    Thank you ver much for the information about the book "Buckeye Horology". I am researching the Luman Watson Hollow Column Clock and i understand the there are photos of this clock in the book. Because examples of this clock are quite rare it has proven very difficult to find any reliable information about this clock. Thank you.

    Fortunat,

    Thank you very much for the offer to copy some pages of Buckeye Horology, it was most appreciated. I have however obtained a NOS copyfrom another NAWCC member. I need anything that might help my research into the hollow column clocks of Luman Watson. Again thank you.
