|Comment||OK, sorry that I took this long to respond on the Hamilton clock, but I wanted to allow a full weeks' winding to make sure I could regulate it properly. Anyway, thank you for a simple and effective solution. The paper towel trick worked great, not only did it clean the hairspring, but my otherwise sloppy lube job looks much more professional. I also used a tiny artist's brush to dab a small amount of lighter fluid on the hairspring, quickly followed by the paper towel.|
Answers by Expert:
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.
