MacArthur Number 2

Completed in 1991

I cut and polished the ruby bearings at each end of the escape and pallet arbors, and mounted them in plate bezels. I cut, mounted, and polished the saphire pallets. It has a high numbered train with hardened and tempered pinions. I made all the parts to the movement except the weight cable and the glass mercury jar. The case to this clock is walnut, with curly walnut panels.


The movement from this clock won First Prize in the NAWCC Craft Competition, Single Train Movement catagory, at the national convention in Denver CO, 1991.
