A long case clock I've owned for nearly 40 years requires repair, and in the spirit of lock down, I thought I'd have a crack at it myself. The first time I've attempted any clock repair that requires significant dismantling.
The clock itself is I think mid 19th century, full height, painted face. The engineering quality suggests the 'bog standard' end of the market.
The problem is that when I attempt to wind the chiming train, the ratchet doesn't catch and the weight descends immediately. Visual inspection indicates that a small black leaf spring has shattered.
