WANTED. Clock Repair in Southern California.


My name is Joe Polisar and currently live in southern California (Garden Grove).

I am trying to find a reputable clock repair to take this Westminster Longcase Grandfather Clock to here in southern California.

This clock has been in my family since 1956. There are 5 chimes and 2 counterweights.
The front and side glass are all beveled. The clock seems to be in excellent shape, no scratches or scars and the finish is excellent. My parents bought a home in Great Neck, NY in 1956 and purchased the clock from the couple (original owners) who they bought the home from.

I'm guessing this clock was built in the 40's or even earlier.

The original owners were from Germany and they purchased the home in the 1920's so I can only assume this clock was made sometime between 1920 and 1956.
I've been told probably the 1940's.
This clock was in working condition while we were growing up and had regular maintenance every year (cleaning, lubrication etc).

However once my father passed away in 1985 it just sat where you see it in these photos.

In fact it never moved from that spot from 1956 until we sold the house in 2011. The clock is now located with my brother in Albuquerque, NM and we can't seem to find anyone capable of working on it.
My uneducated guess is it needs a complete going over. Any suggestions would be deeply appreciated,

Joe Polisar
