Supplying Spares for your DIY clock repair

As you know from my blog I encourage my customers to do a bit of work on their clocks themselves where it is wise to do so. That said, I dont get involved in other peoples projects at an operational level;  we either do the clock or you do the clock!.  I have a similar approach on spares. I dont sell them!. That said Ill help you out if I can, I just cant afford to spend any time on supplying spares and its more than likely that if I sell a component I end up needing it myself a couple of days later.

I dont to this, I dont do that, I dont dont dont. Not exactly positive is it. My point is that Im a helpful individual, as many of my reviews point out,  as I enjoy the diagnosis and the individuality of each job I work on. If you need a suspension spring for your Smiths Mantle or any of the things I have plenty of stock of, Im more than happy to help you out. The only condition is that you come and collect it. I run the Saturday clock clinic now and part of that is just replacing a pin, washer, spring or quartz movement for an affordable price while you wait.

So I dont supply spares. But I do to help local customers out with the same ethos applied to my Saturday “walk in” service generally. If you come in on a Saturday and its something I can do for you while you wait your bill is likely to be between “Look, its a washer and a pin. I just cant charge you for that – bring it back wen it needs some proper work and Ill make my money for actually doing something” or  £30 to £60.
