My SharonII will not run more than a few minutes if it is not sitting on a level surface.  Experiment.  Make sure it is not leaning forward AT ALL.  This impedes the pendulum and causes it to stop swinging.

David E Booth Jr, t/a Precision Repair

Expertise

I can answer questions about repair and maintenance for all brass and wooden movement American clocks, and wooden movement "Black Forest" clocks made between 1700 and 1900. I will not do valuations, as there are too many variables without seeing the item in person, and knowing the area in which it will be insured or sold.

Experience

I have been repairing clocks and pocket watches professionally since 1980, when I started working part time for a certified Master Clock and Watchmaker, Robert Goodman. I am charged with upkeep maintenance and repair of the City of Westminster's Tower Clock. There have been several articles published in the local papers about my efforts to restore that clock.
