To all my Students and Subscribers,
Wondering how to fix a miss drilled Bushing?
If you had used a Preacher Tool beforehand, you pop out the bad bushing, install a Blind Bushing (one without a pivot hole) position the Preacher and create a Divot on the blind bushing. Use this Divot to locate the original hole, drill and broach to pivot size and your done.
This tool will handle pivot holes up to 2.3mm
The Preacher is like a seat belt, it only works if you use it before the Oops happens.
Watch ourVideo on YouTube to see how it works

Hi Al, I can't thank you enough for this great video on repairing a wooden movement!! So far everything is going great and as you can see by the pic. I just molded my first wooden clock teeth. What a great way to do this!!!!!!!! I know it's only two teeth but hey you gotta start some where!! thanks Al
Really enjoy your cd on wooden clock mworks . You have done a great job***Hi Al
Happy New Year.
Purchased your Repairing the Eli Terry 8 Day Wooden Clock Movement.
I can't tell you how excited I was to get the wooden clock movement running again.
I'm sure it had been decades since it was last running. Now, it is merrily running!
I replaced bushings with Hard Rock Maple and repaired broken leafs on the wheels
with the techniques taught in the video. Your techniques are precious.
Thank you, take care, Thomas
I watched your DVD on doing bushing work by hand & was so inspired, my wife & I drove to Merritts & purchased all the tools needed per your video. Today I put 6 bushings in a top plate & 5 in the back plate, put it all back together & it hasn't stopped once all day. This movement had been struggling and would stop off and on every couple hours. I can't thank you enough for sharing your knowledge. I don't think I would have ever attempted any of this withoutyour DVD's.
Hope all is well,Paul
Viewed the first 2 1/2 hours. You might be interested in knowing that your techniques are very similar to my hand surgery practice!!! When I take a hand apart I use the same techniques and thought processes. You have to remember how it came apart in order to put it back together again...And not have any extra parts when you finish!!! I have no doubt that I will get the chimes working correctly with your help.
By the way, I doubt very much that the clock repairman in Florida went through it with the precision you do. I will be checking bushings to make sure they have been properly inspected.
J.******Hi Al,I just finished the 2-DVD lesson on the 1913 Gilbert that you sent. I must say that you did an outstanding job! I really enjoyed watching you work your way through each hurdle that you came across. You demonstrated that a person can solve many problems if they will just think them through. This DVD is really helping me with the Gilbert 1912 Mission mantel clock that I’m working on. It’s sort of like having your teacher there with you, showing you what to do next.My grandfather collected and repaired clocks when I was young. I doubt that he would have ever imagined that you could learn clock repair by watching clips over this thing called the “internet”, or watch full length training material on DVD. What a world!Thanks again!SW********Dear al_taka3,I purchased three of your DVDs. One for Junghans, one for New Haven and one for installing bushings. I have bushed several movements since then using your technics. They have been most helpful to me and i thought you should has made my work on clocks much more enjoyable.
