2013 NAWCC Pritchard Award Winner, 17th, 18th and 19th century fusee watch restoration specialist, watch historian and researcher.
Workshop: "Turn your Dremel tool into a precision instrument. "
* Use two Dremel tools and counter rotation to achieve great milling results fast and cheap. Make watch hands, bushings and even pinions.
Presentation: "The use of tortoise shell as a decorative component of early time pieces."
* The hawksbill turtle was used for watch case coverings starting around 1650. Ken will explore its history in trade and the techniques used to exploit the beauty of this natural plastic. Today, sea turtles need our help as climate change and environmental degradation are making turtles vulnerable to human activity. Awareness is our best friend which will help us appreciate and secure the turtles future.

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.)
