    A vintage "Gadget" I would love! Treadle Wheels Clock

    This is too cool. I think I need to collect the handwheels. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k6TVtCt5T1E

    Interesting .... he says it keeps OK time but I don't see a minute or an hour hand, just a second hand. Am I just missing it?

    I couldn't see the other hands either. Far more interesting and creative than the lamps and tractors out there.

    Methinks an old key wind clock or mechanical pocket watch that keeps good time is even cooler. This is pretty neat but nobody holds a candle to the old time manufacturers / craftsman.

    KLO & Rodney, I just watched it, and at first I didn't see any other hands either, but I think at the 1:55 mark the hands show the time is 8:20, unless I'm seeing things that aren't there!
    Thanks yobrosew, that was neat!

    I see the time as 3:50.
    I believe giving what I can will never cause me to be in need.
    Being cheap is not a badge of honor.
    My heroes are working people, paying their own way, taking care of their children and being decent human beings.
