Repairing Antique ClocksBook - 1993
Aimed at the antique-clock collector with a practical bent, this book reflects both the aesthetic and mechanical aspects of horology. The most readily available types of clock are considered in terms of their appearance, construction, value, and how good a buy they may be for the amateur with limited resources. The book then discusses the various tools and materials needed by the clock-repairer. The two principal types of clock - weight-driven and spring-driven - are described, and there are sections on dismantling, cleaning and re-assembling a clock, and on setting it up so that it will function reliably. An alphabetical list of the more common repairs in included.
