This course covers the time only clock movement with balance wheel escapements and hairsprings typically found in “Alarm” and other balance wheel, pin lever clocks. The course will concentrate on the fundamental repair procedures needed in this course and for other Watch and Clock Traveling Workshop courses. The student will learn and gain confidence with the following repair procedures: straighten hairsprings, putting a balance wheel clock in beat, replacing a hairspring, and repair procedures to the escapement.
IMPORTANT: The student should note that only one type of clock movement can be used in this class. The clock movement that the student should bring is a time only balance wheel, pin lever escapement movement. No other clock movement will be permitted in this class, so please concur with this request. The prerequisite requirement for this class is an above skill and understanding of clock repair and clock assembly procedures.
This class is NOT for the beginning student. NO CLASS TIME WILL BE AVAILABLE TO DISCUSS BASIC REPAIR PROCEDURES.
Tool List: The class material required for the class are as follows:
1. One balance wheel clock movement typically found in an alarm clock. (This movement should be cleaned, bushed and ready for running, or running. We will not be making any repairs to the clock during class except for the escapement.)
2. Tools for removing the balance wheel. (Fine pliers, screw drivers)
3. Two fine tweezers.
4. Small block of hardwood. (Around 2” x 2”, size is not critical.)
