Clockmaker's Wheel-cutting Engine

SOLD: Antique clockmaker's wheel-cutting engine (22" x 12") complete with a range of cutters mounted on a solid wood board. The dividing plate is 12 inches in diameter and has 43 rings of detent holes. The cutter arbor can be angled or set level and be moved either up and down - via one lever -  or in and out via another: the result being an ability to cut straight or angled teeth. This is a versatile machine that would be either genuinely useful in a clock workshop (especially where large wheels up to 5.5 inches in diameter need to be made) or as a fine display piece in the window of a clock retailer. Very heavy, it stands 22 inches high so would be best collected.  £2750
