I use a Weller solder iron to burn off a stubborn wart that I have tried to freeze off many times and failed. After the video are many close up photos of the healing process.
In part 1 I’m only going to cover evaluating the mechanism to determine how dirty and if any pivots are wore out. If pivots are wore out they will need to be bushed with new slaves but re-bushing is not covered in this video.
In this video I evaluate my grandfather clock’s hammer mechanism to determine if I can correct for very poor sounding chimes caused by wore out leather pads on the gong hammers.
I will also show my clock test stand that lets me fully run, evaluate and service my clock mechanism on the bench.
