Please post your website here so that all may view your clock collection.This is so that we can capture the clock collections at one location so that they are not scattered in several different areas and or topics. This will attempt to make viewing easier and locating a wider variety of clocks and what you like to collect. Please give a brief description of the types/names of makers of what will be viewed. Thanks Mike

Woohoo! Great idea.

Here is my clock collection website:
http://www.angelfire.com/me5/clockman/main.html

I collect mainy early american clocks. I preffer pre-1880 clocks, but will settle for anything decent that's within my budget (with certain exceptions).

The bulk of my collection is currently on the site, but there are a few (4-5) project clocks that arn't done yet. Some of which can be seen in progress here:

Enjoy. If anyone needs information on any of the clocks, don't be shy to ask me, I'd be more than happy to measure pendulum lengths, give measurments, or detailed photos if you need them.

Mike,

Is it possible for someone to post pictures if he does not have a website? I have a few I would like to post.

Good idea Mike

I love looking (drooling over) collections.

Below is mine - not complete but most of the clocks are there - all I need is the time to finish it :eek:

May I suggest that the link to your collections is incorporated into your signature as Peter and Bill have done.
If you Place the link in the body of your message it will become lost as new messages are posted in the forum.

Geocities suck they only give you one page so ive just crammed some of my favorites on but I still have a load more to add. But regardless though enjoy.

They probably would not have the bandwidth for all your clocks, Steve! ;) Very nice!
Why not glue several clock graphics together?
BTW, you probably know this, but there are quite a few spelling errors on your page...

Yeah I know I made a few mistakes spelling wise in there ages ago but, the stupid site won't let me back on at the moment so sort anything.
I was thinking same thing - just have the pictures then you click and get a big picture with a caption at side :).
Im sure most people don't bother reading anyway heh they probably feel the pictures speak a thousand words ;).

Hi Steve,

The slash at the end of your links prevent Netscape users from viewing your collection.

Thanks for sharing...

My web site is mostly watches, but I do have a section on my clocks and marine chronometes. If you click on the link in my signature, you need to follow the link to collections to find the items.

Hello Everyone... I am a new member of the NAWCC, so I'm just getting "my legs" in this message board... So, if I do something wrong, please forgive me ...

I've been making Patent Timepieces for a little over two years now. After acquiring Paul Foley's magnificent book "Willard's Patent Timepieces", I figured, "If I can't afford the real thing, I'll make them instead !" One way or the other, I was going to have a collection of these great timepieces !... So far, I've made ten clocks. I've sold four. One is in a shop waiting for a sale, and I have the other five...

One of the clocks that I've made is on the Horton's Brasses website. I will post more when I get a chance / if anyone is interested... :)

Thanks !!!

1885 Taladega (aka DRACULA!)
http://www.picpuppy.com/gothic.jpg

This clock so far is my favorite clock. It is dark and mysterious with an evil eery sounding chime. It whispers a dark past of whips, blood and chains. I plan to have it stand alone in a dark hutch with neon lights for creating mood. Even considering adding some spider webs. Above the clock will proudly display it's name DRACULA! Can't wait to show you.

1920's Gilbert Color era (aka Linda)
http://www.picpuppy.com/linda.jpg

This is Linda. She is a petite sweet ladie clock. She is from the Gilbert color erra. Currently she has a busted gear due to my stupidity. But she is sweet and forgiving and waits patiently knitting something useful. She has a pretty sounding chime and strikes the hour and the half. I plan to buff her dial up a bit and give her some glass. Hope she wont be embarassed when I put my hands up her skirt. (In a strictly professional manner of course eh hmm).

:???:? Gilbert humpback (aka Walley)
http://www.picpuppy.com/walley.jpg

This here is Walley. Walley is a bar clock. He's been hanging down at pub since time began. Seen alot of nasty sites and nasty fights. He's been slapped off the counter more than he can count. He aint got no chime cause you should see what happened to those guys. Just keep your nose down and sip your beer. That's his motto.

1929 "Hollywood" regulator (aka Angela)
http://www.picpuppy.com/angela.jpg

This is Angela. Angela is an angel. She sings on high from the heavens above. She is pure love. She use to live in a barber shop in Main. But she has always aspired to be in the operah or on Opra. Not sure. Now she hangs on my double wide mobil home wall. I blind folder and told her it was the Taj-mahal. But, she is a 10 in all aspects. She has normandy chimes and plays them on the hour and the half. It is soothing to hear her sing.

That's it...!

Not sure what happened to my fist link, but here is the correct one :)

Due to several requests ive had ive finally managed to record and post links to the sounds of my musical edward tomlin clock. I thought this would be the best thread to put it in rather than starting a whole thread off about it.

Steve,

It looks like Angelfire does not allow linking from other non-Angelfire sites.

Are you sure you are still the youngest member?

Cheers, Ralph

Some of you may be tired of seeing this clock, but it's my collection for now! I'm really interested though, and looking to add more weight driven clocks.
Thanks for all of your input... I'm learning much from you all.

Scottie,
Where in Tx are you? I grew up in Houston, went to school @ Texas A&M, then lived in Lubbock for 15 years. Been in Upstate NY for last 15 yrs.
Thanks for all of your posts!

Scottie,
Good news and bad news. First the bad news. I've heard waaaay more Aggie jokes over the years than I can possibly count.
Now the good news. Those were two I'd never heard!!
By the way, although I love Texas and will live there again someday, Upstate NY is beautifull! Lakes, trees, rolling hills, dairy farms. Winters are kinda tough, but they only last 9 months!
