  1. Re: Click Spring Bent - why? Rebend it or replace..how

    Yes, I agree however it's my mum and dads and they haven't done anything to the clock other than wind it in the usual way using the key!
    I guessed this was press fit in. Am I being too naive...
  2. Click Spring Bent - why? Rebend it or replace..how

    Good evening, my parents have given me a nice Comitti of London clock to look at as they couldn't wind it. I thought the mainspring had gone but it's actually just the click Spring bent back, so not...

  9. Re: Building Dr Woodward's Gearless Clock - Wilding by C.Raynerd

    I moved house and pulled the clock down and have just reinstalled it. I`m posting to see if anyone else has built this clock - I`d be interested to know how you have installed the motion works to...
  10. Re: James Ferguson's mechanical paradox orrery

    I`ve built a Perspex test cage and very pleased that the gears turn super freely! Need to cut it in brass now and tidy up the parts a little.
    No music to the video as requested - hope that is...
  11. Re: James Ferguson's mechanical paradox orrery

    I have been massively distracted over the last 2 months as my ISEL CNC machine has dominated all my time. That said, it is going to be put to use in cutting the engraved ring for this orrery.

    I've cleaned and inspected the bed and I think the problem lies here.

    The bed in my opinion is too complex in its construction. It is a single sheet of thin brass with lots of additional brass...

    Images attached upside down!

    When using images directly taken from the ipad, looking 100% correct on the ipad without ANY editing, when I attach them to the forums, they appear upside down!

    Any reason why??
