Frank’s love for clocks first became evident when he started tinkering with timepieces at about the age of seven (not really repairing them, mind you —just taking them apart and not putting them back together!)

Here’s a photo I dug up that was taken back in 1978.  At the time, I was the service manager for Ted’s Clock Emporium in Glendale, California. (you can read more about that on my “About” page on my website).  The local newspaper must have been having slow news day so they came and did a human interest piece on Ted’s.  Yes, that’s me standing precariously on the rails.  You can’t see it in the picture, but under my smock is a safety harness.

I’m so excited to finally have my “new” cleaning room completed!  A larger work area, two new ultrasonic cleaning tanks and plenty of room for the pre-soak and three stage rinsing tanks will allow me to more efficiently process the volume of work I have.  Now I have the ability to clean clock mechanisms more cost effectively.  At $52 per gallon of ultrasonic instrument cleaner and $20 per gallon of rinsing solution, I needed a way to improve efficiency.  Now I have it!!
