    Information on Bingham from Troy NY?

    Hi, I have a very special wooden works clock. I can't read the first initials, maybe ?DP?, but the name appears to be Bingham, Troy New York 1831. This clock has an embedded print along with a signed poem attached on the inside, and I'm trying to find out if there is a connection to Bingham...

    What Fits Old Style KWM Bushing Tool Chuck?

    Thanks everyone, I ordered a #3 KWM cutter with pin and it is a perfect fit, the pin fits nicely between the chuck's fingers and would help prevent slipping.

    What Fits Old Style KWM Bushing Tool Chuck?

    hi, what type of replacement reamers or cutters (and other accessories) fit the old KWM Bushing Tool chuck? It has a small chuck similar to a drill press, but very small. I would like to use the newer KWM cutters. If needed, on the new KWM cutters, can the pin easily be removed from the...

    Help Identifying Regulator(is it a Biedermeier?) Clock Date and Manufacturer?

    The glass is not wavy....i also thought the name Sainz was odd, it is a Spanish name. Because of the use of this name, I was wondering if this was a reproduction. The wood is old. I have no idea if the face has been repainted. If the clock was restored, it was done with perfection, except...

    Help Identifying Regulator(is it a Biedermeier?) Clock Date and Manufacturer?

    Hi, I'm trying to help give a friend more information on his inherited clock. It looks amazing, but there are no markings and everything looks oddly new except for the back wood panel is obviously 100+ old, flathead screws and pins everywhere. The pendulum rod is metal, is this Invar? The...

    Jewelers Clock Help

    A local clock friend found this clock in his book. It is made by New Haven, 1895 model 'The New York'. Next, can anyone help me with a technique to straighten or flatten and maybe take some of the bends or folds out of the brass decorative piece on the pendulum rod? It should be perfectly...

    yes, removing the screw, it fits perfectly in the bigger hole. Everything you said about the pin makes sense so I will give it a try. Thanks for all of your help!

    Jewelers Clock Help

    Hi Bruce, I can see what you are saying about the pendulum from your pictures, when i look closer i can see it resembles some Gilbert pendulums more, not saying it is one. Could you help me figure out how to replicate a pin for the pendulum? The pin on this is missing.

    Jewelers Clock Help

    Thank you for the information. One more question I have is on the pendulum hanger, there are two holes, one bigger one on the bottom and one smaller one on top. The bottom one uses a screw to attach the pendulum to the hanger, but I am not sure what to put in the smaller hole, as it is not...

    Jewelers Clock Help

    hi Bruce, thanks for your quick response, the pendulum looks to me to be very similar to Waterbury clocks I've seen. But I'm guessing same pendulums were used on many different clocks? Does the pendulum help determine the age the clock or anything else to help determine the age? thankyou

    Can Anyone Interpret this Signature/Clockmaker?

    When researching we found this cabinet style might be early 1800's, but we also found 3 other signs hinting earlier: 1. found an article "How to Date Your Grandfather Clock" . Concerning pendulums it says "From 1740 to 1800 the wire rod stayed, but the bob became flattened into a saucer shape...

    Can Anyone Interpret this Signature/Clockmaker?

    I believe this to be a Scottish Drumhead clock from 1785. Even after seeing the initials or signature, I can't figure out what it says. I edited a picture to show more detail of the letters. Any guesses to the letters or name or clockmaker? thankyou

    Clockmakers A&E or L Adams Late 1700's to early 1800's?

    hi, I'll post the clock pic, but what it looks like now may not be exactly what it looked like in 1815. I know (according to engravings on the same gear) that Hiram Chase Altered the clock in 1868, but not sure what he altered. you can't tell from the pics, but it is 5' tall. The engravings...
