• Upcoming updates
    Over the next couple of weeks we will be performing software updates on the forum. These will be completed in small steps as we upgrade individual software addons. You might occasionally see a maintenance message that will last a few minutes at most.

    If we anticipate an update will take more than a few minutes, we'll put up a notice with estimated time.

    Thank you!

Hello,

I have a special needs son who collects clocks. Most are your standard everyday clocks but also have a few very nice ones. I am looking for a repair person in Central NJ, that I can bring some of his clocks to be serviced. Since this is new to both of us, I need someone I can trust and someone who will not take advantage of 2 clock newbies. Can anyone suggest someone?

Hi Tony. I'm sure someone will be able to recommend a repairer shortly.

I read your story in the new clock section, wonderful that it is a family hobby. I would suggest that with 50 clocks you and your son should slowly learn how to repair and service them yourselves. Maybe take a few of the more valuable to a service person first and then learn how to do it yourselves. It's very satisfying as a hobby and I bet your son would love it. I saw his smiles, I too smile like that when I'm around my clocks.

Thank You! We have worked on a few of the less expensive ones. I even got a project Banjo Clock for free at the York PA Clock convention. We are going to rebuild that one together. We are taking it slow but learning. I appreciate your comments. I just want the more valuable ones to be done correctly.

If you were closer to PA, I could give you a couple of names, but that would be a hike for you.

You could contact Chapter One and ask for some names.

Also, I believe that richiec is a member of a chapter in NJ that may be closer to you. Even though he is a pocket watch guy, he may be able to provide you with some names of repairers who are closer to you.

Regards.
