Clock lovers, collectors, repairers, or anyone with a timepiece back home that's moving too slowly, speeding up, or come to a grinding halt: if you want it to work like new, here's a wealth of information of diagnosing and correcting faults in clock both antique and modern. Not only does this all-inclusive manual have detailed descriptions of repair methods, but it contains alternative techniques for the less well-equipped shop and the inexperienced, as well as over 250 of the author's excellent drawings and plenty of beginner's tips. Coverage of lathe work, cleaning, brushing, pivoting and mounting, replacing or preparing an escapement, train faults, gears, suspension, crutches, striking and chiming work, lubrication, assembly, and testing make this an invaluable asset for every clock repairer's bench.
