JeffAs someone who does clock and watch repair, it is really amazing to me how the early clock and watchmakers worked. In addition to not having our 'modern' measuring tools, and lathes, drills, etc., the early makers had to make their own machines, do the math for gear and cam calculations, do the layout for a small space and on an on. They had to make the drills, taps, dies, gears, pinions, shafts, springs, it boggles the mind. Many of them made things that had never been made before, so they were working purely with their imagination and skill.
Clock shops cleaned, oiled and bushed clocks long before ultrasonic cleaners were invented.Jeff, hope you don't mind giving a bit of advice on clocks. Sorry about stealing your thread Mike.
My 30+ year old grandfather clock movement from Murray Clock Craft in Toronto quit a while ago. Would it be worth buying an ultrasonic cleaner to do the movement? Could think of other uses for one, cleaning paint guns, carburetors, etc.
