Recently, I inherited an antique clock from my mom. Like many antiques when I received the clock, it was in disarray. The case was broken; it was overly polished with some type of wood polish. Also the clock itself was not working for some reason.
Thus, after some tender lovein’ care, and buying some replacement parts I was able to get the clock back in working order. However, it still needs to see a clock repair man because the timing is still off. Hopefully one day it will tell time correctly.
Never throw away little antiques like this one. You never know how little money you have to put into them to make them beautiful again.
