Cut nails arrived and dutifully installed.
Only bad news is that I called the clock repairer today and he informs me that two of the gears are damaged. He thinks he has some in his 20í container - somewhere. If he canít find them he will have to cut new ones. Doesnít sound cheap
Just had a teaser sent to me by the gentleman restoring my clock mechanism
Just some minor adjustments then its back in its metal case. I will then deliver the wooden case so he can mount it and test run it for a week to check clearances for the weights, chains and pendulum.
Delivered the restored wooden case to the clock repairer on Monday so he could fit the mechanism and carry out alignment of the mechanism, chain, pendulum etc. within the case.
Picked up the clock yesterday. Had a crash course in adjustments and chain winding. Now all mounted (with all the ornaments that go with these clocks ) and running for the first time in many, many years.
Darren, the Clock repairer in Tinonee is brilliant. The mechanism purrs as do the hourly and 1/2 hourly chimes.
