How Neat!!! What side would you put it on?? N,E,S or W? Is that a dumb question???

Is this for real or are you pulling my leg?

I like it a lot but it is probably too simple for most people who will complain they can't wear it.

Diane said...

Cool!

Dick said...

Donna - It's not a dumb question. You have to put it on a south wall because you are north of the equator. If you are south of the equator it has to be the north wall. Best thing to do is make a test-clock, take a piece of board or multiplex and put a pin in it and see what it does.

Zo is het maar net. Geen batterijen en toch werkt het.

Dick, as you are a faithful listener of Middle Ditch, I am very sad to announce that Paul Hart who plays Alan the publican has died today Saturday May 10

I recall building a sun dial when I was about ten years old, but I found that after I built it the shifting of the earth in relation to the sun meant it was only accurate once each year. Perhaps they readjust the building every few days so it stays current? Lovely shot.
