  • Rose petal Clock

    http://scrollsawvideo.com/2010/06/

    Hey all, I am making this rose petal clock and I have a question. Where can I find clocks like this one pictured to buy for my scroll saw project??



    I repaired your link as it was not working.

    Looking for clocks try Sloans woodshop. Or wooden teddy bear or klockit.

      Mike has it right! They are called "clock inserts".

          Thank you so very much! I have one more question

          I am working with Baltic Birch plywood 12" x 12" to build this clock. It is 1/2" thick and that website does not have clock inserts for 1/2" thick wood....Do I have a problem or can someone help me out further on this matter?

            If the wood is too thick.....No problem get a forstner bit the size of the clock insert and inset the entire insert a little to make it the right thickness. If you don't have a forstner set the right size you can do the same thing with a router or if all else fails use a mallet and chisel.
            If however the wood is not thick enough, just add a small backer piece on the rear of the clock.

            Let us know how it turns out pics are always nice.

                  Thanks for cutting out my design. Which mini clock are you working on? Please share when you complete it.

                    This is the clock I am working on...unfortunately I just do not feel like my first attempt went well simply because I do not have a pattern. I print the picture out and change it to a transparency, where then I trace it onto my wood from a projector....It is hard to get precise lines and I am just frustrated with this a bit.

                      EMC008.....The way you are getting this pattern is illegal and immoral. You just admitted that you are copying a copyrighted pattern. I design these patterns to pay my bills and expenses. It would be much easier and less time consuming to go ahead and pay a couple of dollars for the pattern. If you are having money issues, please inform me and I will send you the pattern for free.

                        Karl Taylor, please forgive my ignorance of this issue of printing it and drawing it and scrolling it. I did not know this was illegal to do. Immoral? Not one bit seeing as I was unaware and have admitted to being ignorant. I would love to have the pattern for free, money is extremely tight seeing as I am a recent college graduate who cannot find a teaching job whatsoever and I have alot of loans to repay to good ole Uncle Sam.

                        Also I found the actual pattern on the internet to print out which I did, the picture I posted was just a representation for y'all to see what I was attempting to make. The actual pattern which I printed out I then turned into a transparency, and copied it from an overhead projector. But thank you for pointing these facts out to me so that I may avoid jail.

                          Not a problem, just send me your email address to [email protected] and I will send you the requested pattern. You are honorable in realizing the mistake and I commend you for it.

                          Please, if you found the actual pattern posted on the web, tell me where you found it and I will investigate. When I find the resource I promise to let this forum know who is posting copyrighted patterns from designers. All of us need to help each other out and deal with this the best way possible.

                          One rule that I try follow while surfing the net....Someone's website is no different than someone having a brick and mortal store. The owners get frustrated when items are 'borrowed' without consent.

                            That is very generous of you Karl. I wouldn't think three dollars would be that hard for someone to get, i just never think that way. It is good of you to understand and help this poor college grad out. I know how much work goes into designing and making those patterns.

                              Sorry I can't be as great as y'all and have money everywhere. I am sorry I choose to stay a "poor college grad" and not try to better myself. Forgive me for being the pits of the earth. I am glad you are a star with gold adornments everywhere. I'm even glad that your sh** smells like roses. Thank you for helping me see the truth.

                                At the time I thought "Ah, spit!" (or words like that) and just threw the blade in the garbage. It was the #5 size blade. I suspect it would cost more to have it done than the cost of a new blade. The owners manual is not very helpful, the wording is awkward, having been 'translated' into...

                                The brazing process doesn't look too bad. I have seen the welders built into the industrial bandsaws, so out of curiosity, I looked that up and that process is pretty cool to watch also, though trying that on something this small would probably light the whole thing up....

                                Jo, I did a bit of research on the web, and there are lots of videos of people silver soldering broken blades. In hindsight I remember I had made a jig eons ago to do just that, when I still had a small Craftsman bench top three wheeler....
