Think I should oil my clock but no clock oil in this town.

Customer Question

Think I should oil my clock but no clock oil in this town. What alternative oil should I use?
JA: I throw away my watch whenever it stops moving. Some people love fixing timepieces. Differences like that make the world go round I guess - maybe that's clockwork too. Please tell me everything you can so the Clock Technician can help you best.
Customer: My Howard Miller clock model 610-948 is 10 years old and I have blown dust out but would like to oil it but no clock oil available here. Would a synthetic spray lubricant do?
JA: Is there anything else the Clock Technician should be aware of?
Customer: Idont think so

Hi, My name is ***** ***** it is my pleasure to assist you. Yes that is the Stewart Grandfather Clock. You can use sewing machine oil or 3 in one oil but use very sparingly I would not use a spray because you can not pinpoint control and the spray would cover a needless area and if you do not feel comfortable doing this yourself let me know your zip code location and I can locate a clock repair shop in your area that makes house calls that can fix your clock. Thanks Mike
