Product description


Anybody who has needed to get a clock repaired will have noticed the dearth of clockmenders. Once, there was a repairer's shop in every town; now they are very difficult to find. Owners must therefore `do it themselves.' This book looks at the workings of mechanical clocks and the processes needed to care for, maintain and overhaul them. The book is written with a broad general appeal and contains all the useful information necessary for the clock owner. Novice collectors would be strongly advised to use the book for a grounding in the subject, while those who have inherited mechanical clocks - whether of antique value or simply decorative - have a real need for its advice. The explanations of technical terms, backed up by a glossary, will not only help readers to understand the subject but will also enable them to discuss it with more experienced horologists. For those who wish to go further into clocks there is an extensive bibliogaphy.

About the Author

Eric Smith is renowned for his clarity of explanation within the field of horology in which he possesses a profound depth of knowledge. Other titles by Eric Smith published by the Lutterworth Press: Clocks and Clock Repairing Pianos: Care and Restoration
