• We are aware of the performance issues with the forum. These are due to problems with Comcast's shared lines in the Columbia, PA area. On December 15, we signed a contract to bring a dedicated fiber line to the forum servers. It should take somewhere between 30 and 90 days to install. Thank you for your patience.

I have attempted several times to add pictures, but have not been successful.
The clock I have is a family clock, purchased by my gggrandfather in Mooresville, NC. It is in bad need of repair. I live in Chattanooga, TN and am looking for someone (possible nearby) to do these repairs. I would appreciate recomendations.

Hey Guy, Have you read “How to attach photos to your post “ in General Clock Discussions on the forum? This should help you. I load mine by using the PC icon under POST REPLY. Robbie

Try contacting dianemg506@aol.com
She is the president of your local chapter 16-DIXIE of the NAWCC. She may be able to help you find someone to repair your clock. Best Regards, Robbie P.

Hello Guy,

The clock appears to be in tremendously original condition visually. - I would not do anything to it!

I see two visible issues: flaking reverse paint on the tablet glass and flaking dial paint.

The stenciling is fading, but it is still original - leave it alone.

I would not have anyone attempt restoring the flaking paint in tablet glass or the dial as it will negatively impact the clock's originality..

If you wanted find someone to work on the movement, be really there are very few individuals who really know how to properly work on these 30 hr. wooden movements..

Guy,

She might not reply as you and are not an NAWCC member or she doesn't check her email very often.

Post some photographs of the clock or explain the clock's issues, members might be able to better assist you.
