Publisher Comments:

Finding and Restoring Longcase Clocks is essential reading for anyone interested in buying and restoring a long case clock. Experienced readers will be able to undertake most of the restoration work themselves, but for the novice the basic principles are explained and advice on seeking professional help is given.
His comprehensive guide to finding and buying longcase clocks tells you everything you will need to know about what to look for, what to avoid, and their prices and restoration costs, before going on to cover the practical aspects of restoration. Contents include: a detailed section on the workings of the clock; covering the time and strike trains; introduction to the restoration project; step-by-step instruction to assessing and restoring the clock case, dial, hands and clock movement, and finally advice on setting up the clock and keeping in good working order.
