HSN Back Issues

Quite a few back issues are available in hard copy form. Please contact Bob Holmström at holmstro@gmail.com if you are interested in back issues in paper form.

We have decided to make back issues of the Horological Science Newsletter available online to paid up HSN members for no cost. This is the policy followed by some of the other horological organizations. Those organizations hold back access for the three most recent years, the earlier issues are available at no cost. We will do the same.

All of the issues have been OCRed and are now searchable. For now, the only indexes are those on the HSN website at > http://www.hsn161.com/HSN/newsletter.html

David Spong will issue passwords to those interested on a yearly basis.

Philip Woodward's W5 on CD

Compiled for the Horological Science Chapter #161 of the National Association of Watch and Clock Collectors by Bob Holmström

(This information may be copied but reference and credit must be made to the original creators of the material in this document)

This CD was created in order to provide as much information as possible about Philip Woodward's clock W5. W5 was described in Philip's book - My Own Right Time published by Oxford University Press in 1995. The material on this CD is an attempt to provide further information - It is not guaranteed to be 100% accurate but instead is a "best guess" based on drawings, sketches, and a computer CAD model. Work has begun on several versions of W5 and this material may be updated as required. Please keep me informed as to any progress duplicating or expanding on the W5 concept - Bob Holmström (holmstro @ gmail.com)

The CD contains the following information:

At fresh look at W5 - Horological Science Newsletter - 2001-2
