    Was lucky enough to purchase one of these several years ago, and then tried to reorder 5 more.

    Unfortunately, the maker informed me his days were numbered with a swift cancer and was never able to resume making these.

    I believe he passed away a month later.

    How many of you folks have one of these?

    TGT12: It is a light plastic, looks like it was an air-formed process and is attached to a nicely finished wooden back plate.

    It was well made.

    I tried for the life of me to be politically correct in contacting the family of the deceased, but they evidentally did not want to continue the busines,s or were not involved at all.

    I wanted to purchase the tooling, etc. to continue to make these. They never ever got back to me. I did make one contact via phone, but they were not interested.

    The gentleman who made them was really a great guy to deal with, but, as I mentioned above, he told me his days were numbered and he was just trying to finish up his paid orders. I had to admire him for that. He did not live much longer than a month or two after I got the clock. I had ordered more, but the daughter was trying to tie up the businesses responsibilities and close the doors.

    Have you thought of contacting White Flyer and seeing if they have any large plastic targets as promotional items or such? Possibly they do and all the previous person was doing was just putting a clock works on that item.

    Good idea... Phil at White Flyer may be the way to go. It's pretty easy to add the clock harware.
