Orrery


Orrery from Charles Boyle, 4th Earl of Orrery, for whom the first modern orrery was built, commission to George Graham.

Getting started

So I have my subscription after buying the first issue in the shops. Issue 4 and 5 arrived before issue two and three which arrived yesterday.
Let the construction commence.
Bizarrely the tools, including allen keys arrive with the third delivery, which will for me be issues six and seven.
Managed to make a start, but fell away when I required a 1.5mm key and my smallest only 2mm. Will grab one tomorrow and continue with the alignment of the celestial spheres at that time. Till then.
