Clocks all working fine now – new hands, new varnish – and ready to be delivered. Tested them by hanging them on my workshop wall.

By an amazing coincidence I have 2 large clocks to repair. The first is an historic Indian Railways replica clock – it needed some dismantling, sanding down and re-varnishing. The very same week another customer brought me a clock which had fallen off the wall and broken.

We’ve only moved 5 miles away, leaving Greens Norton for Syresham. So Mervyn is still based in South Northants.
