Grace Church, Amherst, MA • 1868 E. Howard Tower Clock

At some time in the past, all four sets of numerals and hands were removed from the exterior of the granite tower. Also missing were all four sets of dial gears (except the cast iron ‘brackets’.)
The church opted for four new skeleton dials and these were fabricated. Four complete sets of brass dial gears, hour tubes, minute shafts, and universal joints were milled and machined. Four sets of hands and hubs were fabricated and gilded.

All new components were installed in 2007.
