Next Chapter 21 Meeting November 30, 2020

Greetings members and guests!

We are hoping that this email finds you and your family in good health as we endure the COVID-19 pandemic.

Because we are taking the time to prepare for the November meeting (also our annual meeting), we are moving the date back a week to November 30, at the regular time on Zoom. We hope this isn’t inconvenient. Thank you for your understanding.

Program Update: Ken Reindel has prepared a brief but intriguing presentation on the ubiquitous Japanese-made Copal motor assembly which is found in many, many Flip Clocks. He’ll show you common failure mechanisms and how to rectify them and get that motor running again. We’re also asking all members to dust off any Flip Clocks that they may have in their possession, and bring them along for a Show and Tell session! Who knows–after you see Ken’s presentation, maybe you can resurrect yours! We are looking forward to making our November session a celebration of the Flip Clock.

Maybe you want to ask, “What’s a flip clock?” Almost anything with numerals that advance. Flip clocks have numerals that drop one at a time (more at the top of the hour!) as time advances. If it has hands, it isn’t a flip clock! 🙂 Of course, we will describe a few of them in the presentation (there are many classic examples) if you need a refresher.

We look forward to our time together in a couple of weeks. Also posted here (the previous post) are the minutes from our previous meeting of October 26, 2020. You will also find the YouTube link to the presentation The Hammond Bichronous Restoration .

As a general rule, and for your reference, our YouTube channel is the home for all of our Zoom presentations. The link is here: NAWCC Chapter 21 YouTube Channel so be sure to visit and bookmark it!
