Its a good solid book to begin the study of Striking and chiming clocks.

Its a good solid book to begin the study of Striking and chiming clocks. Offers a historical perspective that is interesting, maybe not all that useful for the actual repair person, but interesting none the less. It does cover the basics and I would definitely recommend it along with a couple of others.

They never suffered from doubt, or from morale failure, or riots and strikes among the workers.

This is a work of fiction, and all names, characters, places, and incidents either are the products of the author’s imagination or are used fictitiously. Any resemblance to actual events or locales, organizations, or persons, living or dead, is entirely coincidental. Their communication was almost always brief, an exchange of meaningful data that would inevitably lead to a consensus among them based upon probabilities of success and failure, statistical probabilities of the most likely outcomes. They never suffered from doubt, or from morale failure, or riots and strikes among the workers.

Chiming clocks have been a charming way to add warmth to a home for generations. Often passed down as family heirlooms, they have captured the imagination of a growing band of enthusiasts eager to learn how to restore their clocks to full working order and preserve them in their original splendor. Guidance on basic mechanics and routine maintenance will have your clocks running and looking like new, Photographs and diagrams clearly demonstrate the operation of the mechanisms described.

Excellent book. I own about 30 books on the subject of repairing clocks; however, this book is not written to the beginner. Unless you have the experience and ability to disassemble, clean, in an Ultrasonic cleaner, diagnose problems with a movement, bush the movement, reassemble, adjust and have the movement functioning properly again, you will probably be frustrated by this book. For a beginner, I strongly recommend other books and I suggest you join the professional association of NAWCC. You will find the annual dues very reasonable and the resources exhaustive.

The book covers all known chiming clocks in great detail. The author knows his subject thoroughly and forgets that many in his audience will lack the depth of knowledge he possesses. The most glaring problem that caused me grief was his tendency to start discussing how a particular clock accomplishes a specific part of the chiming process then switches to describing how another clock using different mechanics accomplishes the same sub-task. Then he returns to the clock about which he began the discussion. Sometimes he describes the subtask as accomplished by three or four other clocks. It requires great concentration to gather a sound idea of how the task is accomplished be the design you are studying. Otherwise the book covers chiming and striking clocks in a comprehensive way and is a valuable resource for students of clock design.
