This was a new, and very satisfying, metalworking venture for me being a change from
the usual workshop tooling and stationary steam engines. However, even though the
end result made all the effort worthwhile it is improbable that I will attempt another.
This, as I am unlikely to find the patience to carry out once more the very repeatative
aspects of the task, final polishing, cutting the gear teeth, etc.
I showed the clock at the 2012 Model Engineering Exhibition where it was awarded
a silver medal and the Claude B Reeve Memorial Trophy, there being no gold medal
winners in the class. The clock is to a design by John Parslow and published as a
series in the Model Engineer magazine starting in number 4322, 28March 2008
I am also including below two photographs of a different version of the clock, being
made as a result of an insperation had by my wife and made by the daughter of a friend
of hers. I think its purpose should be obvious.
