An Introductory Guide to Repairing Mechanical Clocks

Scott Jeffery
This up-to-date, clearly written and beautifully illustrated book is targeted at the amateur repairer and at the absolute beginner with no experience, as well as at hobbyists who often dabble with, but have little knowledge of, the techniques used in quality horological work. Written by a professional clock repairer with a common sense approach, this workshop companion for the beginner 'keeps things simple' whilst placing an emphasis on the quality of the work. It provides step-by-step illustrated instructions and simplifies a large variety of tasks that are often regarded as being complicated, such as re-pivoting, jewelling and bushing. Moreover, it presents a great deal of useful advice and contains over 400 high quality colour images that help to explain and clarify every procedure that is covered.

About the author

Scott Jeffery's interests in horology stem from his fascination with engineering and workshop practices. After studying aerospace engineering at BTech level, he went on to university to pursue his interests in aerodynamics and mechanical engineering in the form of a bachelor's degree in motor sport engineering. After receiving a mechanical watch one Christmas, he enrolled in the British Horological Institute's distance learning course, and is now a fully qualified MBHI. Scott has repaired over a thousand clocks and runs Hampshire Clock Works in Twyford where he was initially trained by his mentor, Chris Baldwin CMBHI.
