We have a French farmhouse which is 170 years old. Broken Mantle.

We are in Charente Maritime in France and have a Charentaise farmhouse which is 170 years old.
Our fireplace in the lounge is made of solid stone and the mantle which was obviously in two pieces originally ,has lost its mortar and has split in the middle. We, also have a wood burner in situ.
How do I repair the mantle?

If your mantle is stone I would suggest drilling 2-3 holes diameter should be relevent to the thickness so as not to split the stone. do this on both sidees of the mantle. Use a branded epoxy such as araldite and bond steel rods into the holes in the stone mantle bridging them together, any fine cracks can be filled with a fire cement and wiped clean.

Hope this helps

What is cognac?

A type of brandy made from brandwijn, white grapes grown in the Charante region of France. Here is a quote from the link below: Under a century-old French law, only distillers based in France's Cognac region have the right to call their double-distilled spirits stored for a time in oak barrels (thus, the brown hue) "cognac." Companies based elsewhere, whether within or outside France, which still publicly insist on marketing their products as cognac, are guilty of misrepresentation, and can be hailed to court.

I need a Howard Miller battery mantle clock

Try You can replace the entire movement for about $5 including new hands. You can select from an assortment of hands that will probably match the style of what you have and use those if the old hands don't fit the new movement. I've bought several movements from them over the years. For a few more dollars you can upgrade to an "atomic clock" movement which synchronizes with the US time signal and even sets DST automatically.
