Last year I bought a nice (but gutted) oak cased industrial clock, or at least parts of it at a local antique mall. The only parts original to the clock were the case and the dial. The movement had bee ripped out and a small electronic movement with new hands was in place. I looked at replacement glass available for sessions clocks but they are all 14" wide and the lower panel of my clock is only 12" so I decided to take a stab at making my own. Rather than copying another design I decided to make something unique. I took a photo of the face of a Golden Rule coffee grinder hanging on my kitchen wall and imported the image into Draftsight then drew lines around the lettering in the image. Once complete I was left with the outlines of the letters. I drew the rectangle for the gold box around the letters and saved the file as a PNG for export to a Cricut stencil cutter. Once the file was uploaded into the Cricut software I sized it to fit the glass I was using and cut a reverse image stencil. Getting the stencil centered on the glass was the hardest part, especially since I used the wrong kind of vinyl for this project. I found out later that there is a special vinyl for painting stencils and I had used permanent vinyl - making it very hard to remove from the glass after the letters were painted. I had to cut through the paint around every letter with an exacto knife before lifting the vinyl to keep the paint from peeling off with it. Once the gold letters had dried I went over the glass with black paint. I'd intended to keep the original dial on the clock but the wife said she didn't like the dial or the gold border. I cut a new piece of 20 ga sheet metal for the face and painted it black. I sourced an 11" paper dial online for $2 and glued it in place. The $4 movement that came with the clock was replaced with a pendulum chime unit.
