Arizona Horizon and Arizona State University Channel 8 featured Frank Beaudrot and All About Time Clock Shop last Friday evening.
Watch the segment here!
An Arizona man has a rare talent and intense passion for fixing clocks. Frank Beaudrot has spent decades bringing family heirlooms back to life. His shop is filled with a variety of clocks -grandfathers, mantles, and cuckoos- some dating back to the 18th and 19th centuries. In special cases, Beaudrot even makes house calls.
Check Out My New Cleaning Room. 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!!
Back in the main part of my shop, I’m also expanding my horological machining capabilities, so keep checking this blog for more pics of that department. New milling machines, thread cutting machines, lathes, presses, microscopes and more!! Pics coming soon!
My “Photo Tour” is coming soon so please check back to my website regularly.
