STUDENTS FROM WEST DEAN COLLEGE – PRESENTATIONS

Malcolm Archer FBHI

For our May meeting we welcome Malcolm Archer and his students from West Dean College. This annual event gives the students a chance to try their hand at public speaking and us the opportunity to hear what is going on in horological education. Students will present on a project that makes up a major part of their coursework for qualification in restoration and conservation of antique clocks. The evening promises good variety and an opportunity for lively discussion.

The titles of the 4 talks are as follows:

1) Producing pinions to an historic profile
2) A replication of a marine chronometer helical balance spring
3) The development of the English brass industry (1568 – 1800)
4) Maintaining power and all that !

Please note the meeting is not at our normal venue but at:

The Endeavour Scouting Hall across the road
