A very sick cuckoo indeed…

This ancient Black Forest cuckoo clock is residing in my father’s house, and it sounded really, really sick, like it had OD’ed on NEMBUTAL … so I was obliged to fix it. (My father is 88 and seems to get his cues from the cuckoo these days… 😉 Well actually he can’t see so well but his hearing is pretty good.) It was taking like 30 seconds to perform each cuckoo sequence, so at midnight the performance just went on and on… and slammed the door open and shut each time besides! OMG! What a racket!

I checked out this great website for parts and repair tips- http://www.clockworks.com/cuckooprt.html trying to figure out what to do…

But luckily a little squirt of WD-40 set the cuckoo back to normal… heh heh just like viagra! Pang boom & he was young again!
