Hello, I'm a Horology newbie, I have previously posted in the pocket watch forums but this is my first post here. I brought the pictured Cuckoo Clock sometime ago in going condition, however it was stopping from time to time and my plans are to clean and reoil the movement before using it. I do have a couple of questions I hope the more experienced can help me with, do the chains and their weights require any other treatment a part from a good clean? And can anyone tell me who the maker etc of this clock might be? I gather the stamp in the rear door dates it to September 1976? I noticed someone before me has tried to remove the bellows by prying them off the inside of the case, they apparently didn't notice the outside screws..... I'm also fairly new to servicing any clock, I'll take some good photos of the movement and the position of the wire levers before I start, I have also collected the odd weblink that details working on these clocks but if there is any other advice anyone can give me I'm all ears! Take care, Karl.
