    Default Hermle repair books

    Hello.I have the Hermle repair service manual but i would like more detailed information on the Hermle movements.Is there a good repair book written by someone who can help simplify and explain these movements.
    I just find them so much more complex than a american 8 day movement.
    Thanks.

    Veritas,

    Steve Conover's book on chiming clock repair has a good, detailed section on Hermle movement repair, as well as several others you may encounter.

    See it here.

    Another source would be to order back issues of the CLockmakers Newsletters that deal with the Hermle movements. A search facility and list of back issues is available, also on Steve Conover's site.

    Bill C. Tipton has put together a book entitled "Clock Repair Tips, Featuring the Hermle 340-020 Movement." It ends up to be a complete introductory manual in overhauling this particular movement. It covers examination, handling mainsprings, pivots, bushing, cleaning and assembly. It also has an extensive section on trouble shooting. Another section deals with the old floating balance wheel.
    There are step by step instructions with lots of illustrations.
    I don't have any contact information, it is not in the book. If I recall rightly, I got mine when he attended a chapter meeting here in Southern California.

    The NAWCC Lending Library has it. It's good for other movements too, and has a useful section on the Hermle chime mechanism.
