In the eighteen months that I have been working on repairing clocks, I have slowly been building my collection of clock repair tools. Right now I have a set of cutting broaches, a small assortment of bushings, I have a very small block of flat iron for hammering the bushings into the plates, and I also have a small hammer. I wanted to know if this is enough tools to replace bushings by hand. I heard that I need something to file the hole for the bushings prior to installment, which I assumed was what the cutting broaches were for but I could be wrong, I was wondering if someone could let me know exactly what kind of files I should look for so that I can make sure to get the right size for clock repair and bushing installment (assuming I actually need them). Besides my current bushing repair tools, I have an oiler set, an oil pan, clock oil, small screwdrivers, a set of larger files in different shapes and sizes, a number six let down tool which I made out of an old file handle and a clock winder, 30 hour and 8 day clamps, and a magnifying glass.
