Clock Mainspring Let-Down Tool Set of 2

Kit Description

Our Clock Cleaning and Oiling Kit-Weight Driven offers the basic items to clean a clock movement without disassembly. Although cleaning without disassembly is not as effective as breaking down the movement, but it is sufficient in many situations. 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 without having to learn an intense amount of clock repair information or Horology. Ultimately the goal to cleaning a clock movement is to remove the old oil and put new oil in its place. The reason being that the old oil solidifies and becomes an abrasive rather than a lubricant. Oil that solidifies creates wear to the movements outer plates and eventually causes too much friction for the clock to run.

Clock Cleaning Solution

Clock Cleaning Kit includes One pint of clock cleaning solution concentrate with ammonia that you can use to clean movements by hand, as well as an 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 comes 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.
Clock

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.
Clock

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.
Clock

Oiler with Oil

The oiler is full of oil and are the size of a fat pen. Apply a small amount of oil to anything that has friction after cleaning off the old oil. This is enough clock oil to do many clock movements.
Clock

Clock Gear / Hand Puller

Use this tool to pull gears or hands off of 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.
Clock

Clock Level

Use the level 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 it's 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 we usually suggest a cleaning anyhow.
Clock

Mainspring Let Down

The let down releases the power in a wound up mainspring. Key goes into the chuck and the chuck goes into the handle, this way the power of the spring can be let down with ease. It does the same job as the let down with all the chucks. If someone were to take a spring driven clock apart without letting down the mainsprings, bad things may happen. The movement would get ruined and possible hand injury. You must select "spring driven kit" below in order to add the let down tool to the kit.

I have a grandfather clock that keeps time but won’t chime. It’s set to chime on the quarter hour. I believe it has residue from years of dirt and grime plus old oil. Do you make something I could spray on the movement to remove the crud ?

G’day,
I have a Seth Thomas mantel clock with movement # 125. The chime part winds and functions, but the time part does not work. The spring winds, but the balance wheel will not move on its own. I can move the wheel, but it re-centers and stops. The escapement does move when I rotate the balance wheel back and forth. Hair spring is intact and staked where it should be. I’ve worked on several older clocks with good success, but this is my first with a floating balance wheel. Parts or a used replacement 125 movement seems unlikely or impossible to find. It may not be worth it to fix the movement vs finding a more readily available used 120 or alternative movement. Your thoughts please? I am able to disassemble/re-assemble this movement. Thanx for your help.

I have a Howard Miller with a Hermle 451-050H movement (by your guide 1995?) and 94mm pendulum. This seems odd to me as the clock has a brass plate saying it was registered to a the original owner in 1989. The timekeeping is excellent. The chime and the gong are not working. After moving the clock, I noticed the chime had tripped and started but not finished. Therefore, I’m betting it just needs cleaned. I want to do my own clock repair and am interested in total disassembly of the movement. Is the “Clock Cleaning and Oiling Kit” with the included e-book sufficient to get me through the entire process? Will I need additional parts?

I have a 60th Anniversary Edition Howard Miller Grandfather clock. For some reason, the “Fly” does not move at all. Should it not be moving all the time? In addition, the Hour Hand drops straight down and won’t stay on the shaft. The second hand dial, every time the hand is straight down, it stops. If I move the shaft, it works again. Any advice would be appreciated.

I have a Franz Hermle clock movement, the model is a 1051-030SK with a 66 cm pendulum the manufacture date is indicated as an “I” the movement has a second hand and an eight hammer chime. What would be the replacement movement? I am in Canada and with the money exchange and shipping I feel it would be better to get a new works then have the works overhauled.

I have a King Arthur Clock with the Hermil 1151 Movement. Clock purchased in 1983. The chimes have not operated in years. After reading a couple articles I spent the past couple days cleaning and oiling. I have the chimes working not with one small problem. It does not play all the tones. In Westminster at the quarter hour it only plays the first three tones. The hammer on the forth does not strike the chime. Half hour, it plays four tones – the fourth one from the quarter hour and the first three. When I touch the wheel, it immediately releases the arm. It is the same for St. Michael and Whittington. Sure it is only a minor adjustment, but…. Any help would be appreciated.

I have a weight driven grandfather clock made from a Emperor Clock kit with German movement. Does using the cleaning solution require taking apart the movement or I can use Qtip or lint-less tissue? There are some old oil in the gears and axles, would the solution remove them? How long do I need to leave the solution there before wiping it clean and re-oil?

I bought the clock cleaning kit, the web site says mix 6 parts water to 1 part solution, However on the bottle of the solution it says 9 parts water to 1 part solution. Which one is correct.
