  • John Nelson clock Auction result

    I donated the John Nelson clock that is pictured in the magazine to my church for our annual Harvest fair live auction.
    I was very pleased with the final bid of $275.
    I am not pleased with the clock movement that I used and would like to replace it with a better quality brass and glass face one that will fit a 3" hole. Any suggested sources?

      Rolf, I know you don't track all your time, but just curious, roughly how long did that project take?

        Congrats on the auction results. I trust the winner was quite pleased!

        Where did you get the original insert? I didn't see the source listed in the article.

          Since I cut it for the magazine I did track the time. From wood prep to final finish it was 15 hrs. I had to resaw and plane a big slab of real mahogany for that project.
          Bill I was unable to get the recommended insert from Klock kit as it was out of stock so I got one from Sloans. It is a good movement but I think it should have a glass and brass one.

              Rolf, very handsome looking clock. Check with Cherry Tree Toys They have a good selection of inserts.

                Well done on the auction Rolf.
                I agree with you, that good quality work deserves quality fittings.

                  After totally over-thinking this, I have decided to go ahead with the Micro Mark Saw. It will enable me to do everything I can imagine in my limited space and budget.
                  I thank everyone for offering advice, and I look forward to receiving more. As soon as I get it and set it up, I will post pictures...

                  Figured it out. The photos were Live and I had to edit them. As you can see, we were quite lucky they didn’t come crashing down in a storm. The last picture was a 2 trunk tree. My son already split a truck load today.

                  Next project, the roofer next week. Yippee....

                  Betty, I just tried a test, using a standard jpeg file. I clicked "upload attachments", then selected the photo I wanted to upload, then double clicked the photo, and it uploaded without a problem. Go figure!

                  When I try to upload pictures, why is there an X next to upload attachments? I hate computers.
