      I am trying to work on a Black Forest coo coo clock and am having trouble un screwing the hand nut. I can see threads beneath the nut so it seems it should unscrew but so far I have had no luck. I am afraid to use too much force and do damage to the movement. Anyone have any suggestions?

      Thanks, Ed Stanek


        Hello Ed,
        I have encountered the same problem many times with cuckoos. They should be hand tight only but people seem to over do it. I put a small dab of watch oil on the thread and after waiting several minutes I then use a small plier and give it a hefty twist. I have not broken one yet. Of course there is always tomorrow.
        Best of luck Ed and a good holiday season to you.
