  • 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

            wipe on poly and tack cloth
            by dwssr2
            Question, when sanding polyurethane in between coats, using a tack cloth, is it ok to wipe on poly while the project seems tacky or should a person wait a few hours to let it dry?
            How necessary is it to sand between coats of polyurethane? I am sure people have a lot of different opinions and...

My sealife puzzle is purchased by older people due to its complexity but - if they leave it laying around and a child gets a part and chokes, is that my responsibility or theirs?"...

            Don’t forget to carry insurance if you sell a lot. It’s a necessary expense and a good "silent" partner and hope it stays that way. Where does the responsibility of the maker of an item end and the responsibility of the purchaser begin? My sealife puzzle is purchased by older people due...

            I was afraid some of my puzzles would not pass the test, but they did.. (I have some that I sell that would not (they are from the magazine) so I am not going to make them for sale anymore as I am worried about sales of those.. Maybe the magazine should have a statement of warning of small pieces if...
