I had seen photos of the Seth Thomas #2 Regulator and I wanted to build one but I could not find a set of plans. It took years but I came across a book with plans for this clock. I took the plans and redrew them to full size. Finding the movement and the hardware was another story. This is because the sources listed in the book no longer carried the movements. Finally I stumbled onto a factory in Canada that was willing to sell me the movement and all the hardware.
The movement is German, the wood is quarter-sawn white oak and it took just about every tool in my shop to build it.
