    Now that sounds interesting Bill. I've been fascinated by both the lasers and organs the folks have done around here. That sounds like a great project.

    Welcome Bill. It will be interesting to see your progress on the Topsy. Be sure to take a lot of photos and keep us posted. Where are you located? Always good to meet other organ grinders. Clock looks great!

    Hi Bill,

    Welcome aboard.

    I like the clock - that is great.

    I have not really used my machine yet. I have some intense pre-retirement work around the house going on. I do hope to get some activity on the machine when it starts getting cold outside.

    I do hope to see more of your stuff as you go along.

    Some food for thought. You may think about making clock kits. Many builders give up after trying to make wood gears on scroll saw.

    Welcome Bill thanks for sharing your clock. Cool and mesmerizing to watch the video always cool to see gears with a purpose moving.
