following drawings in Autocad
DXF format are a selection of the drawings used as input to CAM/CNC
systems to produce clock wheel blanks for John Wilding's English Regulator
clock. All measurements are in inches.
These drawings were used to produce G
Code in Lazycam and imported into Mach 3. The
parts were cut out in 1/16 or 1/8 in. brass sheet using a Taig CNC
mill. However, these
drawings should not be deemed universal as some constructors may want slightly
larger O.D.s so they can turn them down as they
This Web page should be regarded as under construction. At some point, more drawings and photos of the
parts may be provided as well as the G Code generated by the CAM program.
The teeth will be formed with
a Sherline rotary table mounted on the Taig mill. Due to a move and six-month
equipment is still being set up as of early 2012. As the shop is set up and
more information and photos of the CNC system will be added. A partially
complete version of Wilding's Large Wheel Clock is shown at the end of the
Collections page. Some of the smaller wheels were cut out on the CNC Taig. Parts
in progress are the collets, barrel and click spring.
