Hello to cold and good by to the summer. Unfortunately our mechanical friends can change too. Clocks can gain time and lose time with temperature flux. (Humidity,etc.) Don't be alarmed this is normal. Just a simple change on the rating assembly (the nut on pendulum bob or leaf on the cuckoo clock) will do.Just remember up is fast and down is slow. A minute or two a week is acceptable for a mechanical clock, anything more could be a mechanical fault (worn bushings,scorn pivots,no oil,out of beat,etc)

Bushings wear out when your clock has not been maintained. All components are inspected for signs of wear. We offer cleanings, repairs and sales at reasonable prices. All estimate are free. All work comes with a one year warranty. Regular maintenance on a clock is done every three years to avoid a major overhaul.

Your clock should be maintained every three years. We offer clock repair at reasonable prices with a one year warranty.
Battery clocks should have there batteries changed once a year. After a year the batteries will sometimes leak acid. Sometimes batteries will not leak, but it is recommended to change your battery in your clock ones a year(same as a smoke detector). Sometimes you can revive the movement by oiling them sometimes you can not. Non-alkaline batteries don't leak acid but don't last as long. Check with the manufacturer first.
Routine servicing is the maintenance that should be completed on a clock every three years. The movement is removed from the case. It is fully analyzed for wear and tear from the pivots, bushings, or any other parts. When the work is done then the clock is fully oiled, adjusted, and then it goes into testing. Testing is where the running of the movement is checked daily. When testing is complete, the movement is returned to the case where additional testing is done. Some movements test well quickly while other require more patience. When testing is fully complete, then the clock is ready for pick-up or delivery.
An overhaul is a very specific and detailed process for your clock. The movement is completely disassembled and thoroughly cleaned using only clock cleaning solution and is then reassembled. The chime section is sychronized to the strike section and they are then synchronized to the time section and then finally lubricated and adjusted. The clock then goes into the testing phase (see Routine Maintenance for description of testing). Overhauls come with a one year warranty. Please be advised that overhauls are not routine and regular maintenance on your clock. Excessive dirt or dust,use of central air, and even exposure to open windows can add to the frequency of an overhaul.
A restoration is a rebuilding of the existing movement. It's required when a clock, after running a long period of time without service. These parts are usually bushings (bearings). The worn bushings will be drilled out and a new one made to replace it. Once the repairs are made then the clock receives testing time.It's warranted for a year. Although it is the original movement it will work like new.
