  • Finished the Depot Clock

    I finally finished the clock and it looks great and was a lot of fun. I said I would send some pictures and I will link them to Photobucket.

    I put in the lights and sound and it all works. My wife and I enjoy listening to the train on each hour and showing off the lights to friends.

    I made some changes to the construction to make it easier to wire. I took some pictures of it. Take a look and I am willing to answer any questions and a big thanks for looking. I got the prints from The Art Factory and the lumber from Ocooch Hardwoods, both were great to work with. Rich

    It looks great!! It really is a stunning project especially with the sound and lights.
    The removable roof was a great idea for the wireing. We did one last year as a club project and some of your mods would have made assembly much easier.

          OK, OK, I drooled over Rolf's pictures, and I had to clean the drool off my keyboard over yours... and now I'm crying a little bit ( not really that much) over my credit card. I've had all I can stands, I can't stands no more. I just ordered the whole package.

          Great job Rich, I hope I can come close. Thanks for posting this.... (I think LOL)

              Rolf, Thought you posted the pics from your clubs version. I know someone in the not so distant past did.

                Rich, that clock looks fantastic!
                you should be proud, and great job with all the pictures. you should write up an
                article and document all the pictures and see if a magazine will buy or just publish it?

                    I thank all of you for the great comments. It was a fun project to do. It was challenging but not to difficult. You must have a table saw unless you can cut a very straight line, and at 90 degrees. Ben12 and I have become friends with this project and we plan on meeting each other later on. I am glad the pictures showed a good amount of the construction. If anyone plans on building the clock feel free to ask me any questions. Thanks again RichB

                      Hey Rich

                      One more comment on the train clock. Top notch scrollwork and woodworking. As someone who has made the clock I can appreciate the work that you put into it and the attention to detail shows.

                      Looking forward to meeting you later this summer.

                      Ben

                          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....
