About 15 minutes off, adjusting for Daylight Savings time. Not bad for the end of July.

Most fascinating. Is there any adjustable, moving part - silly question perhaps. Does the wall face n, e, s, w

No adjustable parts. I'm no expert on sundials, but I guess it should be most accurate at the vernal and autumnal equinoxes (spring and fall), and most inaccurate at the summer and winter solstices (June and December)

I should have checked the direction, but didn't.

But there's a problem with it...



Solar-powered, with no battery back-up.

BTW, when I was young, I once amazed my co-workers in construction, with my ability to look at the sun and tell the time down to the minute.

What they didn't know, was that my brother was standing behind them, casually signaling the time with fingers on his pants leg.
