Rick's Wood Gear Clocks

The "Trainer" Clock Plans



In Rick's own words, he says, "The Trainer" was designed for the beginning clock maker in mind.  It is the simplest form of a clock that actually keeps time.  It's fun to make, too!"

The plans are "full-scale," ready to use as cutting templates, so you only need to tack-glue the templates to wood and cut them out!  It's that simple!
