    Offset Bushings??

    Ok, to close this thread out, I did use two offset bushings (one at each end of the arbor so the arbor would run "true") I repaired the problem with my gear mesh. About .020" off center. I made the bushings out of red oak. I don't have access to a clothing tool, so it was trial and error. Not...

    Offset Bushings??

    Hello everyone, I'm currently working on a Silas Hoadly time/strike movement. It came to me with several badly worn and broken Ivory Bushings. I turned some new bushings on my lathe (oak) and rebushed the clock. When I put the movement together, it would run between 2 and 6 hours then stop. I...

    Missing Gear

    Thanks for your reply, Jim. I certainly appreciated it. Fortunately for me, I actually found my old gear and have sent it out to be repaired. Thanks again!!

    Missing Gear

    Hi, I have a question for the group. I have an 8-Day Seth Thomas Wood Works movement. And to make a long story short, I seemed to have lost the Time Side #2 Gear. So, will the same gear from another 8-Day movement fit my clock? I have no idea the tooth count of the gear or pinion leaves. Thanks...

    Don Bruno Out of Business??

    Hey Jon, Thank you for responding. I think I have found a used gear, so I think I'm all set (at least for the time being). I really appreciate your offer, and I will keep you in mind if I need a gear cut. Thanks!!

    Don Bruno Out of Business??

    Hey Bobby, Thanks for the help. Your link opens his page, but if you type in the web address that shows at the top of the page, I get a server can't connect message. It does seem strange that no one seems to know if he is still operating or not, even if it's on a limited basis. Thanks Again!

    Don Bruno Out of Business??

    Hey everyone, I may have missed something, but is Don Bruno still making/selling parts? I need a gear, but his website(s) have been down for a couple weeks (unfortunately I don't have a phone number). If he has closed shop, is there anywhere else to get wooden gears? I hope all is well with him...

    Help Question for Seth Thomas Gurus

    Shutterbug, I see exactly what you are talking about. Possibly I still have to make a pallet adjustment. Back to the drawing board! Thanks!

    Help Question for Seth Thomas Gurus

    Well guys, I took your suggestions, and used a hollow punch to "tap" the pallet back on the Pivot. Worked like a charm. Only have one problem left. The clock strikes right on the hour, but at the half hour, in stead of striking one time, it strikes the same number of times as it did on the hour...

    Help Question for Seth Thomas Gurus

    I am currently working on a Seth Thomas #120 movement that I rebuilt. The Time side runs great, but the Strike side doesn't work. Using Seven Conovers' "Striking Clock Repair Guide", I have narrowed the problem down to the Gathering Pin being out of adjustment. So I pried the Gatering Pin/Pallet...

    Help identiying this movement??

    Thank You Chris and Steven, You have given me some great information. I ordered a copy of the bulletin supplement on eBay last night ( for $3, how can I go wrong!) Hopefully, now I can figure all of my mess out!

    Help identiying this movement??

    Hi everyone, I am hoping that someone can help me and identify this movement. It has no markings on it, but appears to be of an excellent quality. I got it out of an 30 hour woodworks clock (long story), that someone was trying to pass off as an 8 day brass, weight driven, Salem Bridge clock. I...

    Ingaham Banjo Bezel Size?

    Hey all, A newbie question here (I hope this is the correct forum!). I'm working on an Ingraham "Short" banjo "Bim-Bam" clock in which a lot of the upper case was broken. All the parts were there, but needed a lot of TLC. Anyways, I'm at the point that I need a bezel and glass, but I'm not sure...

    Very small pendulum swing

    Wellguys, I calling "UNCLE!" on this clock. I have tried every tip mentioned in the above posts, and still no luck. I'm going to send it to a professional clock man. I still believe my problem is in the verge, but I have never annealed, bent, and rehardened a verge, and I don't want to try it on...

    Very small pendulum swing

    Thanks for all the replys gentlemen. Sorry about the poor quality pics, but it's the best I can do. The EW does indeed turn clockwise, so I am confident it is a recoil escapement. One thing I have noticed is that with the clock running, my entrance pallet is barely touching the teeth on the EW...
