This is the first time this much information has been available and compiled on the subject of wooden movement restoration and repair.  There are no other currently published books or video programs available on this repair subject.

It is very exciting to finally have a comprehensive educational program on the subject of wooden works movement repair!  

So many wooden movements in the past have suffered from poor quality repairs.  With proper repair knowledge, many discarded movements that were thought to be beyond repair, can now be restored.  Hopefully, future repairs will be more historically accurate and be acceptably completed.

Broken wheels, wheel teeth, pinion leaves, movement plates, retainers, pivots, levers, complete time and strike systems can be repaired and restored.  With this repair knowledge, many of these restorations can be accomplished.  Most of these movements have been in existence for 175-200 years.  These should continue to provide enjoyment and service for at least that much longer with proper maintenance.

The basic principles of time and strike mechanisms remain constant.  Working with movements made of wood cannot always be repaired and serviced in the same manner as brass.  Wood presents different challenges that must be addressed in a way that accommodates the various characteristics of wood.  Therefore, experience in brass movement repair does not fully qualify one to repair wooden movements.  Many different techniques and procedures need to be used in the repair of wood movement.
