Clock Reference Stuff and Horological Links on the Web

Theses pages contain various reference materials and horological links on the web.  In the future I will probably add some information on caring for and restoring antique clocks, but unfortunately, I still have to work for a living (it does get in the way of things I would like to do).

If you are interested in learning the techniques used to restore clock movements, cases, dials, and glass tablets, please check out Chapter 124's horological class availability and schedules.  The link is provided at the bottom of this page.  You do not have to be a member of the NAWCC or Chapter 124 to participate in these classes.
