CLOCK CLEANING KIT

Our Clock cleaning Kit offers the basic items required to clean a clock movement without disassembly. Cleaning without disassembly is not as effective as breaking down the movement, but it is sufficient in most cases. Not everyone is ready to break down their clock movement and put it back together. This kit is for the person who would like to do a simple clock cleaning with out having to learn an intense amount of clock repair information or Horology. The goal to cleaning a clock movement is to remove old oil that has solidified and put new oil in its place. Solidified clock oil creates wear to the movements outer plates and eventually causes to much friction for the clock to run.


CLOCK CLEANING SOLUTION

Clock Cleaning Kit includes One pint of concentrated ammoniated clock cleaning solution that can be used to clean movements by hand, or to use with a ultrasonic cleaning machine. Just mix 1 part of this solution to 6 parts of water to clean old clock oil from the movement. The E-book that is included with this kit has instructions on how to clean the clock movement in the best and safest way, so refer to it before starting the cleaning process.

BRASS BRISTLE BRUSH

Beautiful brass bristle brush which brings bright beauty to big bulky brass plates. This is to be used on stubborn spots of grime, to be used with cleaning solution.

VISION VISOR

Clock Cleaning Kit includes This magnifier can be worn over glasses. This fits over the head and will be the most convenient magnification for inspecting important components of the clock movement and parts. This quality tool is made here in USA and is a must for this type of work. This flips up over the head when there is an interruption in your work and has 2 1/2 magnification power.

OILER WITH OIL

The oiler is full of oil and are the size of a fat pen. A Small amount of oil gets applied to anything that has friction after the old oil is cleaned off. This is enough clock oil to do many clock movements. This is enough oil to do about 7 clocks!

CLOCK GEAR / HAND PULLER

This is used to pull gears or hands off clocks in a straight and safe fashion. With 400 day clocks in particular, the hour hand sometimes is difficult to get off. Doing it by hand could increase the hour hand holes diameter and the hand will not fit back on correctly because it would be touching the dial. Using this simple tool prevents this from happening. Included

CLOCK LEVEL

The level is needed to be sure the clock stays in beat from one place to another. Learn to set the clock in beat by the directions in the E-book, making sure the clock is level when it is being done. Then keep a level with the clock and where ever the clock goes, as long as its level, it will be in beat. By being in beat, it means to have an even tick-tock-tick-tock rather than ticktock---ticktock---ticktock. Often many repairs ONLY need to be set in beat to work - however a cleaning is usually suggested anyhow.

NOTE: Spring driven clocks would need the below tool

LET DOWN TOOL (Spring Driven Kit)

This is a wooden tool that will go over your key in a spring driven clock and allow you to release the power of the mainsprings. If the power of the mainsprings are not released in a spring driven clock during the cleaning process then they risk breaking and damaging the clock movement. It is also a tool that is needed to disassemble any spring driven movement. This is really a ring clamp, but it works very well for this purpose. To get this tool added, you must select "spring driven kit" below
