    GB skeleton anniversary clock

    Hi, I am in the process of building a full size Gustav Becker Skeleton replica. I've never seen one and would never be able to afford one if I did come across one I suspect, hence the project. My chandelier pendulum is almost complete and the frame plates are cut out ready for the pivot holes...
