Basic Adjustments or Parts ($50-$100)
Many problems simply require adjustment by an experienced clockmaker. We perform basic adjustments in our shop (often while you wait). These repairs typically cost between $50 to $100.
Service, Oil, and Adjust ($160+)
The movement in your clock should be oiled every four to six years. We remove the clock movement in order to oil the bushings, grease the mainsprings, regulate the pendulum, and perform other necessary adjustments. We use a high quality synthetic clock oil and a grease designed specifically for clock springs. There are over 100 points in a clock movement that need to be oiled!
A full restoration includes complete disassembly of the movement for cleaning and oiling, plus repair, and replacement of worn bushings, pivots, springs, and other parts. Cosmetic restoration can include silvering dials, polishing and lacquering brass parts, and even restoring clock cases. Our skilled clockmakers are experienced in the centuries-old profession of clock repair and can service any mechanical clock. Each overhaul comes with a two year guarantee.
House Calls ($200+)
We can come to your home to service and adjust large clocks. We oil and grease the movement, level the case, set the clock in beat and make other necessary adjustments. If your clock has stopped after being moved, we can get it back up and running in no time! We carry specialized tools and many common spare parts in our van. Additional fees may apply for house calls outside the Tulsa Metro area.
Clock Moving ($350+)
We offer specialized moving services for large clocks that no moving company can provide. We transport your cherished heirlooms in a van that is customized for moving clocks, with specialized boxes and packing materials on hand. Each move includes service which is required to set the clock back in beat after transportation.
Is Your Mainspring Over-wound?
It is a common myth that you can over-wind a clock. If your clock has stopped moving, it’s likely that your mainspring has become worn, dirty and/or dried up. This causes friction and makes it difficult or impossible for it to release power within the clock movement. Once your clock has been serviced or overhauled, you will be able to wind your clock without any problems. If you mainspring actually breaks, that is not your fault, but simply the result of a worn mainspring.
