One of the most rewarding aspects of designing and producing our clock kits and plans is hearing from you, our customer.
It means a lot to us to know that you have enjoyed making your wooden gear clock.
We really appreciate it when our customers take the time to share their thoughts with us.
"My Dad made your Ascent clock. When I was a child he made many clocks, and he and a friend use to collect antique clocks. Anyway when I come to visit him on the weekends I love to watch your Ascent clock run and hear the slow relaxing ticking. He told me that he learned more about how clocks work building your clock than all the other clocks he has made."
"I jut wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed putting the Serpentine clock together. I have no woodworking experience and so I was a bit apprehensive. But your kit is superb."
"Thank you for your great clock."
"I ordered the Ascent clock kit a few weeks ago, and I thought I should write to thank you. I have just gotten the clock working (I'm still fiddling with the adjustments), and I have thoroughly enjoyed putting it together and getting it working. I am fascinated by mechanical clocks and have always wanted to build one, but being not sort of metal or wood-worker, I never thought to do it. Your kit was absolutely ideal. The instructions were very easy to follow, and I was able to get the clock working very quickly and with very little fuss. Also, I have to say the design itself is wonderful. As I was putting various pieces together, I enjoyed realizing how elegantly you used some very basic parts to make things work. There were several 'oh!' moments. If someone had said I could make a clock out of plywood, a couple of dowels, and some various oddments, I wouldn't have believed them. Anyway, I just wanted to say I have enjoyed this very much and now have a lovely new clock in my house. Thanks for selling these kits!?
"My Ascent clock kit arrived about a week ago. Very nice kit. I enjoyed building it."
"Thank you so much, I think it's really cool that you are so helpful and responsive. "
"The clock looks great and I've had a great time."
"I wanted to share with you that I've been able to get my clock running and keeping accurate time. It was actually less work than I had expected and it is an absolute pleasure to stand back and admire the final product! Thanks again for creating such a great plan and offering it to the public!"
"I have at last finished my clock and am very pleased with it. . . . I can truly say that I am most impressed with the quality of the kit, the fits of all the parts were excellent. I was particularly taken with the quality of the interference fits of, for example, gears on arbors and the lighter fit of hands to arbors. The instructions are excellent, clear & concise."
"A while back you had asked for feedback on your latest kit [Tranquility]. At the time I hadn't started it. It is complete now and is surely a conversation piece with anyone who sees it. The kit and instructions were great. . . . All in all a great looking piece, everyone loves it. . . . This was the second kit from you, I have the Legacy as well. Thanks for another satisfying project."
