Photo-a-Day - Aug 2012 - Day 01: Broken
I may have mentioned I have some problems with my hands due to damage from being rear-ended twice within one month, tendonitis, arthritis and some carpel tunnel from crocheting. It causes me often to drop things and for my hands to go numb. It also means I don't have as much strength in my hands as I once did.
Two weeks ago, I was doing my Sunday round of clock winding--I have nine. This one sits on a higher shelf and mid-winding, my hand slipped on the key causing it to slip out of the slot. I heard that sickening "clunk" inside. Sure enough, I had broken the mechanism that controls the pendulum. Now I have to decide whether I can afford taking it to the clock shop for repair. Poor clock.
