Nice plate clock.
Thinking of Thanksgiving day I recalled a sign I saw some time back which read:
"Dwell on what you still have and not on what you have lost".
The more I thought about that sign the more sense it made to me.
Happy turkey day to all and be thankful for what you still have...
Hello Messrs. Alshot and Croswell;
Thank you both for your reply(s) to my recent query for it is much appreciated.
Mr. Alshot, I did as you suggested to remove the great wheel from the winding arbor. Additionally, I was able to file the two ratchet teeth in question. It now appears the click...

Thanks for the replies.
Hello R. Croswell:
Thanks for your reply to my query.
To answer your questions - yes to all of them. Also. I simply moved the key on the strike side arbor and, low and behold, the chime began to chime. The movement has now been chiming correctly for several hours now. I think I will let the...
I have a New Haven statute clock the has been running well for several years and also chimes the appropriate time as well. The last time I wound both the chime side and time side I noticed it is no longer chiming on the half hour or hour. However, the clock is keeping time.
I haven't removed...
