  • Beginning Clocks

    After viewing these beautiful massive Fretwork clocks, can someone suggest a design to start with?

    I don't want to get in over my head, and end up abandoning it.

    It's all fun

      Hello Terry
      One problem with some of the patterns is that there is little instruction for assembly. If this is your first venture in that area, you might like to check out the Edgewater or some other clock by Dirk Boleman of the It uses 1/4 inch woods for most of it. That is one of the easiest thicknesses to get. I think the base has some 3/8 inch wood in it. It has good instructions for assembly. You can probably stackpile much of it. We prefer the look of solid woods--but we have seen beautifully made plywood clocks as well.
      Have fun with your project.

        I have the Pegas replacement table for my EX21. It was the best investment that I made. The best part is they eliminated the useless vacuum holes and reduced the size of the blade hole as well. Another benefit was the table stiffened the EX21 frame eliminating much of resonant vibration. It is a much...

        That's what I was wondering Betty: If these would work (larger) for hair?

        The perfect solution when I need a wider top on my Hegner. A magnetic sheet! I decided not to get the Pegas as the only reason was for the wider top and the top feed blade. After 19 years, my Hegner is still running like new and I couldn’t justify the expense. It was a “want” and not a “need”....

        Good idea Scott. Also, my daughter has long, curly hair. She twists it up and around and sticks a pencil in to hold it. I also stick a dowel in my hair when working and my hair gets in my way and I twist it up. The one in this picture would perfect for thick hair.
