Beginner movements
It is recommended you start with a single train - time only movement [one winding hole].  I discourage cuckoo clocks, anniversary clocks, french movements, balance wheel without a pendulum movements for the first year.  Three train / chiming movements [three winding holes] need three years plus experience.

Student Comment

 

Hi Rod,
I just wanted to thank you once again. I thoroughly enjoyed the clock class this recent weekend, and learned a great deal. I'm excited and invigorated to take my clock work further, and appreciate your insight and instruction throughout the class. I look forward to staying in touch as I progress, and to likely seeing you an evening during your clock class once I have chosen one (of my many) projects. I will be in touch.
Thanks again,
Andrew

I'm enjoying reading your book.  I've already learned more in a couple days of reading than I learned the whole last term of clock class.  The previous instructor had to quit teaching so early in the term.  I was given specific directions from him, Steve, and Terry, regarding my specific time-only clock, but I did not really know why I was doing what I was doing.  So, as you can imagine, I'm pretty enthusiastic about your teaching style and hope to learn a great deal from you!

Have a nice rest of your Thursday,
L.E.

Hello, Rod:
Thank you for taking the time and trouble to keep the clock class running. I enjoyed learning from you. I look forward to seeing you in the fall.
Bruce
