This antique banjo clock was brought in for repair to the bottom of the case.
It looked like someone had glued it before but couldn’t get it together properly.
In an effort to save the original parts I first disassembled the broken bottom.
With the use of a heat gun I then scraped off the old glue from each piece.
Next, the pieces were glued back together and sanded flush.
Once repaired, the bottom was re-installed, touched up, and polished to match.
The old corner blocks were also glued back into place, and the interior was then cleaned and touched up.
After some other minor repairs to the case, this banjo clock was ready for the clocksmith to restore the movements.
Repair service for this banjo clock case was completed for a Sharon CT client.
