Easy to read, good photographs, clear explanations. Fun to work with. I would have rated five stars if I could find precise instructions on how to align the motor stators around the rotor upon reassembling the clock. Took me a while to figure that out.The book describes the American versions (110V / 60z) and though my European clock (230V / 50z) is a little bit different I could follow all the instructions well.

Hammond synchronous clocks are simple mechanisms that allow relatively easy access to their innards. This book is a comprehensive how-to guide to dismantling, cleaning, repairing, and reassembling the entire clock. It also provides detailed instruction for proper rewiring, a critical part of a complete refurbishment. Detailed photographs accompany the well-written text.

Good book. I followed the directions and successfully repaired a sealed Hammond clock motor. And then I disassembled the rest of the clock for cleaning and re-lubrication. Excellent book.

Great book on anyone who wants to repair Hanmond clocks. Very dealtailed step by step on how to repair and fix Hammond clocks.
