Clock Care Ltd has repaired and restored many clocks over the years. Here is just some of the work we have done.
New parts made
Cad drawings used to assist production of some parts
Using the same tooth pitch for both the hour and the quarters, in this case meant that the contact point for the quarter rack had to be closer to the fulcrum, because the steps on the quarter rack are shallow. Meaning the rack tail would not align with the centre of the snail as is commonly the case.
Blank racks in position to check tooth pitch against a scriber point height gauge.
New stop work

Dial and automate work
Due to the condition of the brass and to conserve the original paintwork I decided to replace both Adam and Eve using the existing ones as templates, along with Adam's new arm and to make a complete serpent and collet as this was missing. I designed and manufactured automate driving levers. Then made new driving lever to operate the age of the moon dial nags head and lever.
New Automata Parts

Control linkage to drive automata work, there was an existing hole in the pallet arbor for the driving lever.
