Restoration of a Musical Black forest Cuckoo Clock

 

Clock case as taken in, missing most of its numerals 

 

The movement parts after their first clean

Wooden clock frame showing inserted  brass bushes before cleaning. Some repairs were found to be necessary on the wooden frame of this clock due to misuse 

This picture shows the broken cuckoo bellows and hands before repair,--not an easy job to repair bone hands but not impossible, the same goes for the broken bellows. I always strive to keep clocks original rather than replacing with new even if the cost is much greater.

The musical part--(missing the barrel) there are many bent pins to straighten but the comb is complete, a new barrel will be made to replace the missing one, when finished the clock will play four different tunes 

Testing the time side after repair
