Chronulator chronulates your day

Posted on 30 March 2009 by John Biggs


This DIY item uses two standard dials and some odd telegraph keys to create something that looks like it belongs on the bridge of the Enterprise, circa 1801. The clock uses parts from ShareBrained and a tea box attached to some custom-engraved metal plates – actually curtain rod ends.

My Chronulator was made of a tea box, some pieces of brass curtain rod ends ( not sure of the translation ) then a piece of amarante wood, patiently cutted and varnished.

For the meters, I made the design on Illustrator, then a friend of me made the engraving on a numeric milling machine. ( Thanks, Pierre ! )

The ShareBrained kit seems to be quite easy to remanufacture to your exacting specifications so a hand-made kit isn’t that hard to build.
