As the title states,
this is a practical guide to designing wooden wheeled clocks.
In it I describe my own personal method of designing and building
these wonderful mechanisms. There are no plans included in this
book, however, if you follow along and draw what is being described,
you will end up with your own set of unique clock plans, and along
the way learn the various methods of creating your own designs.
This book covers calculating tooth counts for various pendulum
lengths, how to draw a Graham escape wheel and matching pallets,
the two important equations for creating wheel sets, why wheel
size matters, how to create a dial train, build a frame, laying
out the wheels, finish on your clock, how to get an absolutely
perfect adjustment on your clock's bob, even how to add a strike
mechanism, with over a hundred pages of information you can use
to begin designing your own unique wooden wheeled clocks.
are no plans in this book, we cover how to create your own 30
hour clockworks from beginning to end, and explore various ways
of creating an 8-day mechanism.
