Found this two clocks in a derelict state. They are non runners but seem to be complete. I find it beautifull clocks and like to get them running again. Dou you think the springs are still usable or do I need to buy some replacements? I have read there seems to be some kind of repair/maintenance manual for this kind of clock, I would love to have a copy. Does anyone know where to get me one?
Thanks,
Peter

Really nice clocks. The slight bends in your springs
should not be an issue.
I think there are some books on these but there is not
a lot to them. They are said to be fussy to setup.

Reprint of repair manual always seen available on eBay. Also Martin Swetsky's "A Guide to Electrical Horology" has a chapter on the Never Wind. Fun clocks with clever mechanism and design.
