    Clock Winding arbor needed for Seth Thomas kitchen shelf movement

    OK, Jim. Thank you for your reply. I will take the mainspring off the winding arbor and try to post a photo here. This is a standard looking American movement from a Seth Thomas clock and I believe most American time and strike movements from the early 20th century look similar, so I thought my...

The wheel, click and click gear have been completely destroyed. This is a rear mounting movement with a shorter winding shaft so a part from a...

    Clock Balance Wheel for Urgos

    I'm looking for a replacement balance wheel for an Urgos movement # UW06037. This movement was removed from a lovely carriage clock which was brought to me for service. The balance wheel for the escapement is broken but I proceeded to clean and oil the movement, everything seems to be working...

    Clock Part Required for Urgos balance wheel movement

    I did see that thread. FYI - Actually in regard to the Hermle 340-020 movement mentioned in that thread, I've purchased several Hermle replacement balance wheels from Butterworth Clocks over the last few years for a very reasonable price. The balance wheel I have is for an URGOS and I don't...

    Clock Part Required for Urgos balance wheel movement

    Willie X: Thank you for your reply. The double helix hairspring is bent and has been compromised but the main issue is the fine wire which runs through the wheel and on which the balance wheel floats is broken. That's the reason I'm trying to find the replacement part. Bob

    Problem with Sonora Chime

    OK CB thank you for the warning about the size of the hole in the replacement spring. I saw the springs in the Merritts catalog and was thinking about one, but I'm sure Merritts and Timesavers must get them from the same supplier. B

    Problem with Sonora Chime

    Harold: Thank you for your reply. Do you know where I can find an appropriate steel shoulder rivet to replace the existing one in the Sonora barrel?? I'm concerned the "click rivets" I see in the catalogs won't hold up. Bob

    Problem with Sonora Chime

    Hello: I have a Seth Thomas mantle clock with the Sonora chime in the shop for service. I've cleaned and oiled both works but I'm having difficulty securely fastening the spring inside the barrel of the Sonora chime. Every 4 or 5 windings the spring lets go on me. The problem is the rivet...
