Seller: crunruh (24,039) 100%, Location: Evanston, Illinois, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 362496703632 This Old Clock by David Goodman This Old Clock is a text that David Goodman wrote and self-published for his for his classes on clocks. It is a well-respected publication that's reputation as an elementary guide has spread beyond his students. Mr. Goodman's opening paragraph to his book describes it best. He states: "Because the sub-title oft his book is "class notes in clock repair" you may have the idea that the principal object of this course is to demonstrate how to fix clocks... well, not quite. Our principal object will be to provide a special understanding of clock mechanisms, of the kids of clocks you are most likely to see as you begin collecting them -- simple ones and them much more complicated clocks -- in a manner which pays special attention not to the differences between them (so that each clock becomes a something new to learn) but to the way that all clocks are the same. They are the same in that their principal components do the same things. That will soon become apparent. As we move along you will also see that all cocks are different -- but they are different only in that the mechanisms that perform those same functions are different, and there you have the premise of this clock course. If you understand what clocks do and the part that is supposed to do it and just a couple of the different ways that it is done in clocks, you will have the basis for understanding every clock, even if it is a clock -- especially if it is a clock -- you have never seen before, and you will be able to recognize and understand how that particular clock is doing it. You will "understand" that clock with a minimum of repetition and that's how we will be able to cover so much ground in so little time." This Old Clock is a spiral bound paperback.
