I am fortunate enough to have a friend, Mick, who is a clockmaker in his spare time. I gave him the clock from the Cadillac so he could work his magic on it. Mick has been travelling for work pretty regularly, so the clock was (understandably) pushed down the priority list.
He had an opportunity to start looking at it last weekend, and sent me some pictures tonight of the work he has done, which is most impressive. The clock is now working, however the automatic winder mechanism is not operating consistently, so he needs to spend a bit more time sorting it out.
I thought I would share the pictures he sent through. The results are impressive.
If anyone reading this has a clock which needs refurbishing, I am happy to pass on Mick’s details (he lives in SE Suburbs in Melbourne).
