Horological and Micro-Precision Project. Final Report.
Dobrovolny, Jerry S.; And Others
The purposes of the project were (1) to establish better methods of training technicians for the horological and industrial fields, (2) to encourage more young people to investigate horological and micro-precision work as a career, (3) to train a group of students who would be employable in diverse horological and industrial areas, and (4) to help horological schools in their training programs through the benefits of this research and demonstration project. The first period of 5 months was spent in curriculum planning, preparation of class materials, and in equipping the horology laboratory, while the second period of 7 months was used to train a group of students in horological and micro-precision skills. Essentials of preparing and conducting a course in horology and micro-precision technology and a chronological record of the horological and micro-precision laboratory sessions are given to provide information on this first attempt to formulate a course in horology and micro-precision training. Some of the materials generated from the project include: (1) course outlines for horology laboratory and related subjects, (2) a proposed certificate horological curriculum and an associate degree micro-precision curriculum, (3) a disassembly and assembly procedure programed instruction booklet, (4) a detached lever escapement function and adjustment booklet, and (5) chronograph illustrations.
