Even modern clock workers need servers to store their data.
I would like to have a server that can be switched on by a winding key for clocks.
Unfortunately you can´t buy such a switch. But you can build it! :-)
The server is a tower with the following dimensions:
16 cm to 16 cm and 50 cm high.
The case is made from multiplex wood.
It is stained with black stain and painted with shellac.
