    Becker Clock weight driven movement doesn't stop chiming

    A couple of months ago it was necessary to re-string this movement with cat gut. The weights were hanging on a kind of fish line wire, and the chime side got a bit 'entangled'. Before this entanglement, the clock was working fine. Long story short, I hired the cat gut to be installed and a...

    German Wall Clock Time Spring Needs to Be Replaced... nothing more

    I would appreciate some advice on the repair of a broken (barrel) spring in a German clock movement. I must assume most members here can do this type of repair, but unfortunately, I can't. And because you are skillful at doing your own repairs, you don't have to take your clock movements to...
