I found this stuff at the local Ace Hardware. It does a bang-up job on brass clock plates, and it's quick. Rub it on, rub it around a bit, rub it off. Presto!

Ammonia + chlorine bleach = phosgene gas...one of the chem warfare faves in WW One. Kills indiscriminately and unpleasantly.Len said:Paul

That's interesting....Mike Phelan, who used to post here, insisted that the "old English" way to clean clocks was with Brasso, and to polish out with chalk thoroughly.Bob said:Could this be anything like Brasso?

Comments?
I meant to add "in the pivot holes".
