  • New Pics of MLT-13

    Hi folks,
    Thought I'd share some more pics with you. I put in a couple of big days and nights over the weekend and it's all but finished. It runs.....Not for long though. Got a few tight spots and a minor pendulum issue to sort out, but it works. I'm super impressed with myself.
    Now...it's Beer o'clock.

    Nice! My dad would love a clock like that, but I don't think I have it in me to make one. You must have to be very precise to keep time accurately.

      Looks good Mark. The MLT 13 has been on my list for awhile I guess I should get out the plans and give it a try.

      Karen wooden geared clocks are a challenge but if you take your time cutting and test fitting as you go they are usually not that bad.

        Clocks..The insanity quotant.

        Thanks Tim,
        You hit the nail squarely on the head. Accuracy when cutting and shaping. Give it a go Karen. What do you have to lose. Ply is fairly cheap.
        Might try one of Tim Detweiler's locks next, maybe his three number combination and fit it in a wooden safe door. His book has a picture of one at the back.
        We'll see....

          Looks sweeeeet Mark, congrats. A gear clock has been on by bucket list for a long time.

                The GW and the hour pinion are on the same shaft. The gears should fit snug so the shaft turns instead of gears turning on the shaft.

                  At the time I thought "Ah, spit!" (or words like that) and just threw the blade in the garbage. It was the #5 size blade. I suspect it would cost more to have it done than the cost of a new blade. The owners manual is not very helpful, the wording is awkward, having been 'translated' into...

                  The brazing process doesn't look too bad. I have seen the welders built into the industrial bandsaws, so out of curiosity, I looked that up and that process is pretty cool to watch also, though trying that on something this small would probably light the whole thing up....

                  Jo, I did a bit of research on the web, and there are lots of videos of people silver soldering broken blades. In hindsight I remember I had made a jig eons ago to do just that, when I still had a small Craftsman bench top three wheeler....
