Bringing Cuckoos Back From Extinction, One Clock at a Time!
My Granddaughters say, "If your cuckoo is sick, our Papa will make it tick"!
Whether your cuckoo clock has been silent for 50 years or its brand new
and the cat pulled it off the wall,  finding a clock shop that will repair it can
be frustrating.  Most clock shops won't take in cuckoos because they are
time consuming.  When they do take them in they will replace your old
movement and bellows with new ones.  This saves them time and they will
just add the cost of the new parts to their labor. Your old bellows and
movements will
wind up on eBay.

Don't fall for the latest scam.  There are some people advertising to oil and
adjust your clock for a low price.  If that is all your clock needs, save the
shipping and just ask me.  The gimmick price is a guaranteed loser because
you will be charged for any and everything else that they can get away with.
I don't work that way.  My workshop is tooled up for just cuckoos. Cuckoo
clocks are time consuming because you have to remove the bellows "the
coo coo whistles", wires, the bird, weights, chains, and music box just to
get to the movement.  These are all crammed into a tiny case and their
adjustment is critical.  That is where experience with cuckoos pays off.  

Now, here is the rub.  Generally old cuckoos have deteriorated fabric on the
bellows causing the whistles not to work without an airtight fit.  I replace
the fabric on the bellows if needed.  I won't try to sell you new tops or new
bellows, I fix the originals.  The same applies to the movement.  I totally
disassemble your movement and clean it ultrasonically.  I polish all the
pivots and check the front and back plates for wear.  I will put as many
bushings, (bearings in the plates that the wheels rotate on) in the plates as
your clock's movement needs to make it in essence brand new.  
Before I
put it back in the clock, I will run your movement for 1 week on a test stand
connected to a computer
.  It will count every tick and every strike of the
clock, and spot problems if any.  After, I reassemble your clock, I will time
it, set the clock's beat,  and then I will run the clock on our wall for an
additional two weeks before shipping it safely back to you.  I will include
full instructions on setting up your clock.
