Here is episode 3 of the Buchanan clock overhaul.

I took your advice and got in front of the camera!

Hi Bob,

Thanks for the feedback. I’m new to the videos and still a bit self conscious about the sound of my voice on them!

I will make sure episode 3 has more talking though.

It's Autosol watered down to almost a liquid with Parafin. Your quite correct, 'restoring' is probably not quite the right term, however, it is a bit more than a service. The client has requested that the clock be brought back to as new condition, and as it is now about 15 years old and has been moved a couple of times it does have a good amount of tarnish and handling marks/fingerprints all over it. Mechanically there are some areas of damage which will be covered in later episodes.

Hi all,

I am currently working on a sublime double pendulum regulator made by Buchanan of Chelmsford.

I am documenting my work on youtube, but will in due course write a blog post about it. For now, here is the latest youtube episode.

I agree with Clive, that has a feeling of Aciera about it. An F2 (ish) with modifications perhaps?

Hi to everyone on this fascinating and most helpful forum.

My name is Tommy and I am a clockmaker in Cheshire.

I scratch build clocks both as bespoke new builds and as replicas.

I also carry out restoration on some fascinating clocks and chronometers.

My workshop is something of a geek fest of Swiss and English machines.

Looking forward to chatting with you all.

All the very best,
