Doing some research on the metal clock, last seen with it's face melted off in Edge Of Destruction / Brink Of Dsaster...

It's a metal "skeleton" clock, manufactured by WF Evans, in the shape of Westminster Abbey.

I also found some photos of a similar clock, including a very nice closeup of the clock face fitted to this particular model (unmelted).

Wow! Been looking for decent pics of a clock like this for ages - thanks.

Look at The Chase ep.4 and you'll see the clock just plonked on the control room floor -no pedestal or anything!

One small difference is that 'our' one only has one bell, it hangs vertically from a bar rather than being horizontally mounted like these. Everything else is spot on though :)

Stunning pictures Cobalt - though at £15,000 for an original W F Evans clock, I doubt I shall be buying one. The catalogue indicates the originals were 24" high so, apart from the bell, as Marc says, this looks highly accurate.
I wonder if modern (cheaper) reproductions are available.

if we had a clear illustration of each layer of the clock we might be able to build one inexpensively.  ;)
why doesn't the Guide mention them? - Oh, it's not very accurate.
Oh? - I'm researching the new edition.

But we do ;)
The templates are my work (and may require some tidying up) But a reasonable start, no? :)

Awesome work. Are you going to diagram the tower pieces too?

I wonder how expensive laser-cutting would be. Didn't someone on here have some bits for a console laser-cut?

Oh the last two... Yes I have a diagram for that, it apparently failed to upload.

As you can see, some of the curved bits are a bit rough. I would have liked to do it at a higher res too.

Hi Marc, are these plans to scale?

Cool - do you mind if I "borrow" them?  ;D

Rassilons Rod

Of course, and feel free to improve them if you have a mind to :)
