Re: Bryans Clock machine

I have had just the one beer but even given that there is no way the dial...

Thank you 13rebel, got the gist when I checked out the photos. From your description I had initially thought the V was on the bevel of the minute hand, but all clear now. MM

Re: Bryans Clock machine

Hi again, I have tried it several ways, that's why I contacted you. Sometimes the minute hand just dangles while the hour hand goes round, then neither hand goes round.
