Oiling is Key to Maintaining the Longevity of Your Clock

oil

Just like regular oil changes extend the life of your car’s engine, regular clock oiling extends the life of your clock. Oiling your clock every three years will help prevent expensive clock repairs and ensure that your clock will last for the generations to come. Imagine never changing your car’s oil; it wouldn’t take long for the engine to seize. Without regular oiling your clock will end up requiring a major service, or possibly a new movement.

The good news is that our clock experts are here to help!  We have serviced many thousands of clocks and will keep your heirloom in tip top shape.  If you’re handy, we are happy to teach you how to oil it yourself and we have professional clock oiling kits available for purchase, with special synthetic clock oil in a syringe applicator.  Stop by Ye Olde Clock and Gift Shoppe in Dallas, PA or call us at 570.675.6507 for more information.
