Clock Repair Dvd Video - Eli Terry 8 Day Wooden Movement Mantel Clock Video For SaleWe Ship all my Subscribers,
Wooden Movement Mantel Clocks made between 1780 and 1820 were the result of the war effort needing brass for weapons. Wooden Clocks became the norm until metals were available again for household clocks. Engineers found certain woods outperformed others depending on its application. Plates were made of 1/4 sawn Oak or Mahogany, Apple for Wheels, Maple and Birchfor Arbors and so on.
Very few of these Clocks made it into our time due to where they were used. On a fireplace mantel used everyday for heating and cooking. The wood dries out and teeth begin breaking off. Also when brass movements were once again available, they would discard the wooden movement. The ones that did make it to our time deserve the best treatment to bring them back into operation. I hope you will consider bringing them back to life.
When was the last time you picked up a clock and wondered what it'd be like to fix it. What is it that clockmakers know that seems Magical? How hard could it be to learn? Could I really do this?
At less than half the cost of other Training Video's you can experience it for yourself. The video puts you closeup at the workbench instructed every step of the way. Each video takes you from start to finish on a specific clock so your not flooded with information applicable to other clocks.My teaching philosophy,I want to amazemy students with how much they can learn in a shorter amount of time.
Here is your chance to repair one of the most Collectible and hardest to find Clocks out there. Wooden Clock Movements were made between 1780 and 1820 due too a shortage of Clock Brass. Manufacturers switched to Wood and spent years designing a precision clock from a non-precision material. Oak, Mahogony Apple, Birch were used in different area's due to their unique properties. All woods were cut in a quarter sawn fashion whicheliminateswarping as the wood swells andexpandsdue to temperature and humidity changes.
TheEli Terry 8 Day Mantel Clock with Wooden Movement isvery rare. My video will show you the Overhaul/Repair process from Start to Finish. Many teeth needed to be replaced and pinions were worn and broken, pivots and bushings were replaced, 200 years of old repairs needed to be removed and re-done. This clock will be your labor of love. My video is over 7 hours long to show you each step.

Let me show you what it would be like to pickup a Clock and see in your mind how it works,the many wheels turning so slowly that it takes a week or more to unwind. Taking it a step further, how could these wheels be made to run so precisely and why do they stop after so many years of running. You'll begin to recognize the worn area's and know how to repair it back to original health. This is what I show and explain in my Video's.

I look forward to hearing from you, like this Great response from a returning Student!!Hi Al,I just finished the 2-DVD lesson on the 1913 Gilbert that you sent. I must say that you did an outstanding job! I really enjoyed watching you work your way through each hurdle that you came across. You demonstrated that a person can solve many problems if they will just think them through. This DVD is really helping me with the Gilbert 1912 Mission mantel clock that I’m working on. It’s sort of like having your teacher there with you, showing you what to do next.My grandfather collected and repaired clocks when I was young. I doubt that he would have ever imagined that you could learn clock repair by watching clips over this thing called the “internet”, or watch full length training material on DVD. What a world!Thanks again!SW*******response ResponsesHi Al,I just finished the 2-DVD lesson on the 1913 Gilbert that you sent. I must say that you did an outstanding job!
