Gah! You drive me mad, freitas! I want to favorite EVERY SINGLE THING YOU PUT UP HERE but I don't want to clutter my favs.

It has been incredible watching you do your thing from the first couple clocks I saw in your gallery.

Do you need to enlarge/change the internal mechanics when you make hands as long as these? I don't really know anything about mechanical clocks; it just got me wondering, because it seems like there would be quite a bit more inertia/momentum to them. Regardless, it certainly looks awesome.

So far, as long as the hands are balanced the motor seems to be able to push them. If I leave the minute hand really thick in the back, and grind the long point down really thin, it should be just fine. I do however open up the motor casing, and replace the center pin with my own brass one. This gives me a more solid surface to attach the hand.

Holy cow you have outdone yourself with this design.

My favorite clocks you've made are the ones with the one big number in text... this is going to be gorgeous.

Gorgeous! I love these drawings of the clocks almost as much as the finished pieces themselves. Although I thought the warm tones of the other drawing seemed to fit a little better.

Thank you! I agree, the warmer paper is nicer. My last one was done on cream colored Rives. I think I'm going to use that instead of the Strathmore from now on. The good news is that any prints I do of these will be offset; warm dark ink on a nice warm colored paper.
