(Page updated April 2021)
The Chapter's goal is horological education - of Chapter members and interested members of the general public. To accomplish this, Lone Star Chapter 124 offers a variety of classes, workshops, and seminars throughout the year. In addition, designated "open bench" workshops are scheduled for Chapter members to consult with experienced repairers about problems they are having with clocks, and to use the Chapter's extensive collection of specialized horological tools to repair their clocks.
Classes (listed below) are limited in size and anyone interested in registering for a class should do so at the earliest opportunity. All class dates are subject to change, so please keep checking this page for date changes.
