Post by: rcman on May 06, 2008, 01:04:02 PM
im new to this hobby, and am working on a scrollsaw magazine ooden clock.i believe its called a mlt was given to me and i anxiously cut out all the pieces and have it almost put together but need help if anyone has tried to build this clock. one major problem i ran across is i didnt have a drill press so my holes were not very accurate.the article says that one of the wheels has an 8 tooth pinion and one a 7 but looking at the plans and any pics i can find on his site the only pinionthat has 8 teeth is the hour wheel.please help , i an dieing to see it work.

The original article of Winter 2007 had corrections.  You can find the updates here:

It is essential that the arbor holes in the front and back frames be square to each other.  The arbor holes in wheels and pinions must also be squarely in the center of the parts. 

My plans show the  3rd wheel, and escape wheel pinions as having 7 teeth.  The hour wheel and 2nd wheel pinions have 8 teeth.
