Record Imp Vice refurbishment article added

I love the baby Record Imp table vice.   They are readily available in various states abuse on EBay and worthy of a loving home.

Read how I renovated one and added slot in soft jaws in aluminium and then via Fusion 360 modelled a 3D printed set in PLA.

Devon Sea Clock Experiences and Modifications

I picked this Devon Sea Clock in a non working condition but nice and clean and well made.  After some external support it is finally ticking away nicely but not consistently.   Timing is still not quite right but I have the Microset on it to see what is happening.   There is definitely a wobble on the escape wheel that needs fixing.
