ATO ATO clocks

Hi,

Maybe this belongs in another section but do any of you know good websites for ATO clocks?
Or perhaps there are books available?

I recently bought a Leon Hatot ATO Wall clock manufactured 1926. This wall clock has a second dail that I have never dealt with. Does this second hand lift off like the clock hands.

Thanks
Russell

I use a book in my repairs on ATO clocks, it is more scarce than the Bulle book, it is ATO Battery Clocks by John Locke The diagrams are a god-send.

Hans Vrolijk had this link at the bottom of his post. www.vrolijk-clocks.nl Very interesting info (in selectable languages) about the people who contributed to the development of things electrical. Gauss -unit of magnetism, Ohm- unit of resistance, Henry -unit of inductance, Ampere -unit of electrical current,... and many more. A must read. Joe

I purchased this little bass wall clock at the same time I bought the #3003A wall clock, I just had to put a battery in it and off it took.

The wooden one is coming in from the UK next week around August 19th, can't wait to get it.

I have been working on translating a repair bulletin on the repair of 1/2 and 1/4 movements by Leon Hatot, in the bulletin he recommends cleaning the points with gasoline which I suppose would work, if you removed the battery first. He adds that no knowledge of electricity is NOT necessary to repair his clocks.
