Striking Clock Repair Guide uses the author's time-tested method of presenting detailed illustrations and step-by-step setup and repair procedures for clock mechanisms. The subject here is the striking clock. Just look at the movements covered in this book: American count wheel mechanisms by Ansonia, Seth Thomas, Ingraham, New Haven, and others; French count wheel and rack strike movements; English bell strike grandfather movement; German wall clock with count wheel strike; Hermle 130-series strike; and four different ship s bell strike clocks. There are two bonus features covering the making of hand-wound brass wire springs for strike arbors and a bending tool for adjusting strike levers. The easy-to-use 8-1/2 x 11 format opens flat on the bench. The clear writing and 108 illustrations make this 90-page book a must.
