    Hi All,
    I have just finished to build my last project: a replica of the Raingo orrery and I named it Raingo-Croce ( my family name) for my replica is quite different from the original.

    Usualy in Ringo orreries ( some of them were built by other famous French clockmakers) a French movement keeps in motion the clock: I preferred to fit my replica with a skeleton clock which, to me, looks like more appropriate to the general design of the orrery.
    More detailed pictures in my site Raingo Orrery di Carlo G. Croce

    I would like now to attempt the construction of another astronomical clock The Cosmochronotrope.
    I have the original description made by the inventor Mr. Sarratt in his US Patent # 220.036 - Sept 30 1879, but not everything is clear to me.
    I wonder if there is someone so kind to send me the pictures of the re. article appeared on Feb. 1988 NAWCC Bulletin. ( my mail address: info@clockmaker.it)
    Thank you in advance for your consideration.
    Warmest Regards
    Carlo
