About This File

This is a scanned document of the now defunct Workbench Magazine of this era. Permission was granted by the new Workbench Publication for The Patriot Woodworker community to copy and use the old Workbench Magazine at our pleasure, and for free distribution and re-use.


In this unusual "skip-second" clock there are two notched wheels that do not mesh, but which actuate each-other with energy created from a swinging pendulum and a weight.

Hi John, This upload is what lead me to The Patriot Woodworker.  I was doing a web search, hoping to find a pdf of this article.  Back in 1967, in high school wood shop, I started making this clock, using my Grandfather's copy of Workbench Magazine.  I never finished the clock, but still have all of the parts.  I hope to get some time to complete it, among my other activities, but have not yet located my old copy of this issue.  I have downloaded the file here, but cannot locate the rest of the article that DeafJeff requested.  Did you ever upload the rest of the article?


By the way, I think it is a terrific site that you created here.


Thanks, Bunsen

Interesting no gear wooden clock. Are additional pages of the plan available?

Response from the author:

Hey Jeff, thanks for your interest, I reviewed the clock plan, and by gosh you are correct, there are more pages to this one! I will get a revised edition up later today, and I'll message ya when it's ready, sorry about that! :)
