Replacement Glass for Antique Clock beveled convex with polished dimple

Friday, February 14th, 2014 Posted in All Repair Projects, Beveled Glass, Beveled glass lens, clock glass, clocks | Comments Off on Replacement Glass for Antique Clock beveled convex with polished dimple

The old glass was repaired so it could be use to cast a high temperature mold .  The mold and an old piece of glass went into a kiln to form a glass blank.

The blank was cut to size , beveled and the dimple was ground and polished.  The dimple is use to add additional clearance for the center stem.
