John Wilding, FBHI
John Wilding's interest in clocks began in his schooldays after reading the section on horology in the Encyclopedia Britannica. Visits to the school clock (strictly out of bounds) which was a fine Thwaits and Reed striking movement responsible for the governing of the school's activities, and the reading of books, all stimulated his interest. World War II claimed him for some five years, and after that he married and went into agricultural engineering. He used a lathe in that business and realized that with this tool he could make a clock. John Wilding's shop in Sussex, England John was elected a fellow of the British Horological Institute in 1986 and was awarded the Institute's Barrett Silver Medal in 1998. Johns books are published by RiteTime Publishing Ltd, 18 Woolmer Way, Bordon, Hants, UK GU35 9QF. A complete list of the books he has written follows the photo section below. Here are some photos of John Wilding's clocks: (Click photo for larger image.) 8-DAY WEIGHT DRIVEN WALL CLOCKThe first clock in John's "How to Make.. series some 30 years ago. John has since updated his plans to include two motion work gears outside the frame together wih an hour hand and dial so it can indicate time. John has included a grasshopper escapement, which is ideal for a wooden clock, together with an automatic winding system. John sorted out a couple of problems with the original design in his improved version. This relatively large movement is capable of driving a single exposed dial up to 2 feet in diameter, yet John built it all on a small Myford 7 lathe. John made several modifications including a balance staff in ball races and a simplified mechanical arrangement for the drive of the hands. WEIGHT DRIVEN EGG TIMERThis is a new project by John, and details have not yet been released.
