    I made a quick video of how I went about making a seconds hand for a old Waterbury #67 wall regulator that I recently purchased for our home. Please feel free to add any hand making projects you have done. As we all know there are tons of different styles of hands and surely many other techniques to make them, (for instance steel hands and bluing them, different jigs, ect…) hopefully we can compile a thorough resource on this subject.
    I hope this video gives you some ideas. William

    Great job William. I have put a new post on some second hands but have only made one completely and pretty much as you have shown. Good practice for sure.

    Hey guys, thank you, it is a rather simple task but important, the real trick would be to make those minute and hour hands 🙄
    Have fun, William
