Some have a switch to stop the chines, I've got a cuckoo clock with a lovely sound to it, but luckily it's got a small mechanical switch to stop them that always gets used at night.The clock was made in the early/mid 1950's with a 1930's art deco look. Apparently,there was an art deco revival in the 1950's. I let it run down sometimes just to let me have a break from the loud 'boings'/chimes. A midday or midnight 12 'boing' chime takes approximately 1 minute 10 seconds. Bloody annoying when you're trying to talk to someone on the phone,or listen to summat on the radio!!
Edit....Just remembered. To have less decibels you can move the little hammer in the back/mechanism slightly,so that it doesn't completely hit the coiled spring type thing that makes the 'boings'.
Apparently that's a bit of an old wive's tale told naughty schoolboys and it's really not a concern. I've heard this from genuinely top class woodworkers on youtube.A plane left lying on its blade face?
Shockingly bad treatment of a quality tool.
Always, always, leave a plane lying on its side.
There's quite a few of them along the south coast through Sussex, nearest one to us that I noticed a while back went for big money even though it was in Wakefield!Money wise,i don't have items of much value,apart from sentimental value of course. If i won 'the pools' i'd buy one of those art deco apartments in Miami,or the south of France!
Me too. I only have electric. Singer 201k, 1955, in its original table. Works perfectly.My beloved vintage Singer sewing machines. My hand crank one is about 57 years old and my electric one is 87 years old. Both will probably be around in another 100 years.
There aren't many art deco buildings in Accrington...fancy that! There's the florist shop across from the hospital and that's about it...i think. Though if you travel up Manchester Road there are quite a few nice examples of Art Nouveau architecture. Then we have the Tiffany Glass museum.There's quite a few of them along the south coast through Sussex, nearest one to us that I noticed a while back went for big money even though it was in Wakefield!
