Antique clock repair, restoration and maintenance
What's the difference between RCR and other shops?
At Rymer's Clock Repair, I pay attention to detail. Some shops don't disassemble your clock; they just run it in an ultrasonic cleaner which takes maybe an hour. At Rymer's Clock Repair, I take it apart completely and clean each gear and the holes it runs in by hand! I also polish the pivots so that it doesn't wear as fast. If there are worn holes, I repair them so that your clock won't fail in the coming months! Not all shops do proper hole repair either. There are shortcuts that actually damage your clock that I refuse to take! All this takes at least 8 hours to do! And that's not the end of the story; your clock is tested for at least a week to make sure not only that it doesn't fail but that it keeps time (doesn't run fast or slow). So if you want your clock in hands that truly care and pay close attention to detail, choose Rymer's Clock Repair!

Why should I have my clock serviced?
Clocks take only a drop of oil on each pivot point. After a few years, the oil can get dirty and become sticky; not a good lubricant. Without good lubrication, friction is increased. With more friction, the clock may stop. If it doesn't stop, the holes will wear and the gears will not run true. Repairing worn holes adds cost to the job, so regular maintenance will save you money in the long run!
