The lead singer of the group “Foglings” saw my clocks and thought they would work well in a song he had written. It was a lot of fun doing the filming and I really like the outcome. Enjoy!

I have recently completed my most complicated clock to date. The frame is an old 1970’s end table. And there are tin toys, plastic doll heads, Chinese checker boards, lite-brite pegs and other stuff. It was a couple of years of on and off work as I was figuring out the engineering. Here is the link. It is called “Carnival of Time”.

I was filmed for a segment in the new PBS show called “Market Warriors”. They saw my work while I was having a show at the National Watch and Clock Museum this year and wanted to include one.

Here is the link: http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/market-warriors/episodes/episode/antiquing-adamstown-pa/  My segments are about 5 minutes into the show and about 20 minutes also.

I was featured in a Lifestyle section profile article in the Washington Post newspaper, back in November, 2011, which talked my show
at the National Watch and Clock Museum.  This show is up until the end of May, 2012.  I had a great time at this watch and clock museum show.

Here is a Youtube video showing my newest piece, “A Waste of Time” in action.

This clock is one of my most whimsical pieces. It took a lot of time and effort to get

that slinky moving at just the right pace. It was well worth the effort, though.

The motor I used to make the slinky move is from McMaster/Carr.

It cost me about $50 for this 110 volt electric gear motor. And this is the first piece that I used

an Arduino micro-controller. It controls a stepper motor which resets two sand timers every minute.

Reading Dustyn Roberts’ book “Making Things Move” gave me the information I needed to use an arduino for the first time.
