Prerequisites: CR-100 and CR-200

Introduction: This 4-day course will cover three-train, spring barrel, chiming clock movements. Chiming clock movements with three mainsprings from America, England, France, and Germany are all good for student projects.



What you will learn: This 4-day class focuses on the repair of complicated chime trains with variations in design. Students will be taught how to disassemble, clean, repair, re-assemble and synchronize their chime clock movements. Basic skills from CR-100 and CR-200 will be briefly reviewed. New skills, involving the repair and adjustment of the more complicated chime mechanisms will be covered in detail.

What you will need:

IMPORTANT: Movements will not be provided. Students must find and bring one or more three-train, chiming movement(s) for classroom work. Movements must include all parts, including the pendulum, mainsprings, suspension springs, etc. These movements are routinely available through eBay or inside many American and European clocks.

Note: Please bring a movement with potential for being repaired. No basket cases, please. For questions, contact the instructor, Phil Ball, ph-ball@tx.rr.com.

Tools: Everything you used in CR-100 and CR-200.

Instructor: Phil Ball
