That's a nice looking clock, Rich!  Did you design any of it with Gearotic?  How did you cut those gears?

The escape wheel, I cut out on my cnc mill using mach 3. I now have a Fellows gear shaper, but back when I started this I didn't, so they were all cut one tooth at a time with a wheel type cutter and the dividing head. I like to use the Gearotic program to easily get  o.d.'s and center distances . I have a hard time generatin g a g code in Gearotic, so I usually design a gear and import it to my cad/cam where I can easily get the g code. Just cut out some triangula r gears out of starboard with a 1/16 end mill 1/2" thick--made three and didn't even break an endmill!!!!

Very nice looking clock.  I like the escapemen t.  And those solid brass end plates must have cost a few coins.

Fellows gear shaper ... I have a hard time generatin g a g code in Gearotic

I'm jealous Smiley .  While I don't have any realistic need for a gear shaper I'd still like one to play around with.  What model Fellows shaper do you have?  Got any pictures or video?

I did manage to make my first chips on the 1950 Delta metal shaper a couple days ago, at least, starting with squaring up an around 1x2x3" chunk of steel.  A long way from gear shaping.  No original dividing head with it, but hoping one of the imports is in my future.

Art or somebody here might be able to help you with fixing g code generatio n

I enjoyed watching your video.  Your clock has such a strong sense of the pragmatic - its hard not to like it. 
Thanks for sharing.
