How We Restore A Clock Movement
All Overhauls Are Not "Created" Equal
Below is a description of the many steps involved in the restoration of an antique American clock movement. For the most part the same steps will apply to almost any type of clock. I chose this clock movement as an example because it is the most common movement that most repair shops will encounter.
All repairmen will clean and bush the clock mechanism, but many of them will leave out some of the finer details necessary for a proper repair. Leaving out these details allow them to charge less but leaves you with an inferior repair.
Although this is by no means a complete step-by-step description, we have included the most critical points. To avoid making this too long we have not included pictures of every small detail.
If we have overhauled a clock for you in the past, you might find it interesting to know how much effort went into your repair. If you are considering having a clock movement overhauled this will give you a good understanding of what will be done if we perform the work for you. If you are having it done somewhere else, you might use this information to make sure that you are receiving your money's worth.
