  • Fred 50 years clock

    For the 50e anniversary of my nephew Fred, I created this clock from the back of another one , slice in 2 parts , and made in 2019.

    I added a new part to the clock with the word “ sensei “ in Japanese, which mean “ teacher or master “ which he is at his Karate/Justu school.
    Had to be very careful with the cutting of those small letters....!

    As you probably saw the hours numbers are the letter of “ 50 “ in French!

    Had lot of fun to create this one. Wood are cherry and walnut, and a piece of thin marquetry in the center, with a oil and wax finition.

          When a blade slips out, the tendency is to tighten it more. Make sure you haven't over-tightened the clamp forcing the sides apart. Most OEM clamps are made from soft aluminum so once it starts they will continue spreading and it will be near-impossible to keep the blades in place.

          Blade slippage is a function of the blade clamp holder and or the set screw and thumb screw with swivel.

          Tricia what saw do you have? Does the blade slip or it just won’t tighten?

          Have you tried to rough up the thumb screws tips? How old are the blade clamps? may be time to replaced them.
