Publisher Comments:

If you would like to leave your name on something of lasting value, make a clock.

Most clocks will run for several hundred years with minimal repair. A mechanical clock capable of keeping time within an accuracy of 1 or 2 seconds a week can be made in a basement workshop with little more than a lathe and a drill press. Such clocks have a charm and prestige that no $5 quartz clock can match, even though the latter may be slightly more accurate.

This book will take you through the construction of a typical clock, describing, as they are encountered, those techniques of the clockmaker that differ from, or are seldom used in, model engineering. Specialized tools, virtually all of which can be made in your own workshop, are also described as the need for them arises. This carefully written book is packed with information and clear explanations of the "how" and the "why" of a line of activity that promises endless variety, challenge and fascination. The author is a full time professional clockmaker, recognized by the British Horological Institute.
