I was working on a Seth Thomas Pillar & Scroll shelf clock and chuckled to myself as I imagined how this clock came to be. Terry found his way down to Connecticut and established the first clock factory in America.He utilized a water wheel to generate power for his machines and made his movements out of wood.Surrounding cities and towns contributed not only with skilled labor, but raw stock and the machines to make clocks.New Britain became the "Hardware City of the World".

Glue took the place of solder when piecing together broken levers and solder was used to fuse anything that didn't look right to the beholder.Noble parts like pivots, escape wheels and verges were made of metal.
