    keininger gf chime sync problem

    The replys on my chime sync problem with the Kieninger GF appreciated.I double checked the wheels and none seem to be crossed as they are all different and perform a separate duty. This is most puzzling. The suggestions that wheels might be swapped made sense, but doesn't appear to be the case...

    keininger gf chime sync problem

    Thanks Shutt--Jeff and David. I have been thinking that had to be the problem, but I am always very careful about that, as I know you guys are, but I needed advice from you experts--as you know, the kieninger is a bear to strip and re-assemble. I will give it a try and let you know. Carroll

    mainspring for Junghans clock

    A large Junghans clock in for repair has a broken chime mainspring. I measure it as 63/64 X .022 X 78 " long. There seems to be none available except 63/64 x .018 x 78 1/2. The barrel is 50 mm wide and 1 " deep. Do you think this spring will be strong enough for the chime ? Thanks Carroll
