  • 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.

    I can't help you but you might be able to order that magazine...look here on the site and see if it's still available.
    It is the Scroll Saw mag isn't it?

      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

      In God we trust, all others must pay cash!

      I don't want no bargains, they always cost me more money.

            My wife and I got the Moderna vaccine with our second shot last week. We had no reaction after the first shot but both of us had some body and fatigue for two days after the 2nd dose.

            Here in Mid-Michigan, my wife & I (both 65) got our first shot - the Pfizer one - last Sunday; with our second one scheduled for March 21st. Both of us were a little fatigued that evening... went to be early. Next day, just had a sore arm where we received the shot. Hope it's that way with the second...

            My first creation in intarsia , with a gift from my sister of that little puffin in stained glass. After couple of tests , I created this frame , as in my blue heron, and put the puffin leaving the water and waves, between rocks and with a look to his smiling rock mounster, on a beautiful sunset....
