  • Clock question

    A question for those who have done clock inserts. I was looking at the 1 7/16 size and they come with a rubber gasket and some say they have a spring mount. Is there a big difference? Is one harder than the other to put in? What should I be looking for?
    Thanks all

    Hi Diane, I have used a lot of the clocks using the inserts with rubber gaskets. It is more like a rubber band around the perimeter of the inserted part of the clock. I have not had a bit of trouble with them. Steve

      The one clock piece I've made used inserts from Sloans. They don't carry the gasket type. The insert I bought fit very snuggly into the opening. I did use the recommend bit to bore the insert hole. I guess either type are acceptable.

        The forstner bit is not a problem and it is an opening of 1-3/8". That's ok. I cannot order from Sloan. They don't deliver to Canada. I am looking at the Wooden Teddy Bear. There are not that many places with clock inserts that ship my way.

          Hi Diane, I did get mine through Cherry Tree. I did not mention that before. Steve

            Diane - I've had some clock inserts from ScrollerLtd and from Wooden Teddy Bear. Gasket types seem fine from either place.

            WTB are better value in my opinion though since Scroller's clock inserts don't come with batteries ..

                Diane, they do have the batteries in them. Steve

                  I couldn't resist (too long since any new toys) and ordered a blacklight flashlight from Amazon--same price as Harbor Freight. Should be here Tuesday--can't wait to see all the glue spots I've missed.

                  If you google "Moradillo" you'll get more information than you'll ever need. It looks like it will work up beautifully.

                  The first picture is Wenge, pronounced WHEN-ghay or WHEN-Gii. It is a very hard wood. It’s splintery and very hard to cut. When finished, it is almost black. I use it when I need a black wood for Intarsia. I do not know anything about the other wood.

                  I have a new neighbor who did a lot of woodworking in the past but had to give it up because of allergies. He sold his shop equipment and wood stockpile when he moved here, however he kept a few pieces of fancy wood and showed them to me. The first one (First Photo) he had no idea what it was. It is...
