Not a new video as such, but there are a few bits and pieces in there you might like, from soon to be released video's. Pass it on to any of your friends that you think might be tempted.
Plenty of lathe work in this video, making the brass washers and mild steel screws for the John Wilding "Large Wheel Skeleton Clock" project.
I also tackle a problem that has been bugging me for a while - how to get a decent scratch free polish using diamantine powder. Far from a perfect finish, but a big improvement on my previous efforts at a black polish.
A spare magnetic holder, and a cool looking light.. Hmm the possibilities!
In this second episode of the John Wilding Large Wheel Skeleton Clock build, I machine the 3 pillars that separate the clock frames.
One of the most enjoyable things about making clocks, is it gives you a great excuse to make new tools for the shop... Like you needed an excuse!
Well there's no going back now...
This is the BIG project for this year. I will be making everything from scratch (except the mainspring), so there will be a feast of machining and fabricating for you over the next year. Make sure you subscribe to the channel, to follow the build progress.
