Clock Repair Houston

Grandfather service calls

My philosophy on periodic servicing of a Grandfather clock is basically, if it's not broke don't fix it.  I know that is a pretty simplistic approach but I have come to this thinking through years of rebuilding many types of clocks. What I have found, clocks that have been oiled on a regular basis have the most wear. I believe this occurs because the oil that was applied at the factory collects dust over the life of the clock, and when new oil is applied it floods the pivot with that old oil and dirt creating a fine grinding compound that actually enhances the wear process.  

Having said that there are many things other than wear that can stop a clock; some minor, others not so minor.  So please feel free to contact me and set up an appointment.
