I am am artist working in New Zealand and I have an interest in valve clocks. As I know nothing about electronics I'm not going to be building one anytime soon. Also I am not in a financial possition to by a kit, so, here is my thought. I would like to make a couple of cases, and trade one of them for a clock. I'm taking about really exotic cases, not just boxes.
e.g. steampunk, coggs, acrylic tubes,etc.
The way this would work is you send me the dimensions of the clocks, I make the cases, i send you one, you send me a clock. I would like to do this as an ongoing thing.
Ok 17 people have looked at this and no-one has anything to say.
Right... So I didn't specify that I am willing to send the inclosure to you before you send me a clock, this is how confident I am that you will be happy with what I do.
I am really interested in being invoved in this, and I think I have something really special to offer.
That happens a lot on this board. And yeah it can be frustrating. Don't take it personally.
For my part, I'm not ready right now to participate in a project like you described. Maybe later. I'm not building any more clocks until I'm done with certain more pressing issues that are taking all my time. Clock making is only a hobby, not a profession, for me so it gets only my spare time and spare money spent on it.
I did go look at your Facebook for about half an hour though. I like your work.
Look into it later when the dust is clearing off the crater.
