Horace Whitlock's Premium Quality Synthetic Clock Oil was started in 2002. Years and years of study, testing and verifying went into this product prior to it hitting the shelves for sale. Each batch of Horace Whitlock's Oil's are hand blended for a perfect consistency, as well as the perfect viscosity for the product the oils will be used for. After years of testing by several clock companies around the country, we knew we had an exceptional product and were ready to offer the oils to the professional trades. After a few years, we started offering our oils to the hobbies as well.
Oils are measured in viscosity, along with other oil properties. Choosing the correct viscosity, as well as the highest quality oil that is within your budget, will be the most important choice you will make to keep your family's heirloom clock or future heirloom clock up and running. The one thing every mechanical clock has in common, is that they all have to be properly cleaned and re-oiled on a regular basis. Picking the wrong oil, or an inexpensive all purpose oil, could be the most costly mistake you will make when it comes to keeping your clock up and running.
Horace Whitlock's Premium Quality Clock Oil comes in both a kit form, which includes everything you will need to service, clean and re-oil your clock for years to come. We also offer a bottle of Horace Whitlock's Premium Quality Clock Oil in a single .5 oz bottle without the other items in the kit, for those who already service and repair clocks.
Our company understands that there are fewer and fewer clock repair shops left in this country; therefore, we have decided to offer a product, along with the educational tools and information, for people to take on the task of servicing their own clock.
We have a downloadable PDF file with instructions on how to properly oil a clock movement without expensive equipment or the skill set for dismantling a clock movement. Feel free to download the file as much as you would like and do come back to our site. We plan to add additional information in the future.
