Clock Wheel and Pinion Cutting

£15.99

Product description

One pursuit enjoying a remarkable boom in popularity is that of clock-making and restoring; many of the enthusiasts embracing it are from engineering or model engineering backgrounds and already in possession of workshop equipment, but others are prepared to invest in the machinery required, given guidance as to what is needed. Constructing a new clock, or restoring a damaged one, involves the production or repair of the train of gears and pinions in the mechanism and it is this aspect which principally calls for machining processes. How to calculate and cut wheels and pinions on a conventional lathe is comprehensively covered in this succinct little book by J. Malcolm Wild, a professional clock expert of high standing whose enthusiasm for clocks is evident from his writings.
Very slight foxing on last page and edges, otherwise inexcellent condition. Tight binding and clean pages.. Now out of print.
