    I was able to complete this clock and am extremely happy with the design. I never thought I hand made wooden clock could be accurate, but it's much better than I though. I tracked it for about 3 hrs with a stopwatch and it was easily within 30 seconds.

    Thanks to Rolf for his support via email and kudos to Alfred who I believe generated the original design. Overall, this is a wonderful design.

    I'm not sure what the maximum posting size is, but I've attached a couple of photos so hopefully they make it through. I was primarily interested in how to build this clock and make it work, so I didn't do a thorough job of sanding/finishing. That said, I've purchased 3 more circuit/coil sets from Carveshop and plan on building them as gifts.

      I don’t see any pictures. After you uploaded did you click on the done button in the upper corner? I forget that step and they won’t post.

          I forgot to mention the 5000 watt(?) generator his brother gave him. His brother does house remodeling and lots of times people give him “stuff” just to get rid of it. Bruce had to drain the gas, change the fuel lines and some other minor things for $35 and it starts on the first pull....

          This is his $40 haul. The paint bush was never used. He cleaned up the grinder. He added up all the attachments and brand new everything would be almost $800. This was their yearly tool swap. Every month members bring things they don’t need and swap smaller items. Even scrap wood. Anything 5”x5”...

          Where are you located in England? I was at RAF Lakenheath back in the early 70's and bought my 70 TVR Vixen, which I still have. I absolutely loved my time there.!...
