    A book that I have found most helpful as a repair reference is Questions and Answers of and for the Clockmaking Profession. It was published by AWI in 1981. It is full of quick information in a question and answer format and has other sections of more detail with illustrations and photographs accompanied by explanatory text.The chap[ters are: I Clocks, some basic types; II The Wood Movement; III The Pendulum; IV (or IIII) Escapements - Recoil - Dead-Beat - Floating; V Trains - General fratures, Gearing; VI Poweer sources - Maingsprings; VII Strike Trains; VIII Pepivoting, Rebushing; IX Lathe work - Tools; X Dissasembly, Cleaning, Lubrication; XIMetals in Clockmaking; XII Theory, Mathematics, Electricity; XIII Striking Mechanisms; XIV Definitioons; XV Basic repair reprints (general repairs, Escapements, Heat Treating Metals); XVI Useful Tables; XVII Reference Books

    Explanations seem to be clear and have been a big help to me in several repairs.

    Sorry about all the typing errors. I think you can still figure out the info.
