Wilding (J.): Plans for Crystal Skeleton Clock
O/P. Two sheets of dyline prints (ie the old "blueprint") containing plans for making a skeleton timepiece, similar to the well known 19th century clocks by James Edwards of Stourbridge, with engraved perspex wheel centres. There are no instructions with these plans so they are probably only suitable for an experienced clockmaker. (Ref: K3988 - G4)

Price: 15.00

Z. (A.): The Manipulation of Old and New Springs by the Watch Repairer
O/P. 45 pages, 14 figs, originally published in Chicago in 1908 this is a recent reprint. 100 years on, this is still a useful book for serious craftsmen. Very good copy (a few doodles on rear cover), card covers. (Ref: K2886 - F5)
