Hi Chris...well I have been a member of the AHS and the
EHG for over twenty years with a pre-internet interest in clocks three
times this long going back to my school days - this is just a
hobby but the benefits of AHS membership only seem to go on increasing.
You can inhabit and tap into a world of like minded enthusiasts not
only with emails but some meet-ups within a well organised framework of input to
support an interest at all levels. This may provide
information, research material, talks and lectures at a source point. If nothing
else the availability of instant digitalised searchable research material of
past periodicals, publications , video lectures and past members technical
papers on various topics are worth the cost of the membership
This is a personal opinion but reflects the " make of it what
you will" benefits as I see them.
Tic Toc ....Geoff

Hello Peter, tks for the recommendation and yes, I did consider
it a few months ago plus took some advice from clock enthusiasts and dealers
locally who were a bit dismissive due to annual cost of membership. For me as
a beginner with all sorts of clocks I have collected around my house, I did
worry that it's a bit 'hi-brow' and deep techy so perhaps when I've actually
had a chance to meet a few members in person and discuss the situation I might
I'm one of those people who love mechanical things and like to
see them in action and talk to the owner face-to-face to soak up the
enthusiasm and passion.
I'm finding this constant sitting at a keyboard
bashing keys sending emails rather sterile and frustrating and v puzzled why
there's not a willingness to pick up a phone and have a chat or meet on a Zoom
to show stuff live?
Anyway, thanks for the heads up on AHS. Bests, Chris in
E Sussex 07970 530655 I use WhatsApp and it's free!!!
