Day No.5 – leaks

Today the roof was inspected and deemed beyond repair. The options are limited, so we’ve decided to have the roof tarped in the meantime. New leaks have started and the buckets are filling fast. I spent much of the day navigating the leaks, as we experienced a torrential down pour.

In between emptying buckets, I found a dozen or so small antique alcohol lamps of varying sizes.

Under a bench and under some other stuff I found what looks like a second complete Lorch lathe in its original box.

    1. Hi John,

      This will all be for sale. The blog posts are meant to help show what is there as I go through everything. I’ll be making a catalogue and having on site sales. No, I don’t buy clocks, but if you have things to sell you could always contact an auction house like Bonhams. My primary occupation is that of a horologist. I do occasionally handle special estates.
