The clock runs fine...

The clock runs fine but the hands won't turn can you help me

Technician's Assistant: 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.

Can I get back to you a little later have to take care of something so I can consentrate on my clock it's old but I love it thanks very much Phil

Technician's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Clock Technician should know?

Don't know I think it's very old from Germany also it's a large clock and looks as if it has had a rough life runs good but the hands just don't turn
