Replacement Glass for Antique Clock beveled convex with polished dimple

February 14th, 2014 Posted in All Repair Projects, Beveled Glass, Beveled glass lens, clock glass, clocks

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.

I hope to update the post with a picture of the restored clock. I have made many lens for old clocks but this is the first one with a additional polished bent and  dimple.
