I don’t know the history of the clock. Never thought of drywall for sure. I’ll ask him when he picks it up. Thanks, DadI don't have a lot of experience with WD-40 treated clocks, but I do have some experience with how copper reacts to sulfur compounds. The fact that the corrosion is very widespread and even makes me wonder if Chinese Drywall could be involved here. While most of the Chinese Drywall went to Florida, I definitely remember some going to the Port of New Orleans. If the house has any history of rotten egg smell or if other copper and brass objects in the home are experiencing similar corrosion, they might want to look into it.
Thanks, Schatz. He is a friend who lost his wife a year ago after caring for her for many years while she suffered from rheumatoid arthritis. He now collects clocks as a grieving tool. He brings me one almost every week. Most are a mess. I understand because I lost my wife in 2014. Clock interests and friends, and my faith have been special for me.Man, that looks good, Will. I would not have thought it could possibly come out looking that good! They're definitely lucky to have a friend like you!
