    Re: New Haven electric banjo style

    Quartzed? I have seen many examples of electric banjo style clocks. the case does not seem to have been altered from a pendulum driven movement to electric, there is no hole where a pendulum would...

    New Haven electric banjo style

    could not resist this one, no eagle finial but it runs well. my most expensive acquisition by far at 40$. It says "starter" under the 6, is this related to automatic control I wonder?
  4. Re: Fleamarket Enfield any info on a pendulum bob??

    I appreciate that Veritas, will try it out and see what happens
  5. Re: Fleamarket Enfield any info on a pendulum bob??

    thanks again Harold, if I were able to find a seemingly suitable bob that turned out to be unsuitable once it started to tic would I be able to safely stop the clock at that point so I could try...
  6. Re: Fleamarket Enfield any info on a pendulum bob??

    this may be a silly question, if the weight and length of the pendulum bob I require are known could I make one myself?
  7. Re: Fleamarket Enfield any info on a pendulum bob??

    thanks for the reply Harold, is it common to find striking clocks with no on/off switch? and could anyone tell me anything more about the style/age of this big beauty?
  8. Re: Fleamarket Enfield any info on a pendulum bob??

    one further inquiry, there does not seem to be an on/off lever for the strike function, does that mean this thing will continue to strike the hours all through the night?? hopefully not.....
  9. Re: Fleamarket Enfield any info on a pendulum bob??

    says 5 C on the black base the chimes are connected to, ENFIELD Made in England is the only marking I can see on the back of the movement.
  10. Fleamarket Enfield any info on a pendulum bob??

    Hey all, just picked up this Enfield and would love to know more about it, especially any info on the pendulum bob shape and weight.126180
  11. Re: Seeking information on a mantel clock serial number

    Yes Harold, I did mean the brass bar on the left, thank you.
  12. Re: Another yardsale find anyone have information on this one??

    I just gave it a slight tap when I put it back on the shelf and it started to tic, had no idea this thing was in working condition. set the time and it seems to be running ok so far!
  13. Re: Another yardsale find anyone have information on this one??

    Thanks Joe ill take a look!
  14. Another yardsale find anyone have information on this one??

    says Foreign under the 6, no other marks I can see.123846
  15. Re: Seeking information on a mantel clock serial number

    yes you helped me understand the purpose of the black bar for chime storage, by "bar" I mean the brass bar on the right hand side of the movement above the hammers
  16. Re: Seeking information on a mantel clock serial number

    thank you Harold, I think that hand will need to come off. if I could trouble you with another question, if you look at the right side of my movement above the hammers there seems to be an adjustable...
  17. Re: Seeking information on a mantel clock serial number

    the hands are held in place by what seems to be a bent pin that runs through the "square" the hands are on, is this the taper pin you mentioned?
  18. Re: Seeking information on a mantel clock serial number

    The minute hand seems a bit loose, like it has a few milimeters of "give" to it. both hands are moving ok and keeping good time but I cant seem to synchronize the chimes. Can the minute hand be...
  19. Re: Seeking information on a mantel clock serial number

    I was able to move the minute hand with minimal force, now I just need to synchronize the chimes and I will be content to let it rest until I can have it cleaned and oiled
  20. Re: Seeking information on a mantel clock serial number

    I adjusted the bar that secures the chimes so it wont touch them, now it has a rich tone!! thank you so much. Any ideas on my minute hand issue?
  21. Re: Seeking information on a mantel clock serial number

    ah thank you very much that saves me alot of tinkering
  22. Re: Seeking information on a mantel clock serial number

    by the way...when a chime clock is running in silent mode do the winding arbors for the chimes stay fully wound or do they slowly release?
  23. Re: BUlova self winder hands touching each other

    I need to look online because there is not one registered watch/clock repair professional on the whole of Cape Breton Island where I live! all we have are jewelery stores that send watches out for...
  24. Re: Seeking information on a mantel clock serial number

    I decided to let it run for a few days, it is running but I cannot set the time.. feels like I will break the minute hand if I try to move it (clockwise only of course). Both hands are moving...
  25. Re: BUlova self winder hands touching each other

    I like to hear that! the only other issue is the dirty textured dial, and the cleaning and oiling the watch will no doubt need. If I can find someone online that can handle that for a decent price I...
