What's insideA set of lessons on watchmaking produced by Elgin.NEW PRINTING - SECOND EDITION
I'm into the educational side of watch repair, so I was happy to have found another book to add to my library of these course materials. This is a rare one for sure. The book is40 pagestotal. There are some section break kind of pages that you expect to find in a lesson based book like this, but not to the point of being excessive. The introduction page does a great job of explaining the text, so take a moment and read that page.The hand-drawn illustrations in the book are beautiful. I have included a couple of pages that show some of these illustrations.The lessons are all step-by-step instructions on how to complete the concept being taught. There is not a lot of text explaining the concepts in the lessons portion of the book. The lessons portion are the first 20 pages Some highlights:
The "course outline" page has what the 8 lessons consist of
Lessons are a step-by-step list of things you need to do to complete the benchwork
The first 20 pages are the lessons.
Each lesson has the steps and illustrations that accompany the lesson
Much more text based instruction is located in the second half of the book
In this part there are great illustrations and information on topics such as cannon pinion tightening, friction jewels, roller jewels, etc
There is a great discussion on correctly centering and leveling a hairspring
A detailed instruction on setting up the escapement
