Rob Deal doesn't take any time at all when asked to name his biggest challenge as a fixer of grandfather clocks. Deal, self-taught, is an authorized repairman for the few clockmakers left, including Ridgeway, Howard Miller and Sligh (now Bulova). "Grandfather clocks are classic items - not a fad," said Kerstin Chelius, president of Sandmark House on Beach Boulevard. Photo Gallery: Grandfather clock repair. That's where Deal and places like Sandmark come in. Grandfather clocks are big - sometimes 7 to 9 feet tall and weighing hundreds of pounds - so house calls are often made. Sandmark does about 25 to 30 clock repairs a month, at an average cost of about $300 to $400, while Deal, who runs Rob's Clock Repair out of his Orange Park home, does two to three per week. Deal said he began working on clocks some 12 years ago as a favor. His wife, like her father, collected clocks and was frustrated they couldn't find anyone to fix them. He began to work on his wife's clocks. A turning point was his successful restoration of his father-in-law's antique clock. He began collecting books on repair and antiques, learning by reading and repairing.
