A Howard Miller Grandfather Clock case on its back. We had to re attach the bottom of the clock, due to one of the weights come off its cable and had fallen.
We are able to re attach the bottom of Grandfather Clocks out at the customers home. Once the old staples are remover we use a nail gun to secure the bottom of the Grandfather Clock using small brads. The bottom of the Grandfather Clock on newer model Grandfather Clocks are designed to drop out when the weight falls. Older Grandfather Clocks and smaller Grandmother Clocks are not designed this way. When a weight falls off the chain or cable, the weight will sometimes create a large hole or crack the bottom piece of the Grandfather Clock. Many customers, while winding a Grandfather Clock will help the weight along by lifting the weight up slightly, when they finish winding the clock and let go of the weight, the weight will become unhooked from the chain or cable allowing it to fall to the bottom of the Grandfather Clock, not only damaging the bottom of the Grandfather Clock but also damaging the weight as well.
