The con rod clock has been created because I bought some none flat pistons in error.
There’s a message for life when looking at on-line auction sites! Make sure that the items you are bidding on are going to be suitable, particularly when there is a £15 postage cost.
Despite this initial mistake, I’m pleased with the outcome of how these look. The basic design is to turn a base from a hardwood (Zebrano pictured) and after mounting the clock mechanism with it’s new battery, it’s then a case of getting the con rod and the clock together.
I think these look as classy as the piston clocks, and are also cheaper to buy!
