Thread: Unique clock

  1. #1

    Default Unique clock

    I am working on this clock for a customer. Do you notice anything unusual about it?

    Very nice looking clock. Love the motif.

    I had to look it up. Those darn kooky French. Lol. I was unfamiliar with a decimal clock. Learned something new today. Thank you.

    Strange 10 hour clock with 100 minutes to the hour. Is that going to be 10 hours a day or 20?

    Edit: Ok, a metric clock. Love Google.

    OK, so how would you make a mechanism to operate a metric clock?

    Since a 12 hour clock is based on a 360 degree divided by 12.... If you used the very same clock works, 360 degrees is divided up into 10.... Just Interpolated different...

    Is that correct? Or am I off in left field...?

    My background in electronics began in 1977 with my first analog gun fire control computer with lots of dials and hand cranks... Used to aim the 5 inch gun in it's 12 mile range.

    What I was looking for was some sort of PTN you could put on your board place your numbers then remove the PTN. If that makes sense.

    Here is how I would do it. In the mpc, with the snap grid on, I move the whole group so that the spot for each number is at the center of the board. Select the next number click both the center hor. and ver. buttons twice each. On and off. The number is now centered. In the carving list, drag it into the group. Now select all in the group, move the whole group to put the next vertex on center. Repeat.
