A Braintree Grandfather Clock Repaired!

20161107_173511This can be a clock thats simply been serviced and repaired on my testing jigg. Im narrowing down the accuracy prepared for supply in a few days.

I didnt know Braintree  had a clock maker, “J Wing – Braintree”, and anybody who does know – please e-mail me at admin@braintreeclockrepairs.co.uk 

What I’ll say is that the clock is just not fantastically made. The pendulum, which is clearly unique on account of its higher fixing, is simply too heavy. This has triggered loads of put on on the escapement cog which is actually on its approach out – 10 years maybe.

When it may not preserve its arc (which fades because the cog wears) it would want a brand new escapement however thats an costly job I solely do the place needed. – i.e. the clock merely wont work with out it.

Its acquired fairly a pleasant face on it in good situation. It was widespread to get these submanufactured on the time so Wing didnt do the portray – simply the motion and presumably the case however even that’s unlikely for a provincial maker who might purchase in these parts affordably. The clock is about 1790 I might guess.
