Description

“The Clockjobber’s Handybook” is a 1889 work by Australian writer Paul Hasluck that focuses on the care and maintenance of watches and timepieces. With chapters on the various tools, appliances, materials, and processes, this classic guide contains everything one needs to know when repairing, cleaning, or adjusting watches and clocks. Paul Nooncree Hasluck (1854 – 1916) was an Australian writer and editor. He was a master of technical writing and father of the ‘do-it-yourself’ book, producing many works on subjects including engineering, handicrafts, woodwork, and more. Other notable works by this author include: “Treatise on the Tools Employed in the Art of Turning” (1881), “The Wrath-Jobber’s Handy Book” (1887), and “Screw-Threads and Methods of Producing Them” (1887). Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially-commissioned new biography of the author.
