Re: [T3] clock

<x-charset iso-8859-1>Hi all,

Well, I removed the anti-tampering seal, opened up the clock and gave it a
good squirt of WD40. I know some people say you shouldn't use this, but
other people swear by it (I've been reading all the list archives).

Anyway, the result is that I now have TWO completely functional clocks. The
junk clock that I bought for $8 on eBay works too! It is really rusty and
the mechanism is partly detached from the casing, but it works. Just goes to
show that the Germans built high quality machinery.

I am aware that WD40 isn't really a lubricant, but it does a great job of
unsticking and cleaning things. I'll see if I can get some proper clock oil
for more long-term lubrication.

Regards, and thanks for the tips,

Daniel Baum
