    Default Are these old NOS motors worth keeping?

    I recently came across some NOS electric clock motors that were once stock from a now closed watch/clock materials house. Some of these include:
    Lux 44-3011 motor
    Lux 44-2818 motor
    General Time Corp 2155 motor
    Lanshire Clock SS-2 motor
    Lux Model 5210 NN-74 2300 series motor
    Lux Model 5260N 2370 series motor
    Intermatic WG-630 motor
    The Sessions Clock Co motor
    Synchron I129RB motor

    and many others. Can anyone give me any insight on these.
    Thanks.

    Been away from the site for some time and it is amazing that this is the first thing I read. From the manufacturers you name I assume much of your material is 1960's or prior. Absolutely you should hold on to them. Sell through eBay or the Mart. I, for one, would jump at the chance to acquire the older stuff. Not a lot of folks repair electric clocks because the economics are just not there for most items. Collectors like me will do it for their own pleasure. I can fabricate parts for my mechanical clocks, but electric clocks not so much. What you have has monetary and historical value.

    The Intermatic is possibly from a Kit-Kat clock and should do well on ebay as with the synchronous.

    Past-time,

    Are any of them like the one pictured in this thread:

    http://mb.nawcc.org/showthread.php?t=46238

    If so, then I am interested in a good working example to fix a clock I am working on.

    Thanks,
    Greg

    I have a LeMieux ceramic mantel clock with a Lanshire SS-2 motor. The motor is noisy and is slow in keeping time. If you still have the Lanshire SS-2 motor, I'd like to buy it from you.

    I recently bought 11 NOS electric motors marked "General Time Instruments Corp". What clocks would these fit?

    Don't wanna rain on yer motors - and it may not be your experience - it was mine. I sold a slew of motors on eBay and received barely a pittance. Perhaps only bought for the Dahlberg coin-op motel radio timer motor.
    Hindsight? I'd GIVE 'em to folks here who would appreciate 'em.

    The 44-3011 will fit a thermador oven model MSC 228-4 ,MSC 38, Msc 18 and more. These ovens are over 30 years old. I would like to buy a 44-3011. Thank you Sid
