Clock Repair Workshop in Powys, Wales


See what we can do in our workshop

At Jillings' premises in Powys we have workshops specifically for clock and barometer repair and restoration work.

Further to these workshops, we have a small showroom where we exhibit some of our own restored stock of clocks and barometers.

Visitors are always welcome.

Clock repair workshops

We clean, repair and restore clock movements to a high standard using traditional hand tools and techniques.
We also use precision lathes and clock making machinery produced by manufacturers such as:

  • Lorch

  • Wolf Jahn

  • Pultra

  • Boley Leinen

  • Chronos

Clock movement overhaul

All movements are stripped down to component level and all parts cleaned and polished where necessary.

  • Pivots are reshaped and polished
  • Pallets are refaced when necessary
  • Arbors can be re-pivoted
  • Wheel teeth repaired
  • Wheels and pinions recut when needed
  • Pivot holes are re-bushed
  • Poor past repairs are put right
  • Mainsprings are replaced when necessary
  • Missing calendar and moon phase work can be reinstated
  • New lines are fitted to fusee and weight driven movements


We strip down mercury barometers and clean and refill the mercury tubes or fit new tubes when necessary. On wheel barometers, we attend to the pulley system and threads etc. Other barometer work includes repair and restoration of hygrometers, thermometers, levels and their bezels and glasses and of course restoration of all the dials (including re-silvering).

We can also repair or replace aneroid movements. Barographs are also a speciality and as well as completed restoration, we can supply paper, nibs and ink. The clock movements are overhauled in the clock making workshops.

All barometers are tested and calibrated.
