Finishing up some of the clocks I have been working on… Mission Style. Miss placed one set of hands…. I know they will show up, right after I buy another set. :-)

Where did you get the clock mechanisms and faces from? I have been thinking about doing a clock similar to this but the mechanisms here will break the bank. My sister lives in Georgia so if it is local I can organise something.

Cheers

Very nice…...and I’m on to you.
Don’t think that you can pull the old….”lost a set of hands, have to buy another pair…just after I purchase another pair the lost hands are found so, oh well, I guess I have to make another clock now” trick.
I invented that trick my friend. Buy the way, have you seen my table saw? Somehow I mis-placed it.

Nice batch of clocks…..like the design.

The clock with no hands could be a gift to someone who doesn’t care what time it is!!

Great job

Nice clock cases.
Keep looking for those hands. The shipping for just a set of hands will be more than the hands cost.
