    Default Clockmaking Links ....

    Hello, over the last few years I have been collecting a number of clockmaking links and resources. I have posted them on one of the model engineering forums I often visit but wonder if thay may be of interest here:

    Hope this is OK, but I`ve so many clockmaking links now that I`m getting them mixed up! This will allow me to share them with you and also organise them:

    The three articles which you attribute to Dave West were actually written by Dave Creed. They were posted on Dave West's site.

    You can see Dave Creed's name internal to the articles themselves.

    Unfortunately your forum doesn`t let me go back in and change that but if a mod can then please do.

    Thanks for that correction.
