Does any one work on these clocks, for fun or profit? I am looking for books to read on repairs. Any suggestions?
I stumbled into this hobby by accident a few weeks ago. Found an old clock I had forgot about. The 'shop' wanted an 'estimated' $250 to fix it. It isn't an antique and had no sentimental value, so I tore into it. The best way to describe a cuckoo clock's workings would be 'complicatingly simple'!
I did fix it, (re-thread the chains, replaced bellows, replaced trip wires, replaced the hands, fixed the cuckoo's beak) and now I am hooked! I want to read up on the subject.
