Any mechanical clock question - no battery clock questions and no appraisals. 40 years as a professional clock repair person- still a full time clock repair service owner. Attach a photo if possible and note all markings on the rear of the mechanism- thanks

I will answer any clock repair questions to the best of my ability but not appraisal questions.
