Please, Please, Please Note:

We simply do not have the time to answer individual questions about clocks and barometers; our assistance must be limited to these articles.

We do not offer appraisal services, and we no longer repair barometers.

Although clocks and barometers are innately logical and there is often the temptation to attempt home repairs, it is always best to get the opinion of a qualified professional.
