  • 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.

                  There are a lot of good points brought up here. Some may be easy to correct, others not so much. As far as Fox Chapel replying to this thread, I am trying to imagine a response that would not have made at least some people upset.

                  As far as the pattern size in the books, I believe the physical...

                  I often resize just to fit the size of the wood I have on hand. I agree this is a no win situation because of the various software, hardware differences plus the skill level of us, the end users. Even providing the patterns in a digitized format will no fix this because of the reasons I already mentioned....

                  John your original post is a valid question. It is a simple thing to put in the original scale assuming that it was on the original drawing. As a minimum the size of the material required can be stated, although that has been a confusion for folks that have built the clock projects. I field a lot of...

                  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.
