Hi everybody, I learned, a few days ago, that a neighbor had acquired this clock (do you call the style "Bavarian"? - I forgot) from someone unloading old possessions; don't even know what, if anything, was paid for it (my impression either very cheap or free; he's extremely casual about it) . I told him I would post here a picture and inquire what to try (including what to look for as to possible minor DIY steps not requiring significant tech knowledge) to get it running; I told him the most basic issues are a) is it in beat, b) does it need cleaning and oiling; I said if it's merely (a) I could handle that; if (b) he needs a technician. I said I could come over and see if there was anything extremely non-technical, like an obviously loose part to be tightened. Bottom line, I said I won't do anything to risk worsening its condition, but would inquire at NAWCC on all aspects (identification and any simple, relatively non-invasive measures). Thanks for anything you can say about the clock (don't mince words; if trash, be blunt), and what I might look at/try to get it running based on the limited information. He has no idea the last time it has run. Thanks so much as always!
