The beauty and mystery of Victorian Steampunk design bring these clock patterns a unique style that will make your creation a wonderful conversation piece. Although it looks pretty complicated I think this type of clock would actually be a better first try at clock making as I found it easier to get running reliably as the escapement of the Ignatz tends to keep things moving as it pulls the gears along as it swings where as the more usual escapement tends to stop the clock then it is up to the gears to start moving again on their own accord.
After writing the article on the simple pendulum calculation, I had fully intended to follow it up with an article on the Compound pendulum, but as it turned out my efforts to do the calculation for this proved to be based on the wrong equations so after struggling for some time to find the right solution I finally appealed to to the many clock builders on my mailing list for help.
The reason for wanting to do this calculation was to use a much shorter ‘seconds’ pendulum in a mantle clock ie a clock that could sit on a shelf without have the 1 meter long pendulum protruding through it. The double ended pendulum allows this because when you put a second weight above the pivot point it slows the clock down so you can shorten the length to main weight quite considerably.

Before starting on making your first clock I would suggest you first make a pair of gears, mount them on a peice of wood and whilst putting slight resistance on one turn the other very gently and feel for any very slight resistance – it needs to turn reliably without the slightest hesitation – this way you will start with a good feel for how accurate you need to get the gears of your clock and can avoid some of the mistakes I made.
Mask off your chosen sections with painter’s tape, making sure to wrap the tape around the edge of the clock face as well. Whether you assemble our wooden gear clock from our everything-included kit, cut the pieces yourself from our plans, or purchase a finished clock, we guarantee you’ll love the warmth and beauty your wooden gear clock will bring to your home.

Clock 24 – was designed to incorporate the 3rd version of the Woodenclocks Escapement which now has 30 teeth and revolves once per minute, this simplifies the gearing but requires a bigger version of the Escape Wheel to enable it to work as a wooden gear clock. This month’s project, available free of charge to all VCarve Pro 7 and Aspire 4 customers is a set of wooden roller massagers, designed to help you make the most out of any scrap material you may have hanging around.

The yellow gear is pushing the green pinion, making the red wheel, also with sixty gears, move faster than the yellow one. Its intended use for schools should not deflect from the fact that any one with a CNC laser can use this design to build the clock.

This is important because one of the largest variable affecting the smooth running of the clock, is the friction in the gear train. Then sand the gears, make sure the pinions (small gears) mesh properly with the proper gear.
ROOSTER TIME BY JANET WILHELM Look for great rub-on transfers in your local craft stores for an easy way to make a great kitchen clock. COLORFUL ROUND CLOCK Use decorative scissors to cut colorful paper to enhance clock numbers for any room in your home. The gears on a wooden clock will operate under the same principles, and allow the second hand to run faster than the minute hand, which will run faster than the hour hand.
The gear train only moves once every 30 seconds or so depending on where it is operating in the gear train, so not stopping and starting every second, thus reducing the amount of static friction in the system. Notes: Any projects compatible with Aspire 4.5 or earlier are compatible with Aspire 8. Projects compatible with VCarve Pro 7.5 or earlier will also work with Aspire V8 or VCarve Pro or Desktop V8.
I really enjoyed designing this fun clock, each part of the clock needed some different features to be incorporated, the dial with its melted look was a particular challenge to get the shape to work and to look somewhat realistic, and quite a bit of Photoshop work to create the distorted numerals. Drawing inspiration from early printing presses and wooden relief type, this project simulates a random grouping of old-style print blocks in a mirror frame.

I am collecting some nice wood from a local lumber yard and will put it to good use on this.
The clock was designed with an American 18th century neoclassical style in mind to add a touch of class to your mantlepiece, side table or shelf. Because of the precision required in cutting and sanding the teeth of the gears, escapement wheel, and other parts, making even a simple wooden clock demands access to power tools and a woodshop. If your taste in art tends toward painted clowns and pink flamingos, these patterns are for you; otherwise, pass on this book. The patterns and instructions provided by the magazine are excellent and will be sufficient to enable you to cut out all of the components to build the clock.
This month we bring you yet another great free project tutorial created by Michael Tyler for Vectric. To weed out anyone not up to the task, (and presumably cut down on pleas for help), anyone looking to test their frustration threshold with one of these clocks will need to provide a picture of a completed clock from one of Boyer’s easier designs before being able to buy one from this collection. I know I would never do it. I’m not at all good with wood and hate knives and saws, but the lens is really cool and if your good with wood working, it would be neat to do!

After developing the design of the Woodenclocks Gravity escapement to the point where it was working quite accurately I had started to think if there might be something else I could do with the clock design to improve the the overall efficiency of the clocks. Avoid staining or varnishing the insides of the teeth, which could mess up your gear train. This month’s project created by Michael Tyler for Vectric is the stunning mini grandfather clock you can see to the right. If you are after a case try some clock repairers, I have a couple from a mate who is a horolagist but you will find the movements will not be in them and that is what will cost the dollars.
This project was inspired by a 100+ year-old, hand chip-carved silver spoon holder wall rack of Dutch (Frisian) origin. You could also customize the design by using different finishes, materials or carving further decorative elements.
