Making a part to fix a clock!
I’m always looking for practical ways to use my 3d printer. Especially because I can make almost anything with it, and I always find myself lost in ways to use it.
So, when a customer brought a small crystal clock in for service, I took the time to figure out what was wrong…
First, the clock movement, (really a small watch movement) did not work. In addition, the clock that fits into the crystal is held in place with a small plastic ring. Because the customer dropped the clock, the plastic ring was lost.
So, the bells went off, and I knew that I could replace the movement in the clock, and then, take a few minutes to design and print a new plastic ring to hold the parts together… Here is how I did it… enjoy the video..
NOTE: I did the voice over for this at midnight, and I was really tired… I apologize for the monotone voice, as though I might be falling asleep… I’ll pick up the pace in the next video…
what did I use to do the repair?
