Quick Clock Tip

Wooden clocks are like people in a way. They do best in a room that's comfortable for everyday living, not too hot or cold, and not too damp or dry. These clocks are susceptible to extreme fluctuations in humidity and temperature. And just like other fine pieces of furniture, the fluctuations can cause the wood to swell and shrink.

Before #clocks became affordable to the masses, the #hourglass was a common staple of timekeeping. Furthermore, the hourglass has endured as a symbol of time in general. Learn more about the hourglass in this blog article on our website.

Maybe the idea of the hourglass came about when a beachcomber, long ago, scooped up a handful of sand and watched it slowly trickle out between the fingers. It could’ve happened that way. Well, no one really knows how it was “invented” or who invented it. Some say that the hourglass, which is also k…

Could it be that listening to the steady tick-tock of a clock and seeing its pendulum swing to and fro may ‘feed’ a child’s brain with the “food” of rhythm? Are kids attracted to clocks partly because they sense that clocks are good for them? We had good reasons to think so. In fact, in …

Am wondering if you have ever heard of this sort of thing before. We have this rather cheap desk clock from Walmart that we got as a gift from a dear (elderly lady) friend. Well the clock is battery powered and worked great for a while then just stopped. We left it on the shelf of our living room as a memento. Well we got a new wall clock for the living room and installed it on the wall next to where the other now stopped clock was resting. After installing the new clock the Walmart one started to work again. Odd. We set it and it ran perfectly for several months not missing a minute. Well my wife decided it was time to move it to our guest room where we had originally intended on placing it. Within a few minutes it stopped. Yes very odd. We moved it to our bed room the next evening and just as a joke I put my analog alarm clock next to it and low and behold that thing started backup and is keeping perfect time again. So the question is, have you ever heard of this before?
My Grandfather Clock Just stopped working.What could be wrong with it.How do I make it work again.I sure do miss it.
I find now my clock does not tick right. It slow get softer and softer then slowly louder and loader. It seems to be in the same sequence. Also I use to be able to wind it every Sunday morningg. Now it stops before the week. usually 8 hrs short of the week cycle. if you can give me some insight it would be appreciated. Thanks
I have a number of mantle clocks, a few of which sometimes skip ahead on the hour chime, for example they strike 1, then 2, then 3 and 4 at the same time, and are now an hour ahead. Is there a quick fix for this? Thanks!
