed changes in how they publish recently and I don't think I ever had trouble making copies of of the patterns I want to cut.

        How did you copy the patterns 10 years ago? What has changed?...

        I am very glad to hear this and that Fox will look into the issue. Hopefully, they can do some things to try to make it easier to copy patterns.

        First I didn't mean to stir up a hornet's nest. Sorry for that. I will share that Kaylee Schofield reached out to me after my post (not sure if this forum or Facebook. From my past experience with her, she cares. I do believe she will address this issue. I do not think she is the type of person...
