I would like to join this (will send the pm in a minute), and I have a question.

I am thinking that I would like to make some clocks out of Vinyl Records. The cost wouldn't quite make it a medium swap, so could I offer to make more then one for my partner?

Thanks!

I actually think that would be fine!  I just wanted to make sure that it was something well made instead of something put together all slapdash. Smiley

I know that in Canada, there is a place called Lee Valley ( I know they have an online business too...) that sells all sorts of clock sets. www.leevalley.com and go to item search on clocks and that will bring up all kinds of cool stuff like the mechanisms and crazy different hands and stuff.. Or you could just go to good will/Salvation army or the dollar store and buy a cheap clock and take it apart?
