    Help Haller Triple Chime Clock repair advice

    Well the comb adjustment does seem to have worked... the screws are not loose so hopefully things are now all ok.

    Help Haller Triple Chime Clock repair advice

    Thanks tracerjack , Simon Holt and shutterbug , I am not sure this is what I am supposed to do, but it seems that loosening off the screws holding the combs (thanks for the proper terminology tracerjack ) under the hammers has the effect of lowering the hammers down slightly and that seems to...

    Help Haller Triple Chime Clock repair advice

    Thanks both. I do think I must have assembled the chime barrel and hammer mechanism incorrectly, although it does look the same as the pics I took prior to disassembly. I would have to bend all of these rods nearly 1cm for them to hit the rods which sounds a bit excessive to me (but I might...

    Just in case it might help identify if I have fitted the chime incorrectly.... I have attached another pic of the position of the hammers when I remove the mechanism. The spring plate I mentioned before is holding these hammers up about 1cm above the cross bar when at rest. In my mind...

    Help Haller Triple Chime Clock repair advice

    Well I thought I would take a punt and put the mechanism back in the case this morning, and it looks like maybe I have not fitted the chime hammer mechanism properly. The hammers look like they are sitting too high and are not hitting the chimes. Neither during the chimes nor the strike I have...

    Help Haller Triple Chime Clock repair advice

    I have had this clock running on its stand a few days and all seemed good. However, yesterday I noticed that on the hour, the strike hammers started their 'movement' before the chimes had finished. By this I dont mean in the warning phase of the strike, its just that they seemed to start the...

    Well I have check the clock today an lo and behold both pins are at the top as in that picture. I am sure they werent yesterday?! But maybe with my tinkering around has moved them. So I have probably just been lucky that they are like that. I am sure yesterday when the locking pin was...

    Help Haller Triple Chime Clock repair advice

    tracerjack, the reason I asked about the positioning of the pins is that after I put the clock together I suddenly remembered that when I was doing the Perivale movement I rdad something in a book about the positioning of these pins and I posted it on that Perivale thread of mine, even though I...

    Help Haller Triple Chime Clock repair advice

    tracerjack I have managed to get the clock all back together and running on its test stand.. but I think this may be more through luck than judgement. I was assuming that the positioning of the two pins in the chime train (on the locking and warning wheels) would have needed some adjustment to...

    Thanks for the offer tracerjack , but I have managed to get the train temporarily assembled... made the initial mistake of getting the strike n chime spring barrels in the wrong sides! Confusing my left n right and back to front which didn’t help matters. But I have got there!

    Yeah took pics from all angles before the i separate the plates so fingers crossed I will suss it out! Have also figured out the triple chime mechanism now too. Although it wasn’t working as the adjustment spring was all gunked up and wouldn’t move

    it’s worth a try Simon. I’m going to clean the parts tomorrow and assuming I can reassemble it successfully after this mornings disaster I will give it a go.

    Help Haller Triple Chime Clock repair advice

    Thanks tracerjack. I managed to get some movement in the trains and I think I am Ok with how everything is supposed to work. With the exception of the triple chime train movement. I am wondering if something is broken on this as I cannot see how the chime lever interacts with the chime barrel...

    Thanks tracerjack .. this clock does look like it’s desperate for a clean. I think I am just going to have to make a start on it. The way things are I just can’t tell how things are supposed to move As everything is so filthy.

    Help Haller Triple Chime Clock repair advice

    I have just taken the mechinism out of the case and have had a bit of a 'play' with the chime and strike trains to see if I can get them moving a bit to try and figure out how they work. The thing does seem v dirty and siezed up so I didnt get very far, but I do have couple of questions which...
