Title: Massachusetts Shelf Clock Plans
Post by: Ronald Young on January 12, 2020, 08:20:04 PM
I am researching my next project, a Massachusetts Shelf Clock. I have Al Breed’s drawing but I also noted that back in the 2004 issue of the Journal there was an article on construction of such a clock by Rob Millard. At the end of the article Rob offered both a drawing and a DVD of the clock. I have tried several times to get in touch with Rob via his email address with no luck in hopes of obtaining his drawing. Has anyone ever obtained a copy of his clock drawing or know how to get in touch with Rob. Thanks for any help in obtaining plans for Massachusetts Shelf Clocks from any other source.

I can’t help with contacting Rob Millard, but also have Al Breeds drawing and intend to build a copy of the clock. My wife won’t buy tools for me anymore as gifts - says I already have everything and she is right - so now I ask for plans. I got the plans for Christmas this year (well, last year now).


If you haven’t seen this website, Ive found interior photos of period shelf clocks available here: [size=78%]http://adamsbrown.com/wordpress1/antique-clocks-for-sale/shelf-clocks/aaron-willard-boston-c-1800-kidney-dial-massachusetts-shelf-clock/ (http://adamsbrown.com/wordpress1/antique-clocks-for-sale/shelf-clocks/aaron-willard-boston-c-1800-kidney-dial-massachusetts-shelf-clock/)[/size]
