  • Scrolling a mini wall clock

    Since the wood is only 1/8 in. thick, do any of you have any tips I should know before sawing and putting my mini clock together. The wood seems awful thin to hold when you glue the sides together.

    Can you post a picture or copy of the pattern? It will help with the reply.

      size all your joints with a 50/50 white glue and water and let dry, then you can use less glue on the final glue up and eliminate most all of the squeeze out plus it will grab and hold better

        Sometimes in situations where there isn't a lot of glue surface, I'll use a gel CA glue (think super glue).

          I agree with Bill, I use CA with an accelerator. Clock assembly can be challenging.

            Boredom has probably lead to many a great idea, invention, etc. throughout life. I too like this concept of mixer pieces storage.

            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.

            I enjoy the challenge of cutting a project...
