Hi Dave

Merry Xmas and Happy New Year. I have been working on the clock for a few hours each day for the last week or so. My injuries finally got well enough that I felt like doing anything exept doing nothing. I have run into several problems to date. When working on the motor I discovered that the motor pinion did not engage with the first gear of the ball lift. I had to contact Dave who pointed out that the plate that the motor attaches to is upside down. It turned out it is not symetrical and I missed in the drawing where the top edge is flush with the sides. My mistake Not a really hard thing to correct. The other issue I am having is the fact that the bushings that Dave changed to are so long that two of them on the same are do not leave any real room to adjust so that the gears line up correctly. I am working on a solution for this. I have also noted that the length of the 3mm rods for the arbors or spacers are short in most cases. I ordered more 3mm rods from Amazon so that I can remedy this. I find the instructions to be lacking in clarity and details. Probably why I make mistakes that I have to fix. I now get most of my understanding from the 3D model that Dave sent out. I have built other clocks in the past that had much more detailed instructions to follow step by step. Hope all is well with you and yours. I see you are still tinkering with your clock from your last post.
