We've got an Elliot fusee wall clock (c1900). We bought it 3 years ago and after 2 weeks of gently adjusting its position on the wall, has run perfectly.

Then 4 days ago it stopped and has refused to keep going longer than 5 minutes at a time

Does anyone know of a good clock repairer/servicer in the area or does anyone on the forum know about these type of clocks?

The old man has died. All attempts to fix are hopeless.

...if you press it, they will come.

For those who didn't have the kind of extensive and obscure nursery rhyme exposure that Ivanhoe and I obviously did...I used to sing this one at Brownies in a kind of round robin...

We used to sing it a nursery - and now thirty odd years later - I've been singing at my desk all afternoon.

Am hoping the CEO and CFO will join in soon so that I can get the round robin thing going (is that called singing in cannon or have I made that up?)

singing in cannon is what the circus dwarf does, while he's waiting for the fuse to burn down.

They're not dwarves! That was my nursery class being fired from cannons whilst singing about my grandfathers clock!

and of course, there's the rude version (think missing consonants)
