  • 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

                  What Carole said. The lips are 1 1/2”, holds the board to the counter and keeps the flour from going off the back. After gluing them to the board, he drilled stainless screws through the lip into the board and made plugs to fill the holes. The board is 3/4” thick. Since he only has 4 large Bessy...

                  I remember Russel well. I think he went back to the days of Free4all.

                  FYI: I just completed an index of the Charity Ornament book from SSV and Birchbank designed quite a few ornaments.

                  Denny, you are correct, his name is Russell. While he may not have been here in years, he pops in at the Village forum from time to time. I just checked and he hasn’t been there since July. I would suggest that you send him a PM perhaps through the Village and see if you get a response.

                  I think his name is Russel. I checked and he was last on the forum in 2014. I had a request for one of his patterns. Fortunately I still had a copy. Anyone heard from him?
