Got an old clock in the attic that once belonged to Grandma or Uncle Charlie that is not running and is just gathering dust? You might want to consider getting it running again by taking part in a class conducted at the City of Fairfax Senior Center. The scope of this class is to provide students with the knowledge of clock functions, principles, and control of various types of escapements and striking mechanisms. The class includes instruction on disassembly, cleaning, oiling, reassembling components, replacing parts, making simple repairs and time regulating. This course is designed for hands-on participation by the students working on their own clocks. It is aimed toward the typical American 8-day, spring or weight driven mantle/wall clock with or without strike.
