I love clockwork things. (I’ve built a couple of clocks myself) and so I am seriously impressed by the work of Chris Raynerd over at the raynerd.co.uk site. He’s only 28 and has already managed to equip himself with some excellent machining skills. Working in brass and steel, he’s replicated Webster Engines, and produced some rather nifty metal puzzles.
…and he’s currently working on Doctor Woodwards Gearless Clock.
While you’re there, check out his milling/CNC rotary axis conversion . This is something I’ve been working on myself.
…*and* he lives close to my brother in Manchester, England (+10 cred right there).
