After years of service the old oil and dust in clocks dries into a paste. This grime grinds away the clock wheel pivots and gears which can cause severe damage to the pivot holes, pivots and gear teeth.
Restoring your antique clock saves it from wearing out prematurely, adds value and can fix old problems. It also prepares it for the next 10 years of good service.
RESTORATIONS INCLUDE as a minimum:
– Complete “strip down” overhaul
– Chemical cleaning and re-oiling
– Standard bushing work (worn holes)
– Regrinding of pallets and wheel pivots
– New hammer leather for a softer striking sound if needed
– New gut line for longcase clocks
– Advice on case/dial restoration
– 1 year guarantee
