Dear Members;

Has anyone had a chance to review the new book out titled "Challenging Repairs to Interesting Clocks" yet?

I was wondering if it is well beyond a beginners book or possibly too basic.

I always consider myself a novice because whenever I consider myself beyond novice so many members out shine me that I perish the thought and go back to the novice status.

I thank you for your anticipated reply(s).

In closing, I would like to extend to each of you a very happy and prosperous new year as well a heartfelt thank you to all who have assisted me with queries this past year.

Sincerely,

PJoe Coppersmith

Joe, perhaps if we knew who the author is, we might know a bit more about this book.

Good Morning Harold;

The book titled "Challenging Repairs to Interesting Clocks" is authored by late Edwin (Ed) Sowers III.

The book is somewhat described within the most recent Mart & Highlights as well as the most recent Bulletin.

Possibly the book is too new for anyone to have reviewed it as of yet.

The price seems reasonable, however.

Regards,

Joe Coppersmith

I tried to order this book last night and couldn't find it listed online. Looking at the tiles of the article I think some could be of interest to a novice. Others are more advanced, e.g. two of the the three on Atmos, Fabrication and replacement of Brocot escapement pallets, the Herschede two weight five tube movement, rebuilding deadbeat escapement pallets, Creating a six tooth segment for a tall case hour wheel.....etc.

Update received from the gift shop today. The book will be arriving in mid January and will be on the web site at that time.
