    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.

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

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