We took these two photographs on Monday morning before setting off for Ely. This morning I'm in the middle of a pig of a job I'm doing for a neighbour on his rather nice long case clock. It looks and sounds easy enough - the hand beating seconds and its arbour has come apart. Sounds easy BUT.... it has been mended (soft soldered) twice already, so I am fast coming to the conclusion that the easier way to do the job might well be to make a complete new arbour for the seconds hand to ride on. Whilst making up my mind about the job I've knocked off for a few minutes to do a quick blog entry whilst I calm down and make my mind up. Back to the workbench now - I'll report back on progress re the clock later today.
P.s. before anyone else reminds me - yes, I know I'm supposed to be retired, but it's a neighbour, asking me to do a simple little job (tee- hee).
