Hi folks. This is my first post and my first clock. I used to enjoy hearing my aunty’s mantel clock chime when I was a boy. I’m in a nostalgic mood these days. It started with DVDs of programs I enjoyed when I was a boy, like “Robinson Crusoe” and “Tom Grattan’s War”. I noticed the lovely oil lamps they had and got one from eBay. Then I saw a grandfather clock and mantel clock, so here I am with a 1930s clock marked ‘foreign ‘. The hammers were knocked out of whack, well two of them were. The two nearest the door were stuck above the bar that the rods emerge from and couldn’t strike the rods. I’ve fixed them now by undoing the two screws under the clock to adjust the rods and now they sound ok. The winding arbours are difficult to wind up. I am currently trying to slow the clock a wee bit and it’s taking longer than I thought it would. Anyway, it’s not too bad for £30 I think.
