Oiling Clocks

If your grandfather clock runs erratic or fails to keep proper time your clock needs to be serviced. This is a must and should be done every year or at least two years. We find that routine maintenance including oiling, timing and adjustments of the movement may prevents any big and costly problems from occurring in the long run.

A grandfather clock is a family heirloom that takes a reasonable amount of care and attention. Every few years, the clock might start to get sluggish, have pendulum movement difficulties, lose time or even stop. These are tell-tale signs that it's time for expert servicing. An annual service call can prevent problems from occurring. Parts do wear out eventually, as do a car’s engine components.

The key to maintaining the life of your grandfather clock is routine inspection, which includes oiling, movement adjustment and tuming.
