    Owner built precision regulator

    My only interest in Nano Oil is for experimental purposes on the escapement of my latest self designed regulator, not for repair. Jim D. The Nano Oil I will be trying appears to be a different source than what you have. I ordered 8cc of 10w Nano oil in this dispenser by St. Claire.

The initial results were quite promising with the instant increase in pendulum arc which...

    Very nice work on the camera holder Jim. The design is robust yet pleasing to the eye. How do you trigger the camera at the pendulum swing stopping point excursion?

    Moving Bulle Clock?

    Use of aluminum for clock plates

    As Phils nicely crafted movement in the photo suggests, aluminum plates with brass wheels and other components make for a nice contrast. Another option is one could have the aluminum anodized to the color of choice. Thermal expansion of Al is not much greater than brass.

    Recommended cart or dolly for moving items from car to mart table?

    Thanks all for the cart recommendations. Good to know what others are using. Will be comparing features and sizes. The Garden Way appears to be a good choice. The 2 shelf collapsible metal cart has the advantage of compactness.
