News & Views: Time for More Information

I’m interested in building the Arts & Crafts Wall Clock (Oct/Nov, 2021) and found the mechanism listed in the Buyers Guide, but the article doesn’t seem to specify the threaded post length.

Associate Editor Derek Richmond replies:
Apologies for the omission. The clock uses a 7/16" threaded post. I chose a 2-1/2"-long minute hand to match the radius of the time track on the dial. I used a 2-3/4" diameter pendulum bob, although since the movement isn’t mechanical, you could use a 2-1/8" bob for a lighter look.
