Design and construction of a bracket clock with astronomical displays
For our September lecture Adrian Garner will take us through his four year project of designing and constructing a bracket clock showing mean time, sidereal time, the difference between solar and mean time and the period of the moon. The clock is topped with a “Ferguson’s Paradox” tellurian. His talk will include illustrations of some of the unusual methods needed to create this clock.
Adrian is a branch committee member and has spoken to us in the past on the topic of polishing. He is an occasional writer for the Horological Journal and model engineering magazines, is a past chairman of the Society of Model & Experimental Engineers and, when not in the workshop, looks after our branch website.
Meeting held on line via Zoom.
