    Default Ibm 35-7

    I just bought a IBM 35-7 master clock. Is there a hard copy someplace i can buy with set up or operating instructions.
    I will post pictures when i receive the clock. It came out of the Kingston General Hospital, near Ottawa, Ontario.

    Hello Kevin,

    Google "IBM clock corner" and you will find some stuff put together by the IBM people because they were being inundated with clock questions. I saw your clock on Kijiji, I think.

    I read the invar pendulum weighs 14 pounds and the weights i thought are 20 pounds each is that correct. Other than a mounting anchor in a stud any other considerations for mounting to a wall.

    Yes, a lag bolt into a stud, and a good screw near the bottom, where you should see another hole. Keeps it level. That could be heavy for the weights, but if it is mercury pendulum, I think they were heavier. IBM weights are like no others, with those nuts on the top of them.

    Hello Kevin,

    Mine has the 110 V junction box on the top of the case. I was able to run the wire down the back (1/2" space) and out through a round notch at the bottom to plug into the wall below the case. That way there is no wire visible on the side of the case.

    I have a large lag bolt at the top and a bent "T" bracket screwed to the bottom of the case and the wall to keep it plumb.

    Jim

    It arrived , its bigger than i thought 5 feet 9 inches long. I have a picture of my wife standing next to it. My buddy is coming over to help me install it in a few days.

    Both keys for both locks came with it, i really like it. My wife said it was too big for our house, i said, really and laughed.

    Hello Kevin,

    Your case is different than mine. I don't have the flange on the sides and my door locks have the key hole in the sides, not the front.

    I took the door off to hang it. That makes it a little lighter and I put it on a pedestal of some sort (wooden box, I think) so I could bolt it into the wall.

    Mine is from Malton, with a metal DND tag and a metal A. V. Roe tag. Think AVRO Arrow.



    Jim

    Wow Jim i love your clock, great idea on the door too. Avro, as in Avro Arrow. You can,t get any more Canadian than that. Mine looks like they ut a hole in the wall and flush mounted it into the wall. Appreciate the help Jim.

    There is no database for Canadian made IBM pendulum master clocks, Kevin
