    Hi folks
    I am restoring an early American made clock (pre civil war) made by Chauncey Boardman and Joseph A. Wells, Bristol,Conn. It is similar to the Chauncey Jerome clocks that have the weights suspended by a pulley system on the sides of the cabinet.
    The problem is that the works are wooden. The strike chain great gear has a broken tooth.
    I am looking for a clockmaker that has the capability of repairing wooden works clocks.
    Thanks in advance for any assistance.
    My email is Robertsclocks31@cs.com . Bob

    Bob if you go to nawcc home page and click on EMART then go to services their is someone their who advertises the repair and restoration of wood movements- a number of people advertise in the regular mart - John Bruno being one of the best- but one tooth is not a real difficult repair to do your self-- you can cut down into the wheel and put in a piece of matching wood and file the tooth to shape
