Dead Time

Posted: March 8, 2012 in Uncategorized

I once resurrected an old cuckoo from the dead. I took apart all of its inner workings, cleaned all the gears, carefully greased all the spindles and reassembled it. It ran pretty flawlessly for about six years, until its untimely death late last year when it fell off the wall. I have an old adding machine that’s about seventy years old. I think it’s time I take another crack at repairing that.

    If something stops working it’s always worth a shot to open it up and see if there is anything fixable inside. My brain could use that sometimes.
