• 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!

Does anyone know who can refurbish the attached dial? I can repair the clock, but have not done dials.

Some dials had raised or indented numbers, and those are much easier. Yours looks painted on a flat surface. That means that after silvering the dial, you would have to paint the numbers back on. If you are not an artist, that might be beyond your skill level. There are some pretty good video's on Youtube about how to re-silver a dial ... but it will destroy the numbers. There are dial restoration services out there too, but they are not cheap nor are they fast. You'll have to make a decision. The clock would not look good with a paper dial, so don't go that way :)
