Thanks for the kind comments everyone.
The wind time is only about 30 hours or so, I must admit I haven't checked it closely. In fact I 've already sold the clock!

I wasn't planning to sell it, my wife was very happy with it on her office wall, but when I entered it into our local craft show last weekend a man who collects clocks and happened to be up here on holiday asked if he could buy it. How could I refuse? Especiall y when he was happy to pay my asking price.

The original plans from Woodentim es.com came as DXF files which I had loaded into CamBam software, modified to suit the materials I had available and cut on my CNC router. Yesterday I spent a couple of hours tidying up the drawings and packing everythin g as tightly as possible to fit all the parts, bar the frame, into the footprint of the router for a single job and, 67000 lines of G-code and 90 minutes later, had a new set of parts for a replaceme nt clock. This one uses better quality ply than the first so I'm hoping it will look even smarter and should be gracing Christie's office wall before long.

Once I have the whole thing working there will be another video showing how I built it.
