David Lindow Clockmaker
Clockmaker
Lake Ariel, PA
David Lindow moved to Pennsylvania in 1988 to study theology. After two years of college master clockmaker Gerhard Hartwigs asked him to help in the shop for the summer after which he apprenticed to Mr. Hartwigs for 5 years learning not only the manufacture of period style clocks but also the conservation and restoration of
period pieces as well. The process of restoring period clock mechanisms and other instruments, as well as building handmade clock movements, gave him a deep love
for machinery, especially those antique pieces that not only had a function but intrinsic beauty. Almost by accident he fell into a rose engine lathe in bad need of
restoration and conservation and fell in love not only with the equipment but what it could produce. Seeing that these incredible machines had not been manufactured in decades, he used his shop and tools to re-introduce them to the market. Since the introduction of this lathe in 2006, David has not only restored numerous pieces of vintage engine turning equipment but has also worked incessantly developing tooling and accessories for the rose engine and has become thoroughly addicted to the entire art form of ornamental turning, regardless of what type of machine or its origin.

In clocks, David has had extensive experience in the conservation and restoration period clocks of American and European origin and specializes in 18th and early 19th century Americana. Both his restoration work and new clocks can be seen in many museums and other institutions throughout the country.
