Clock Repair

a fast and professional repair service from just £60.00 plus return post.

Don't throw away that old family clock or timepiece just because it does not work. We can repair and service your old clock restoring the movement and casing to its former glory.

After a period of twenty to thirty years depending upon how the clock has been looked after the movement becomes worn, the clock plate holes that the pivots rotate in should be perfectly circular and fit the pivots. Worn holes become oval causing the gears of the clock train to jam, stopping your clock. At the same time worn pivots become too small for their holes. To remedy the problem the movement must be completely taken apart and cleaned. Pivots and pivot holes are inspected and the offending pivot holes are rebushed with brass bushes. This makes the movement potentially as good as new ready for the next generation to enjoy.

The clock movement is completely cleaned, reassembled, lubricated and tested for upto a week on a test stand where the reconditioned movement can be monitored for reliability and time keeping.
