as a 1yr old clock nut newbie i need all the help i can get.

although i've gotten comfortable with brass time-only weight-driven movements (yeah, yeah, a lot easier without the strike side!), i was just gifted a pillar and scroll clock with a wood movement... an absolutely filthy wood movement.

rcroswell recommended that i get tom temple's 'extreme restoration' book, and indeed the chapter on wood movements proved totally helpful as to how to disassemble, clean, repair, reassemble and set up the movement.

in fact, the entire book... 750 pages, 2700 photos... is nothing but on-point useful and/or essential info.

i'm sure the more experienced forumites already know much of what's in the book, but for relative newcomers it's the textbook for clock college.

oh... and tom responded to a couple of direct questions and couldn't be a nicer guy.

that's all.
