How To Make A Clock In The Home Machine Shop

Chris from Clickspring is building a John Wilding Large Wheel Skeleton Clock from raw stock!

Chris: All parts of the clock (other than the mainspring), will be made from raw stock, using home shop equipment. I will also be making a lot of the tools required to complete the project, so there will be a fair bit of general machining as well as clockmaking.

These are all incredibly satisfying to watch.
