"I wanted to let you know that I received an Ascent clock kit for Christmas and I absolutely love it.  I have always had a fascination for watches and clocks and this is a perfect addition to my small collection.  My father, who collects tall clocks from the 1700 and 1800s was in awe of the design and workings of it, saying over and over "that is soooo neat!"  I have showed the clock to many people and all of them have asked me where they can find one."

"Dear Jeff, The Tranquility clock runs perfectly and keeps good time. Your kit and instructions are excellent. All my friends, children and grandchildren are in awe with the grasshopper escapement. Watching the clock run is very tranquil to me. You are a rare genius. By the way I am 85 years old."

"The clock is wonderful. . . . My 13 year old is fascinated with the clock - which was part of the reason for doing this project.  I am totally amazed that the clock actually works.  It is an elegant design.  It is wonderful that in this age of digital brute force dumned down technology - we are still able to have an elegant, useful mechanical device - thanks to your artestry, skill and hard work.  It is really your clock - and it is a fine achievement, elegant yet simple enough for the average person to assemble."

"I could see how cleverly you had designed the clock to be put together with the minimum of know-how and tools. Quite an achievement."

"Just finished my tranquility.  Enclosed are some pictures.  This was my first major woodworking project, so it took me a year.  I ended up making it from scratch from maple-veneered poplar plywood.  It's been _such_ a gratifying experience.  I'm spending at least 30 minutes a day staring at it and marveling.  Thank you so much for sharing this with me."

"I just wanted to drop a line and say the clock is great!  The laser cutting is absolutely incredible.  Awesome!!  The instructions were very clear and easy to understand.  At first I was wondering if it wasn't a notch above my abilities, but I very carefully read the book several times before starting so I was familiar with the pieces.  I can spend hours watching it.  I would rather look at it than watch TV."

"Just a short note to praise the product that I bought from you a few months ago.  I bought the Ascent.  I got it finished a few days ago and it was a pleasure to put the clock together and it works great.  The instructions were excellent.  I will visit your website from time to time to see if you have any new clock kits."

"I must compliment you on a great design job and excellent plans and instructions!  They were obviously very well thought through and presented!  By far the best I have seen."

Ronald R.

"I have made your clock gears, with a twist, my lay out and stand.  Never touched a file to it.  Runs perfect.  Thank you [for] your great clock."
