This clock has proved one of my most popular designs (the original book ran to 6 editions). The opportunity has been taken here to update the information on the material suppliers, to correct errors in the text and drawings and to include four appendices which cover gaps in the original description. Most important is the provision of a full size and accurate drawing of the frames which can be cemented to the brass sheet and used as a template for cutting out the profile. Also included in the text is a full description on the construction of an English pattern mainspring winder. This handsome clock has 'one-at-the-hour' striking. The original was housed under a Perspex cover, but I am glad to say that glass shades are available (address in the text) and the appearance is greatly improved by the use of a traditional dome. The attractive bell is also available. The construction is illustrated using the Myford ML 7 lathe but the clock can easily be made on one of the smaller lathes such as the Unimat 3. The clock is fitted with maintaining work and runs for eight days on a winding.

There are 64 pages, over 150 illustrations and a full description of all parts of the construction is given                J Wilding
