Having arrived in Edinburgh in 1985 I became a Senior Development Engineer at Ferranti and specialized in the development of Ring Laser Gyro Inertial Navigation Systems. At the heart of these systems are extremely precise instruments used to measure acceleration and these are in essence PENDULUMS!!!!.Hence my interest in antique clocks was born. I was not only interested in the clocks themselves but also the many clockmakers up and down the country. The ingenuity of these men was quite incredible. Some were even able to make clocks accurate to just a few seconds a year and this was done without a regulation time base (GMT) that we all take for granted today. Recent projects on the Trinity College Cambridge Clock built in 1910 shows that it has a drift rate of just a few milliseconds a day. I became a Physics Teacher in 1993 and was able to pursue what was my passion for clocks for the next 20yrs. Now in the twilight of my working career I resigned as Physics Teacher and set up my own business from April 2014 offering antique clock repairs, antique barometer repairs and other antique machinery repairs. The business has grown steadily and presently we carry out repair work for several shops in Edinburgh and Stirling. Recently bids have been submitted to the National Trust for Scotland for turret clock restoration work. Working from home and marketing on the web a business model has be devised whereby the overheads have been cut to a minimum. This means that the hourly charge rate is about 50% less than my competitors. It is hoped that because of this all the unsold clocks and barometers hanging in auction rooms because they are too expensive to fix, will become a thing of the past.
