CUT WHEELS & PINIONS FOR 

16th CENTURY CLOCK

by JOHN WILDING

Wheels to be crossed out / Pinions supplied on stubs to be cut off and fitted to arbor

 1/2/3 or 4 pinions on one stub  PHOTO

This was the first in the series of three clocks to be constructed on the Unimat 3 lathe. The project was intended for the beginner and the first chapter of the manual is devoted to preparing the lathe for use. ie. grinding the lathe cutting tools, making a simple lathe tool honing jig, a tool height setting gauge, a chuck board and generally getting started. The clock employs the verge escapement and has a single hour hand. It runs for 30 hours on a winding. No other machine tool was used for the construction and all the wheels were cut on this lathe. This attractive clock is wall hanging and needs to be some 6 feet above floor level for the full period of running. 

There are 68 pages and over 220 illustrations giving full details of all aspects of the construction.                             J Wilding
