    These are from the Home study course offered by the Wisconsin Institute of Horology by FA Thomas.

    "Looking for lessons 7, 8, 9 for the Wisconsin Institute of Horology Home Study Course."

    I am now totally confused! I have this course (by F.A. Thomas), but no parts 7, 8, 9 as you describe.

    Mine is a second edition, 1921, and is in three parts:
    Part 1: elementary, lessons 1-6.
    Part 2: Clock repair, lessons 1-4.
    Part 3: watch repair, lessons 1-11.
    Supplement 1: lesson 12
    Supplement 2: lesson 13
    There is nothing that fits your description! I suppose you have a different edition?

    I appreciate you taking the time to look over your stuff. I guess there are several versions of this material. Thanks for all your help. Perhaps the original correspondence course was reorganized when it was published as a book.
