Wheel and Pinion Cutting in Horology: Historical and Practical Guide

Wheel and Pinion Cutting in Horology: Historical and Practical Guide

Description

Many clock repairers carry out excellent work but avoid cutting their own wheels and pinions, fearing it is too complicated and involved. This book, written by an experienced clock and tool maker, aims to dispel those fears and offers a step-by-step guide to a satisfying aspect of horology. This book is written for both the amateur and professional involved in the making and restoring of clocks, and for anyone who intends to start building up a workshop and requires a guide to the equipment and how to use it. Sections include: the theory of gearing explained with basic fomulae, instruction on how to cut wheels and pinions, methods of making cutters, details on crossing wheels and mounting to arbours, and instruction on finishing and replacing worn pivots.
