Clock Restoration

Marquetry longcase
Early 18thC longcase
A complete restoration service  to longcase clocks is offered, including repairs to movement, case and dial.
Wall clocks and bracket clocks of various types are equally catered for.  Certain other clocks and smaller scale clocks begin to stray outside of the available skills, tools and materials in the workshop but these are happily inspected incase help can be given.
All aspects of restoration to longcase clocks are undertaken including: 

1. The restoration of the cases, involving much of the same principles as applied to antique furniture.

2.  Dial restoration, brass and painted dials,  also 'makers' names found and referenced. 

 3.  Movement restoration, including cleaning, repairs to all parts of the movement, re setting of chiming, calendar or moon phase motion work, supply of parts such as weights, bells, pendulums etc.
