My advice is to buy a set of George Bruno's plans for reproducing an authentic 1800s wooden works clock. He is 92 and might not be round long but he has been a super mentor to many people wanting to learn how to build a wooden works clock.  His son has a site called Torrington Clock Works I believe.  He sells his father's clock plans.  The plans are unbelievably detailed and usually run about 60 8.5 x 11 inch pages.  They contain all kinds of info on how to construct and are the perfect first step in learning how to build a clock.  If you can find the plans that Mark Tovar did of the Jesse Emory 8 day time and strike tall clock you will have your second step up the ladder.  I have many sets of such plans for reproduction wooden and brass works for tall clocks but ALL are copy righted so I can not supply copies!  I have reproduced some of these old clocks and would be willing to talk to anyone who might be interested in building one.  Email me and I will send you my phone number.  Maybe I can be of help!

General Discussion / HELP me add a winding handle to replace draw cord
« Last post by Graham on January 18, 2015, 03:01:04 PM »
I am about to build a Ascent clock which I need to encase due to cats. This will make a draw cord awkward to use. A winding mechanism would be much more practical.

This will be my first clock, but do have engineering and model making experience

Has anyone done this on a Ascent or similar?

Can anyone help with plans or advice please?

Any help very much appreciated

Faced with so many colorful color you could hold fast the early adopters of sense or just look like it? Armpit exist in the human body, usually men and women have the. Bacteria to human armpit, where it grows on the surface area, can play a shelter to protect the role of human skin, making it free from bacteria, dust invasion, Royal 'enemy' in the skin outside the gate. Another role is to ease the friction armpit when the body activity, arm movement, armpits besides pulling the skin around the room there is always friction generated, if friction is too long, too heavy, often rub their 'middle', play a relieve skin friction force to protect the axillary skin, from scratch to make it, so can not deny the role of armpit wigs. Hazard armpit wigs dye because armpit lymph rich, removal or shaved armpits is likely to cause skin infections, caused problems. Not to mention dyeing, coloring chemicals more likely to cause adverse body. Easily lead to breast cancer and then by natural dyes are composed of chemicals, these chemicals under the armpit with the pores into the body again when armpit wigs dye, which is very close to the chest from armpit for harm is very big recurrent armpit wigs dye prone to breast disease.

Causing wigs to become brittle, fiber breakage, loss of natural softness, toughness and gloss beauty. The more the number, the more serious injuries.´╗┐The election of the wig is better than face-lift pin many big face, fat face and BabyFat people become beautiful little face has been a dream. But cosmetic movement is too large, it seems that not much actual face-lift products. Well, consider the adoption change their wigs, with 'poor vision' effect to make their face 'narrow', it might be a good way to face-lift convenient and practical.
