I've been looking into these and really don't care if it’s an 8 day or thirty hour. I have found a fairly nice Ephraim Downs wooden works. But, I am a little gun shy. It’s listed as not having any broken teeth and the seller has told me it "It is not serviced and in running condition. It will tick and strike when pressure is applied. That is all I promise." I understand you can’t stand 100% behind something that you haven’t had serviced. I guess what I am looking for here is what should I look for and or ask? The clock looks 100% complete it just needs a few minor repairs that I can see from the get go. I am mainly worried about the movement though. I have no problem tackling projects or learning new things. I just don’t want to get too far in over my head on this one. Any input would be appreciated. Thanks.
