    Default Recommended books for wooden clock repair for beginner

    I am going to be (gently and with a great deal of care) restoring a wooden clock. There are no broken parts, etc - I think I just need to do some adjusting, etc. Also need to find and use the right/correct cables for the weights.

    I would like to find a book or two that would help me in this effort. So book recommendations would be very welcome.

    I recommend Extreme Restoration by T. E. Temple. Buy it online at http://www.xrestore.com/ Unlike the title may seem to imply, this publication covers the basics as well. It's well illustrated and gives good attention to wooden works clocks as well as brass and covers both movement and case restoration.
