    Default Friesian wall clock

    Are there any formites, on the Upper North Shore Sydney, that repair the above clocks or know anyone that does ?
    This one is over 100 years old, was on a wall working beautifully approx 35 years ago, went into “storage” and is now in a sorry state.
    We have all the “bits” but I have no photos at this point in time.

    Friesian is a breed of cow is it not? so you have cow clocks
    Life expectancy would grow by leaps and bounds if green vegetables smelled as good as bacon.

    Seeing I got no genuine responses, this is now being moved to the Restoration section of the forum

    This thread started here then went to the Restoration forum for the case.

    However, the mechanism had to be repaired and in case someone comes here looking for help on clock mechanisms (rather than the Restoration Forum), I thought I would do a final post here and recommend Darren from Tinonee Clock Repairs who took care of an extensive renovation of my clock's mechanism.

    Here's the end result.
