Hey all, thought you might like my clock project! Its an open source clock, with a definite Steampunk style. I also made the faceplates in steel and copper, alongside the brass (I like the brass best).

That is very cool and unusual! I do like the etching, and the fact that it is open-source is great!

Thanks!

Just letting you know the link is missing a few words at the end of the link so doesn't work, did a search for The Volt and found it just fine.

I like the fact that you are offering it as a kit as an option.  May have to take you up on it.  Would love to make a box to put it in.

Update:
Couldn't resist.  Just signed up for the kit level.  Looking forward to it.

Fascinating project.

I also built one, plain and simple, wooden case, three meters (including seconds).
Great to watch.....

No, it has never been on display anywhere.

Except for now sitting in my office.
