Horology

John is a keen clock maker and a member of the Sydney Clockmakers Society.

He designs and makes his clocks from scratch. Yes this means each little screw to each member or part of the clock train. From there the clock case.

His workshop is the envy of many and contains a number of CNC milling machines and both a CNC controlled lathe and a more normal lathe.

His favorite piece of equipment is a Hommel  Mill which has been converted under his directions to a CNC machine.

He is currently working on a Regulator which his friends say will need kilos and kilos of lead to drive it. It is a 360 day clock but uses small ball bearings in the train so in his words “There wrong!”.
