My profession is mechanical clock repair, in Austin since 1990. In addition to local repairs, I also receive clocks from all over the United States via UPS or the Postal Service. If you have a clock that needs service, please call me at (512) 836-8434 before you bring or mail your clock. Visit my Clock Repair pages to see examples of the work I do before you decide. No battery-operated clocks nor cuckoos. My business is listed in the Yellow Pages under Clock Repair as abbeyclock.com: Mark Headrick, 6101 Cary Dr., Austin, Texas 78757. I am available by appointment only.
