If you do not see the files in your Inbox then look in your Spam files to see if your email has sent them there.

I should in fairness point out that these clocks are not easy to build and can be a challenge, particularly if you don’t have all the kit needed to build them. A Scroll saw, or Bandsaw or CNC router, being at the top of the list followed by Lathe for the round bits. So please don’t be put off by this just be aware that the build is a challenge.

Finally these files are available for your own personal use so that you can construct a clock for yourself or for a family member, but they can not be used for construction of a clock for you to sell for personal gain, further you are not permitted to distribute the files either physically or by using the Internet to distribute them electronically.

Free Files

The above files are free, they will allow you to print out the drawings or parts of drawings at full size so that you can cut them out and stick them to your work piece and cut around them with a Scroll Saw to make all the parts for your clock.

If you are successful in doing this and enjoyed the process, or even if you think it would be just fair to do so, you could make a donation here to the retired old designer (me), for the work that went into the design and development of the plans originally. Thank you.

If you have problems reading the DXF files, you could try using DraftSight.

This is a full 2D drafting package available free from Dassault Systems developers of SolidWorks and Catia.

Another good 2D drafting program is LibreCad.

One of the main problems Clock builders have is loading DXF files into their CNC software. The usual problem is that the software is expecting to see an older version of the file, if this is the case use DraftSight to change the file version to revision 12. Do this by loading the file into DraftSight and then saving it again at revision 12.
