Got a little more done this past few hours. With the back plate now ready to hold some new parts, the first one is the pendulum bracket. I cut a couple of pieces of 1/8″ brass sheet and used double sided tape to secure them together. Machined them square and started profiling them

Still together I drilled the support holes and filed the top suspension “V”, finally separating them:

I then machined up the centre piece and now I`m left here:

Wilding now says to clamp these side piece together to the centre to drill through and tap so they can be secured. That`ll have to wait until tomorrow…


I then aligned it square:

And now it sits nice and square in the top corner – the first part mounted on the backing plate!

Next onto the pendulum suspension….
