Thank you for the invite to the group.  Residing in the USA there is not much local activity in Synchronome collecting and restoration so I decided that building a Synchronome from scratch would be a worthy and interesting project.  I have not done much on the project lately but did manage to build a gravity arm, solenoid parts, turn a pendulum bob from cast iron, acquire invar rod and a working synchronome slave dial.  I am now waiting for a resurgence in my interest level (too many other competing projects and hobbies).  Maybe joining this group will help me restart my Synchronome build.

Steve,
I'd like to maintain the scratch built theme and I have already purchased the steel for the back plate so will continue on with my own design.  Thank you for the offer.
I am sure I will be back here looking for help as I attempt to complete the build and get it running.
