the kits components are clearly labelled and then packaged ready
for delivery. Every effort has been made to ensure it arrives
in good condition, ready for you to start assemble. The easy to
follow instructions indicate step by step your processes to complete
a wonderfully designed piece of furniture as a floor clock and
utilising the very best of German movement quality. Glass is not
supplied with kits unless you wish as to source it for you. Plain
glass with 3mm thickness is suitable for these sized door applications.
However, we can source Bevelled glass that can be included prior
to sending if you desire. Contact us for further information.
kits include the following:
components are precision cut and machined then numbered and carefully
protected to ensure the care of mitred ends. All the doors and
or decorative panels or columns are completed and ready to fit.
Easy to follow step by step instructions and exploded view drawings
or photo images make it easy to work through the construction
process. Standard sets require you to supply glass, glue and suitable
screws. A number of clamps are required to hold parts in position
prior to checking and fixing into place. All parts have been pre
sanded but may require further sanding between finishes. Your
choice of finish may include oiling, waxing, clear finish, stains
or French polishing. Which ever method you make it to suit your
own needs. The grains of our Australian Timbers ensure a good
German made 1161-853114 model, Hermle 8 Day Triple Chime Cable
Weight Driven Movement. This movement allows you to select a melody
from Westminster chime, Whittington chime or St. Michaels chime.
The melody plays at each quarter, starting with ¼ of the
melody at 15min past, then ½ the melody at 30min past;
and so on. Finally at the full hour it plays the full melody and
then strikes the number of hours. For those worried about the
sleeping hours, this movement includes an Automatic Night Time
Silencer. (ANSO) This mechanism when engaged allows the movement
to suppress the chimes from 10.00pm until 7.00am (within the correct
12 hour clock cycle) Winding is performed via a crank key through
holes in the dial face. This also reduces the amount of handling
of the weights or brassware as with chain driven movements. Polished
Brass Shells surround the weights that drive the movement ad are
place in specific positions. All of which are detailed for you.
Finally an large Polished Brass Pendulum is hung and swung to
regulate and perpetuate the time keeping process. Full details
of each movement is supplied with the boxed components.
All hardware for the timber case is supplied to ensure consistent
fit. Polished Brass Hinges, Knobs and Key Plate enhance the look
of the clock. Locks and catches enable the closure of any doors.
Adjustable levelling feet allow for fine tuning the floor clock
to a perfect level position. Some screws are supplied for these
components for your consideration.
