Dial and automate work

Due to the condition of the brass and to conserve the original paintwork I decided to replace both Adam and Eve using the existing ones as templates, along with Adam's new arm and to make a complete serpent and collet as this was missing. I designed and manufactured automate driving levers. Then made new driving lever to operate the age of the moon dial nags head and lever.
