October 2012
Roger Little presented a talk on Horological Tools. Roger is passionate about the history of clock and watchmaking and the early tools used. There are many very attractive pieces of machinery used to make and shape wheels. These early machines were almost invariably hand cranked with a wheel or a bow.
Some of the tools on display - compasses for scribing circles on clock plates for pitching the wheels, depthing tools for determining the correct distance betwheen wheel centres for correct meshing, taps and dies for thread cutting, files for shaping, bench and hand vices, various pliers, tweesers, drilling devices and much more.
