Antique Clocks/Farcot Clock


I have 2 Farcot hanging clocks both with 4.25" screw on backs. My husband began working on clocks as a hobby and cannot find such a tool to unscrew the case back to clean/repair them. Can you offer some direction?

Sorry, we were traveling and slow to answer your question.  Merritt's ( has a number of tools for opening cases.  Search on opener. If none of these will work, please send picture of the clock backs to

I can then look for another solution.

I can not think of any questions I cannot answer in regard to repairing antique clocks or radios. However, I am sure there are a few I have not heard and may not be able to answer. If I cannot, I will say so. I have been repairing them since I was a young child.


My experience includes repairing CooKoo clocks, Westminsters, BimBam, almost all antique clocks. I do a bit of repair on battery clocks where the value is sufficient to warrant working on them. I also repair antique (tube type) radios - all makes.
