I just got this clock at an auction site. Seller said it was "ticking" when it was listed, then, when packing noted that it was no longer ticking so gave me a really good deal (I paid the shipping). It's pretty obvious these clocks were never meant to be repaired, but everything looks pretty good inside -- needs cleaning and oil. My question -- How to let down the mainspring? I don't see a click mechanism -- more like a spring-wound clutch. Does anyone actually repair these things or is it destined for the bin?
