Hello clockman123, several members of the board have built clock cases for Vienna and wall regulators, myself included. Examples of mine can be seen at
Are you looking for advise, plans, or what?
Normally I would not respond to a thread such as this but on this one I feel I must.
I have dealt with Bob in the past and have been very satisfied with the process. I was in
need of a porcelain dial and Bob provided the only solution I could find. The end result
was as advertised, the...
I apologize for my poor photography, I think the brass reflections and color
saturation are misleading. I should have played around with the pics before posting I suppose.
All the pinions in the movement are indeed cut steel. The only brass/brass interface is in the motion works...
Here's the situation....I have a #70-24 that I need to make the correct hands for it. I prefer spade hands with no tail on the minute hand as shown in a Howard catalog. Keep in mind the movement has an integral counterbalance for the longer minute hand. I made the first one from .050...
Some of you may recall I had posted earlier (months ago) re: a movement I picked up several years ago at a NAWCC convention in MO. I was surprised to learn that it was for a 24" dial. Well, it's finally done.
This was the most difficult clock case I have built to date. Not because of it's...

I am ready to install the glass into a #70 case. Can someone tell me how E. Howard originally installed their glass? I can use glue blocks, glazing, or whatever. I will not use any type of nail since I don't want
to break the glass which was recently reverse painted.
Please keep us posted on your progress. I also have to build a case for a pinwheel regulator. I have the movement, dial, hands, and pendulum. I am finishing up a case now for a Howard #70-24. My next woodworking effort will be for the pinwheel. I would be very interested in your design, and...
Does anyone know where I can find a couple of door latches like E. Howard used on their #70. I need one for the door and one for the bezel.
I haven't had any luck searching the usual prospects (Timesavers, etc.)
Appreciate any leads.
I am nearing completion of a reproduction clock case for a Howard #70 that was originally made for a 24" dial and I know it was made in 1910. I
am using cherry and thinking ahead to the finish. I can put a finish on it (which I have done before) that will make it look aged (darker) or, I can...
Well here 'tis....
the flat spring that pushes the rack tail against the snail was bent out and not contacting the rack at all. Just the weight/balance of the rack would drop it back 2-3 teeth but not enough momentum to go further. I bent the spring back slightly so it made solid contact with...
