THE ACT OF PARLIAMENT 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

ALL PRICES PLUS POSTAGE & PACKING

These are large wall mounted clocks with dial diameters of some 2ft. They really need to be mounted fairly high up and are ideally suited for a large hall way. Other situations particularly suited to them are Churches, Village halls, Community halls and Schools etc. The construction of the movement is straightforward and the illustrations show the Myford ML 7 being used. The whole of the work was carried out by the author on this lathe including all the wheelcutting. The construction of the case is ably described by my colleague    Jack Cox. I have included a manually operated form of maintaining work and the clock should have an accuracy of within 5 seconds a week. It is of 8 days duration and is a most impressive clock.                                                                                        J Wilding
