17th CENTURY VERGE LANTERN CLOCK
Many clock enthusiasts have successfully machined and constructed this authentic replica of a 17th Century Lantern Clock. The design is a faithful replica of a typical clock of the period, with verge escapement, bob pendulum, and striking movement.
Full instructions for building the model were published in the 'Model Engineer' magazine in serial form commencing 5th October 1975. The article covered all aspects of clockmaking, including turning, wheel and pinion cutting, dial making, etc. A small bench lathe is required, together with a drilling machine and the usual simple hand tools.
Various items are available to help the constructor. These include the dial and dial backplate and various castings, many of which are suitable for the restoration of antique lantern clocks.
