In this video William Porter demonstrates making a Waterbury Regulator #67 seconds hand which was missing from his Waterbury regulator #67 regulator wall clock.
This detailed demo includes:
- Type of brass material used.

A missing or broken hand is common occurrence with these old clocks so knowing how to make new hands can prove to be a valuable skill for the clocksmith.
