2020 September Meeting

10 September 2020

Design and construction of a bracket clock with astronomical displays

Adrian Garner

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.
