Old oil and dirt can cause a lot of wear and tear in an antique clock and can eventually lead to it stop running altogether. This is why a movement needs to be stripped down, parts cleaned and polished with fresh oil to keep them in good working order for the future.
What work will be undertaken during an Antique Clock Restoration?
Processes in an overhaul include:
- Movement stripped down
- All parts machine cleaned
- Any bushing work required
- Pivots re-ground
- Gut line for Longcase and Fusee movements
- Hand polish
- Reassemble, oil and test.
If there are any more serious problems found during the antique clock restoration, for example; broken wheels or parts, a repair price will be offered before commencement of work.
