Clock Cleaning Kit-Weight Driven Description

Our Clock Cleaning 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

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. 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.
Clock

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.
Clock

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.
Clock

Mainspring Let Down

Used to release 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. To get this tool added, you must select "spring driven kit" below.

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.
