Inhaltsangabe: Book 1 Repairs enables you, for the first time, to read articles on clock repair techniques, immediately followed by the viewpoints of clock repair writers, clock shop professionals, and experienced repairers. Get the complete picture on clock repair techniques! In this ambitious series, planned to include 10 books, Steven G. Conover edits the 256 issues of his Clockmakers Newsletter into workshop manuals, reorganized by subject. In Book 1 Repairs he has updated many articles, repair tips, reader questions, and letters to the editor, and he has added new material. Topics include cleaning, oiling, assembly, pivot polishing, lantern pinion repair, soldering techniques, troubleshooting, and setting up a workshop. Two subject areas, bushings and mainsprings, were featured so extensively in the newsletter that each has its own large chapter in the book. There is also a chapter featuring clock repair questions from readers, each one followed by an authoritative answer from the editor or one of the contributing experts. This first book in the series has plenty of interesting, informative material for everyone, from the beginner to the seasoned repairer. In addition to contributions from editor Steven G. Conover, you'll also benefit from the writings of British clockmaker Laurie Penman, our technical editors, and the many readers who wrote in, helping to make Clockmakers Newsletter unique in the clock repair field. Book 1 Repairs has 190 pages of illustrated text. The book is 8-1/2 x 11 in size, and the covers are protected by clear acetate. It is comb bound to allow the pages to open flat on your bench. There are 178 photos and drawings, plus an introduction, table of contents, and index.

As editor of Clockmakers Newsletter, Steven published an eight-page subscription newsletter featuring clock repair articles, repair tips, questions & answers, and product reviews, from 1987 through 2008.
