Wheels and Wheel Cutting :
Tom Hammond will teach wheel cutting to fix or replace wheels.
A mechanical clock is essentially a timer and a gearbox. Whether we are making clocks from raw materials or repairing and restoring damaged ones, sooner or later a situation arises where it would be useful if we could make replacement wheels. To do this, we need to know a little about geometry of wheels and pinions, which Tom will cover at a very basic level. Then he will show some alternatives for how one might carry out the cutting of a wheel in a relatively modest workshop. The methods range in complexity and expense from the simplest, using only hand tools, to the more rapid and precise (and more expensive) approaches with lathe and milling machine setups.
