  • 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.

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

                  When we started out, it was 45 deg and rain. When we got there it was 44 deg and rain. By the time we left it stopped raining but was 42 deg. and windy. Luckily we are under cover but that doesn’t stop the wind. I sold 4 baskets, Sealife puzzle and a few other things. I moved the coffee grinders...

                  I thought I read you use shrink wrapped bags for your puzzles. Where do you get them from?...
