WTH !! That thing’s crazy!! Is it an actual clock ? Does it tell time?
Whether it’s an actual clock, or just looks like a clock, that thing is cool. I assume you had some kind of template or jig to cut the gears ? Kind of amazing. And it looks beautiful too.

Coloradoclimber – Thanks. It is a real clock. Took me 6 months to figure it all out and build the jigs to create the gears. I sell them now!
Russel – I designed M3 from the ground up. This clocks sits in the Rochester Museum and Science Center now and lots of people have asked for plans. The plan is in my head! Time to learn ACAD!

Beautiful job Max. I like the weights. great use of different wood. Is it accurate?. How many hours did it take?.

Grumpy: Thanks. It is accurate to the minute. It took about 1 month of nights and weekends to complete it.

Fantastic work! I would be wiling to bet that there was even more work in the jigs to produce this than in the clock itself. By the way, we are neighbors – I live in Webster!

Mark Mazzo, You’re right. The jigs took the better part of six months to perfect and I’m always making changes or new jigs! We are close. I’m in Pittsford. I visited your web site – nice. I see you support GW Woods in Victor. I know Greg. He’s Airborne (82nd AB). Great guy. What’s your email? Max
