This truly comprehensive and practical new work is the first book to be devoted solely to the repair and restoration of the carriage clock, and as such will be greatly welcomed by professional and amateur alike. It describes the variety of movements found in the clocks that were produced by the thousand in France. The details of the simple timepiece, strikers, alarms, quarter repeaters, and grande sonnerie are shown and discussed here. Over 220 detailed and accurate drawings display the operation of the more complex parts and the text describes symptoms, faults, and corrections of each type of movement in turn, with other chapters on tools, major repair techniques, cleaning, maintenance, and a list of suppliers of materials.

About the Author:

Laurie Penman has been working as a clock repairer/restorer for over thirty years. He began writing for Clocks Magazine in the 1970s, later becoming a regular contributor and columnist. He began teaching clock repairing in 1980 and, at the same time, started a correspondence course. His first book (written with a co-author) was published by Clocks Magazine as a 'special'. Clock Design and Construction was published in the early 1980s and other books followed. Laurie Penman accepted the offer of a post at the American Watchmakers/Clockmakers' Institute in Harrison, Ohio, in 2002 as a lecturer and instructor.
