    Good evening all. I have always wanted to build a wood gear clock. This is one of my current projects. Its working. Now I just need to let it run for several weeks to see how it does.

    I have to admit - those kind of clocks are most appealing. Did you cut the whole ting on the scroll saw? How long did it take? What kind of wood did you use? Inquiring minds want to know and . . . . . . It looks pretty awesome!!

        Good Afternoon. Yes I cut all on scroll saw. I used baltic burch in varied thickness'. For the pallet I used a piece of cedar. How long did it take? Well... that is a loaded question. Each gear took about an hour or two for cutting. Then I had to clean up on sander. Over all I cut all parts over two weeks or so. Then the fun began. Getting her to run took longer. As for running, I am waiting patiently for her to settle into her own rythem then I will adjust to keep near perfect time I hope. So far its been running for 2 weeks without any issues. All I have to do is wind each day.

                Congratulations on completing the clock.
                I wanted to do that one also and ordered a back issue of the mag but,
                it looked more complicated than I had anticipated so it will definitely be on
                the back burner until I know I have LOTS of spare time to work on it.

                  It was not to bad to cut. That was the 1st intricate project I had done. I am by no means proficiant in the scroll saw. My experiance is about 2 dozen projects for this past Christmas. I didnt get the gears right the 1st time. I did have to remake part of them. But over all it was pretty easy once you got the hang of it. I can say that I am improving lots on the gears now. My problem is work gets in the way of my wanting to cut more on the saw.

                      Well I started out by getting the stamps (1/2") from harbor freight thinking I would heat them with a torch and burn them in. That did a great job, just was taking longer than I wanted. So I then took rubber mallet and stamped the numbers in the wood and took a sharpie marker and colored them in.

                        Good job Ronnie.

                        I love wooden gear clocks. I have built one so far, but I cheated. Bought a kit with all parts lazer cut.

                          Linda - Here is my gimmick for the Incra 1000SE on my SS CNS. I scratched a line 3/4-inch in from the blade end of the fence. I then use a ruler to set that line 1-inch from the side of a carbide tooth on the blade. Then I line the 1-inch mark on the fence ruler to the scratch line.

                          Now,...

                          It was a tough choice on the miter gauges---based on recommendations here. I researched the Kreg and the Incra. They were pretty much tied. I let fate decide it. Went into my nearest 2 hardwood stores. #1 sold Kreg, but they were out of stock and didn't know when an order would come in that...

                          Nice puzzle. Go for the gusto---scroll it next time!! Several of the quality brands of blades make blades just for acrylics. With a sharp blade and the right speed it's all good.
