I was in the garage the other day, and wanted to make a repurposed item. Then it hit me, a briggs and stratton shroud would make a perfect clock. So two days later, this is what I came up with.

You could sell a lot of those at a plow day or a gt show.  

 

 

I sent you my address. 

 

Thanks!

I want one that uses a Clinton shroud.  :rocker2:

 

Or how about the grandfather clock of a Wisconsin shroud?

And the old saying still rings true, "power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely."

 

It was a good try, but I don't think you would like it.  It just wouldn't match above your scratching post.

That is a very cool idea, and it looks great. :thumbs:  :thumbs:

 

I think you set a new standard for work shop/garage clocks. I know I'll be

trying to find time to make one this summer.

Thanks for sharing that.

Great idea.  I can see a shortage of engine shrouds on the horizon.
