Clock Repair Dvd Video - Repairing The Seth Thomas 89 Mantel Clock Movement For SaleWe Ship Overseas, Free Shipping in the USA
To all my Subscribers,
The Seth Thomas 89 Series was a corner stone movement for the many variations of ST American Clocks. Time and Strike, Bim Bam, Sonora Chime just to name a few. The basic movement is the same as is the repair process.
When was the last time you picked up a clock and wondered what it'd be like to fix it. What is it that clockmakers know that seems Magical? How hard could it be to learn? Could I really do this?
At less than half the cost of other Training Video's you can experience it for yourself. The video puts you closeup at the workbench instructed every step of the way. Each video takes you from start to finish on a specific clock so your not flooded with information applicable to other clocks.My teaching philosophy,I want to amazemy students with how much they can learn in a shorter amount of time.
Welcome to my Clock Repair Series featuring the Seth Thomas 89 Movement. Over 2 hours long.
There are hundreds of Clocks waiting to be repaired and you'll find them at yard sales, sales and even your own attic or basement.Increase their value and beauty so they can be enjoyed by the next generation.
I created this Movement Specific Video to help you through the repairprocess and theory of clock movement operations. Iexplain the repair process by putting myself in your position. For your first repairI would recommend a more robustAmerican Time& Strike such as the Seth Thomas ST89 spring driven movement as is shown in this video. This movement is very popular andused in many different clockcases. Manytechniques learned here are similar in other Time & Strike Movements. In the main menu you'll have the option of watching it straight throughor skip to any of the 70 Chapters.
German and French Movements are more delicate and should only be attempted afterAmerican Time & Strike Movements become a Piece of Cake.
I'll showyou the steps such asExamination, Letting down the mainsprings,Splittingthe plates, Cleaning and polishing the working components, Repairs as needed such as Bushing Work, Assembly and Timing.

Let me show you what it would be like to pickup a Clock and see in your mind how it works,the many wheels turning so slowly that it takes a week or more to unwind. Taking it a step further, how could these wheels be made to run so precisely and why do they stop after so many years of running. You'll begin to recognize the worn area's and know how to repair it back to original health. This is what I show and explain in my Video's.Make yourself aGift of my Video's and see a new world of how things work and a Trade you will never forget.
I look forward to hearing from you, like this Great response from a returning Student!!Hi Al,I just finished the 2-DVD lesson on the 1913 Gilbert that you sent. I must say that you did an outstanding job! I really enjoyed watching you work your way through each hurdle that you came across. You demonstrated that a person can solve many problems if they will just think them through. This DVD is really helping me with the Gilbert 1912 Mission mantel clock that I’m working on. It’s sort of like having your teacher there with you, showing you what to do next.My grandfather collected and repaired clocks when I was young. I doubt that he would have ever imagined that you could learn clock repair by watching clips over this thing called the “internet”, or watch full length training material on DVD. What a world!Thanks again!SW********Hello
