Workshop: How to Keep Your Clock Running
(and save some $$$ too)
Where: the downtown Beaverton library,
12375 SW 5th St. Beaverton, OR.
When: Sunday October 15th, 2017,
2:00pm – 4:00pm.
What you’ll learn:
- How often does my clock need to be cleaned and re-lubed?
- Is this something I can learn to do (yes!)?
- How to look for damage/wear that will require repairs.
- How to do many of these repairs yourself.
- What tools and supplies you need, where to obtain them, and how to use them.
Who we are:
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.
