Hello all, I have wanted to learn more about clock repair for years. I have enjoyed clocks and appreciate how they work. What has held me back has been the assumed large learning curve. It appears that even basic work on these is complex and looks a bit overwhelming. Am I correct in my assumption? -Should you be an "expert" of all things clocks before opening one of these up? -Are there simple repairs/cleanings that are not overly difficult? -I have done small engine repair in the past and realized that 90% of the issues with non running motors can be traced to bad gas. These repairs require a simple cleaning and replacing of gaskets in most instances. If this similar to clocks? Are there a few repairs that you see constantly, or is each unique and difficult? -How did you learn clock repair? Was it handed down or did you tear into a clock to learn? -Is there a great online resource for learning (besides this forum)? -What is the best toolkit needed for a beginner? I appreciate everyone taking the time to read and reply here!
