I posted this in restoration but it also has repair of movements so thought I would post it here as well.

That's the name of the book I just ordered. Found it at Amazon much cheaper than at the restoration site. $39.17 to the door. Since I rarely went beyond movement repair I need some pointers now that it is a hobby and I now have time to get to my collection.

Figure there must be some good info in 698 pages. Here's the site if anyone might be interested. Also I am not affiliated with this site in any way, shape or form. Just passing it on.

Yep. Tom Temple is a member of the MB, and has been a contributor in the past. He knows his stuff.

Glad to hear that. I rarely messed with cases so I need a little help in that area. I have about 40 clocks that need some face lifting to one extent or another. Plus I recently bought four more..

I have a movement in one for the shame list when my camera batteries get charged..and another that will present a mystery for some of you.
