Workshop: How to Keep Your Clock Running
(and save some $$$ too)
The local chapter of the National Association of Watch and Clock Collectors (NAWCC), a group of people in all things horological: we collect clocks and watches, or repair/restore them, or build them from scratch, or do case refinishing, or study their science and history…
The NAWCC issues a bi-monthly magazine with truly fine articles on collecting, repairing, and history; has extensive on-line forums for communicating with others; and a world class lending library (available via U.S. mail for a nominal cost) with thousands of books and other media types, many being very rare and difficult to obtain.
Our local chapter 31 meets at the Beaverton library at 2:00 on the 3rd Sunday of every month; we have a “mart” where folks bring items to buy and sell, followed by a program, usually a presentation on some aspect of horology.
In October, we are throwing the doors open and inviting all those who want to keep their clocks running and in good repair to come and start learning the fundamentals. If you have a clock or two that’s sitting idle because of it’s too expensive to service, come on the 15th and learn if you can save that money and do the work yourself.
