  • Treble Clef Clock

    I haven't made it but I have the issue in front of me and it says a 3 and a 1/2 inch clock with a 3" diameter opening ..

    Also says the clocks are avilable from Sloan's ... unless of course you live anywhere cept the US ... grr!!

      Can you tell me if it says I am supposed to blow up the pattern. I have cut it and the diameter is about 11/2 inch

        Did you use the pattern from the magazine page - or from the pattern insert in the magazine?

            I just looked at the downoadable pattern and printed it at 100% - I get a diameter of approx. 1 and 3/4 inch ... but ... when the PDF file first opens it scales to 171% which I would guess (without doing the sums!) would give you the 3" diameter opening mentioned in the magazine ....

            Maybe this is a question that BobD could answer? You could try private messaging him if he isn't looking at this thread.....

              I would suggest you check out a site like www.klockit.com and look at their clock inserts. Check the various sized ones, paying attention to the mounting diameter. There are so many different ones, it might be best to do that. If you cant find one that will fit, check a few other clock parts suppliers like National Artcraft,Schlaubaugh and Sons, Sloans, Wildwood, ect. Good luck. Dale

                I've had very good luck using the oven. The wood does soften, but with oak, that usually isn't a problem. It also darkens all the way through.

                He is a flash from the past where I show some puzzle boxes made with oven darkened oak.

                Thanks for the post. I have tried spirals in the past and had lots of issues. I need to set down one day and keep cutting with them until I get the hang of it. Part of my problem may have been covered by your number 7. Tried pine thinking it would be easy to cut but now realize the grain may have...

                I agree, a beautiful piece and wonderful cutting. Years ago, my father had Alzheimer. The last six months we had him in the VA center in St. Cloud MN. His wood work shop is still in MN. I could not take it down to TN....

                I have been using spiral a lot more lately Thanks to Charles Hand stunning designs. I have used them of and on since I started scrolling.
                They were a real challenge on my Old Delta SS350. cutting straight in and out was easy, trying to cut details going sideways was the problem because of the...

                The best tip I have with spirals is to cut straight lines backwards. instead of pushing the work piece into the blade, pull it toward you. Seems to allow for better control on straight lines (most other lines too)
