I have wanted to build a wooden clock for years. Just one of those things, much better than climbing Mt. Everest.
This is a clock from Brian Law, #22. It is quite complex, about 14 gears and lots of small parts. If you are contemplating building a clock, I can highly recommend his plans. They are extremely well done. He even provides STEP files that will load into Fusion 360 for 3D viewing.
Anyway, here is a shot of the parts I have done so far. As always, Aspire worked flawlessly.
Most of the parts are 9mm hard maple. The profiling was done with a 2mm and .125 end mill. The 2 mm bit surprised the heck out of me. It was from china. I pushed it up to .025 DOC and 70 IPM without breaking it.
The boards under the parts are glue ups for the front and back frame pieces. I cannot mill them out until I have all the bearings on hand. I half lapped pieces together to provide better grain orientation.
This is a really fun project. I have been working on it off and on for about a month now.
