This was one of my favourites

A C1890 American Ansonia. Single strike on a gong.

Was a wreck when I bought it. But with a bit of TLC ---->

Here's one of my all wooden geared clocks.

Built this from a kit I bought on eBay.

Yep, the gears are heat treated bamboo, and yes they are very hard and very brittle so can break if you don't handle it carefully  :oooo:
