Examining, Disassembling, Cleaning, and Oiling a Grandfather Clock

I’m anxious to see part 4 of this series when ToddFun reassembles and sets up the clock again for movement, but in the meantime here are the first 3 parts – shown across 4 lengthy videos – of his series cleaning and repairing a grandfather clock. If you grew up with a grandfather clock (as I did) then you know they’re lovely home furnishings, mechanical wonders, and pre-cellphone they served the ultimate function of beautifully displaying accurate time (at my childhood home the grandfather clock was immediately adjacent to the front door, whose pleasant chime could be heard from almost every room in the house).


 

 

 

 
I’ll be sure to blog part 4 when it goes live! In the meantime also be sure to check out some detail shots here on ToddFun’s blog.


Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
