The Brant Wright collection of Do-it-Yourself books on the art of clockmaking is a wonderful resource for all levels of competence, from the manufacture of a simple 16th century style or battery-driven electric clocks to delicate Skeleton clocks or the complex Congreves. In this eighth volume of John Wilding's series, the reader is shown how to construct a Castle Clock, with numerous diagrams and photographs accompanying the text for ease of reference.
