    Default Silas Hoadley Alarm Timepiece

    Hello,

    I am working on restoring a Hoadley miniature alarm timepiece and the original pendulum bob is missing. Does anyone know the style and weight that would be correct for the clock.

    Thanks,

    Jim

    Jim,

    Here is an example, nothing too unusual, the bob weighs 4.5 ounces and the photos below should give an idea of size.
    I have seen the bone rating nut used on a number of Hoadley clocks and believe them to be specific to him. However, one with a leather nut should be perfectly acceptable and easily found at a Mart or on the popular auction site.

    Happy hunting,
    Troy
