Default Rebuilt another cuckoo clock

A good friend was diagnosed with lymphoma and my last visit to his house he handed me a box of cuckoo clocks. Parts and pieces is more like it.
He's doing good and it seems the chemo has put him in remission.



Here is the 8 day clock.

This is Jim holding up the clocks

Mechanical clocks are like a work of art. Fun.

Thanks Trent.


The weights are in for the next clock. I'm going to start it this weekend.

Sad.

My grandparents left me with some and I have memories from when I lived with them. Instantly this thread hit me in the heart.

The clock i have is in a box. The bird is semi injured, I believe my grandfather tried to save him once before.

Great job saving these. I need to find a local guy to fix mine so I can mount it proudly in my house and show it to my son.

If the movement works fix it yourself. They aren't very complicated just be patient.
I buy parts here and here.
