  • Wooden Gear Clock

    I am 18 years old and am trying to do the wooden gear clock shown in issue 26 (spring 2007). I copied the pattern out of my grandpa's magazine a few years ago, but now the magazine is lost. I'm looking at the copied set of patterns that I have and they don't seem to be the right size (unless the clock is huge). I must have accidentally copied them at an enlarged percent? I was wondering if anyone with the original pattern could tell me some of the exact dimensions such as the front and back frame, the bob, hour/minute hands, etc. Any dimensions will work so that I can reduce the pattern down to that size, because I'm pretty sure the clock won't work unless exact.

      The frame is 9.32 inches minute hand is a little over 6-1/2" (6.5145" to be exact). There were a lot of missing dimensions in the magazine patterns make sure you go to the Print Article Index on the left side of the screen and download the attachments for the clock. Also check out Marc Tovar's site for even more info here is the link MLT-13

            Glad things worked out.

            I just updated my older PC. The hard drive was 500 gb and eight years old. I cloned it to a one TB SSD (solid state drive). Put the cloned drive in and worked perfectly with all my old programs. The computer is now much faster. The new drive was about $100 and...

            Once upon a time ( in the 70's) i attempted bow hunting. I believe the bow had a 45 pound draw. I quickly learned that it was not for me. It takes lot of hard work and practice just to be fair at it. Good is a whole different level. I hope you do better than I did.

            So glad you are back up and running. You will be awed by the speed of your new drive, fresh drivers, and cleaned up files. Spring housecleaning!
