On an exam, the class was asked, "What did Mohandas Gandi and Genghis Kahn have in common?""Unusual names," answered one child.That same student might give the same question if asked, "What do Charles Terwilliger and Joseph Rabushka have in common?"In fact, both men have written invaluable books informing horologists how to repair 400-day clocks, often called "anniversary clocks" by laymen.The first edition of Charles Terwilliger's 400-Day Clock Repair Guide was published in 1953. I believe the first copy I bought was the 3rd edition, 1956, which was in the form of a 100 page pamphlet--that is, folded and stapled rather than bound. Terwilliger's book is now in its 10th edition with 237 pages.The invaluable features of Terwilliger's 400-Day Clock Repair Guide are the two sections "Back Plate Illustrations" and "Suspension Spring Unit Identification" which provide the technical data for replacing mainsprings and suspension springs in virtually every 400-day clock ever manufactured. Charles Terwilliger also has sections on questions and answers, adjusting escapements, and other repair advice. It would be nearly impossible to repair a 400-day clock without the data found in Terwilliger's book.In 2010 Joseph Rabuska published his book Repair and Restore Your 400-Day Clock. My first reaction was, "Why do we need this book when we have Terwilliger's?" After reading Rabuska's book, I have the answer. We need it because it is an apt supplement to Terwilliger's book. You must have Terwilliger and you should have Rabuska if you are going to repair 400-day clocks.Mr.
