Originally published in 1914, this book aims to give practical advice to anyone wishing to clean, repair and make all kinds of clocks. Alongside the very detailed and precise descriptions, there are many illustrations that deal with everything from chimes and the description of striking works, to hints on clock making and maintenance. Its contents include: Cleaning a Skeleton Clock, Repairing a Skeleton Clock, Special Tools and Processes, Pendulums, Portable Clocks, English Striking Clocks, French and American Striking Clocks, Quarter Striking and Chiming Clocks, Turret Clocks... and more. Many old works such as this are increasingly hard-to-come-by and expensive, and it is with this in mind that this text is being republished now in an affordable, modern edition complete with a specially commissioned new introduction on the subject.
