my repairman passed away a few years back, (R.I.P.) and there's no local people around that's not backed up to the gills. any good references anywhere (shipping wouldn't be a problem) or is this a good business opportunity (skills and tools allowing!). i have one clock that stops every hour at 7 minutes after (bad gear?), one that "jumps" to striking the hour at the half hour (sticky spring?) and one that just plain quit. i won't mention the cookoo clock. fought that thing forever with wd40, extra weights, and leveled it to perfection, nothing worked for long. thanks in advance for your suggestions.

In my humble opinon The wd40 is speeding up the
wearing out process in your clock . Not much lub
and attracts dust . An old clock maker told me once to put a little jar of kerosene in there will help the best . My grandfather clock has been running for about 20 years now , keeps on ticking , time for a cleaning though Wouldn't you say

In this 'disposable' society it seems that things like tailoring and shoe repair and clock repair are dying arts. That's a shame too because what happens to the beautiful old clocks that we need to pass down in our families?
