Why trust Master Clock Repair to restore your fine Tubular Bell Clock movement?
First of all, be sure to check the "Qualifications" page for all of Michael's credentials.
Secondly, it is important to understand that there are very few people who can say they have significant experience with these large, somewhat complex tubular bell mechanisms. There are many common clocks that pass through the average repair shop over and over again allowing a repairman to gain a great deal of experience over a relatively short period of time. This is not true of tubular bell clocks in general and Herschede clocks to be specific. This is due to the fact that these clocks were very expensive and very few people were able to afford them. Consequently they end up in repair shops only sporadically.
To give you an idea of how "rare" they are, we repair approximately 1000 clocks per year yet only see 5 to 10 tubular bell clocks during that same period. Fortunately, after 33 years in the trade, Michael has had the privilege of repairing, relatively speaking, a large number of these clocks.
As a result of his experience he teaches a class on the finer and often overlooked points of successfully restoring the Herschede movement.
