Impromptu clock repair at work today

It would be nice to describe to others how you repaired it.  

It was such a simple thing that never occurred, my apologies.

The hour hand had shaken loose, probably from a few knocks or drops, it being a 'talking clock' as well as the analogue display.

So it was flopping around.

I popped off the crystal which was held in place by 2 tabs, removed the second and minute hands to allow proper re seating of the hour hand ensuring it was square and secure then refitted the minute and second hand and once tested by setting after a full revolution to ensure they weren't contacting each other, replaced the crystal which just snapped into place.

The lady who has it, (care home), uses the speaky bit but likes to look and see the time and it was frustrating her.

Well done M1ks, certainly your good deed for the day.

Mum used to get quite agitated when she couldn't "see the time" on her clock even though she knew what time it was from her wrist watch.
