There are a number of model engineers who have an interest in building clocks as well. The magazine Engineering in Miniature is currently running a construction series for a regulator clock. The current issue has the second article in the series, which describes cutting the wheels. I’m hoping to tackle the project myself. My understanding is that at one point it was common for watchmakers to build their own regulator at the start of their career. This was not only a show of skill, but also to serve the practical purpose of timing watches.
