My name is Lester (Les) McAlister and I would like to welcome you to my website which is dedicated to research, documentation and repair of Sangamo and Hamilton-Sangamo clocks as well as “time” related items. Because of their relationship to the Illinois Watch Company and Hamilton Watch Company, we will have items and information related to them as well. Please enjoy looking through this information and feel free to contact us with any suggestion or requests you may have.
NOTE: This website will be going through MAJOR changes over the next several months as we move into the 21st Century and switch over to WordPress. Please check back often….you never know what you will find.
My thanks to the following individuals for their assistance and support:
Bill Ellison: The encyclopedia of Electric Horology.
Larry Shingledecker: Master Clockmaker and the holder of all horological knowledge.
Bob Feiertag: The original Sangamo Clock collector and researcher.
In Memory of:
Ken Kerr: Mr. Sangamo!
Bob Helfert: The “Professor” and Sangamo clock lover.
Fred Armbrust: My best friend and weekly gabfest.
Dave Carlson: The “Engineer” who was always there to help.
