Clocks: • While WD-40 is wonderful for loosening all types of stuck/rusted bolts, NEVER use it to free the gears on a clock or to oil the clock. When WD-40 is applied to the brass works, it becomes more like a varnish and gums up. Ends up costing you more money to get the clock fixed. • Old electric clock pam style clocks… if when you plug them in they run backwards, just unplug and turn the plug over. Framing Tips - Framing important documents and prints: Use a framer who will use acid free mat board and acid free materials. Use ultraviolet or UV blocking glass to protect again harmful rays. Do not put any artwork in direct sunlight even with UV glass. Striping Paint from Metal - Drop the piece in boiling water then dip into cold water. The paint should peel off.
