This was my Original design for a Desk mounted aircraft instrument clock off a Russian Mig Fighter Jet,

As I have a blog of the full story of the build and how it came about I wont write too much here. The full story can be seen HERE, on my Blog.

Anyways, it is my original design for my friend Mr Peter G, who is a Captain in the corporate aviation world and picked up the aircraft clock in Moscow.

Of Oak and Walnut construction, using mainly templates and flush trim router techniques I was thrilled with the design and outcome.

Below is a a few pics of the construction,
Thanks for reading

Thanks Peter,
Great to get a compliment from you, my work hasn’t quite the detail of yours. As I,ve said in the past, far less patience than you.
By the way and as mentioned on the Blog. The clock works without Aircraft power, its old school and requires to be wound up by hand. It has various stop watch functions.
If you look closely can read the Russian writing. Hopefully somebody translates.

Thanks again
Anthony

Большое спасибо, Роберт, я никогда не видел своего имени на русском языке.
Интересно, играют ли они Сунгку в России?

Thanks Dick for the comment,
Yes Dowel Max did get a run, however, because the angles I was joining where not 90 degrees I had to clamp Dowelmax reference block to the Stock with third party clamps, It took me a while to work it all out. Dowelmax really is a treat. Slow yes but accurate yes. I love it.
Regards
Anthony
