After retiring from the Army in 1981 Willy started fooling around with clocks as a hobby. He attended a couple of NAWCC courses in Columbia PA and a couple of field suitcase courses around the country. The hobby eventual grew into a small clock repair business while he was living in Columbia SC. After finally retiring for good and moving to FL he mostly works on his own clocks and an occasional repair for friends.
Presentation: "Converting an American 8 Day Time & Strike movement to a Ship's Bell Clock”
Description: This program will describe the mechanics involved in converting ANY American 8 day time and strike movement so that it strikes in the ship's bell sequence. It will also describe the home made tools, such as a depthing tool and resistance soldering unit, I used to construct it.

The History and Efforts to Preserve Daytona Beach’s
Unique Coquina Clock Tower
Read the article researched and written by NAWCC Chapter 154’s President, Randy Jaye, documenting the history of this symbolic structure, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. It includes the various efforts to service and maintain both the structure and its clockworks. It also documents the recently completed Rehabilitation Project (which the city of Daytona Beach not only contributed a significant amount of money, but did a stellar job managing the project to a successful, ahead of schedule, completion.)
