Messy work but interesting

 This is what happens if your not super careful and patient.  This is the middle hole on an antique clock's back plate . This is the gear that the hands go into. We can see that when the clock was being assembled someone kept missing the hole dragging the pivot of the gear back and forth and scratching the brass . These grandfather clocks are very well made . This could be a repair from a hundred years ago , who knows . Just a peek into the past .
