    What would it look like? The pediments on my GBs vary somewhat.

    I'm not that familiar with all the variations, but I have something that has a similar looking bridge with 52mm between hole centers but the finials aren't that "fancy". Not to mention that two of the finials are broken off.

    Thank you.
    From your description, it sounds like the condition is not as good as I would like so I think I will hold off and continue looking.
    I appreciate you taking the trouble to respond.

    Looking for a C-suspension piece plus fasteners for a JUF crystal regulator. It's the backwards C-looking time in the picture...sorry a little blurry. I might have to get someone to make one, but thought I'd check to see if there's one in someone's spare parts bin.

    Thanks...Kurt

    You can buy a replacement on eBay; search for "special suspension block". The seller (not me, I should add)
    sells a variety of replica parts and they are of good quality.

    Thanks...I was directed to a seller in Australia. Seems like they're good reproduction parts. Now to dust off my PayPal account!!

    Default Konrad Mauch Foot (By: KurtinSA)

    Have a Konrad Mauch miniature with "Diana" on the dial. The clock came with 4 feet which are independently adjustable. However, one of the bogus feet was glued on! I removed it and cleaned up the threads...now I'm looking for a replacement foot. The foot is 10.9mm tall and 13.1mm at it's widest point.# The threads are M4x0.7. I've checked with Chris Nimon and he came up empty. Below is the clock along with the correct foot. Any ideas? I took 3 nuts from the hardware store and glued them in a stack...it works but looks awful.

    Thanks...Kurt

    Default Re: Konrad Mauch Foot (By: KurtinSA)

    I'd drill it out and insert a piece of brass stock that would be redrilled and tapped.
    Could you drill out the top of the foot enough to JB Weld one of those nuts in it?
    If you do a clean job and touch it up with some brass paint (Provided you couldn't find a brass nut in that size), it should be pretty unnoticeable.

    Martin -

    You can see the replacement foot that came with the clock. I was really looking for a "real" replacement. I attended a lecture at the National about 3-D printing. This would be a possibility for that kind of "repair". According to the lecture, he prints with something like 70% brass power and 30% plastic filler. Then the item is cleaned up...seems to work great for finials which might be painted. I do know someone locally who has a 3-D printer...hmmm...
