Making Clock Gear Cutters part 2

In this second video of the multi video series on making clock gear cutters William Porter takes us further into the interesting field of fabricating cycloidal clock gear cutters. These cutters can be quite expensive when purchased from supply houses so learning how to make our own can be a big money saver. Also the techniques and tooling such as the radius grinding jig that is shown in the video can be used in other horological machining. If you haven’t already seen “Making Clock Gear Cutters part 1” you can read it now by clicking Here.

This second video covers:

  • Williams homemade radius grinding jig and how it works.
  • How the radius grinding jig is setup on the lathe.
  • Actual grinding of the form tool used for machining the multi tooth cycloidal clock gear cutter blank.
  • How to adjust the camera angle to make your stomach appear larger. Just messing with you William! Watch the video and read Williams captions and you’ll understand.
