• We are aware of the performance issues with the forum. These are due to problems with Comcast's shared lines in the Columbia, PA area. On December 15, we signed a contract to bring a dedicated fiber line to the forum servers. It should take somewhere between 30 and 90 days to install. Thank you for your patience.

    Help Any way to self-teach clock repair

    Damn! I thought the Howard Miller clock would be a good starter, but I guess I was wrong. I paid $26 for that clock (to answer murphyfields's question), which was essentially in unknown mechanical condition since I bought it without a key. That didn't seem bad compared to what it would have...

    Help Any way to self-teach clock repair

    Thank you all for your advice. This is very helpful and also a bit overwhelming, as I see a lot of resources available to help me. I am more of a visual learner myself, but I would like to have lifetime access to the educational materials. Bob Tascione's site looks like it is reasonably...

    Help Any way to self-teach clock repair

    I just got into collecting Kundo clocks because I like the rotating pendulums and have thrown around the idea of learning how to repair them so that I could by a non-working clock at a garage sale or online cheaply and fix it myself, just as a hobby. I currently have no experience or knowledge...

    Anniversary clock domes

    I see your point in this case. I went a little shop happy when I decided to start collecting these clocks and didn’t take the time to comparison shop and get a sense of the true value of these clocks. I probably should have asked the sellers a few questions, too. Lesson learned. I like the...

    Anniversary clock domes

    Hi Eric. Thanks for the advice. I am a rookie collector that just got into this hobby so I am still learning as I go. It's good to know when this clock might have been made. I was disappointed that the dome was plastic, but if it is authentic, then it's ok for what it is. The clock looks...

    Kundo Clock plastic dome/adjust hour hand

    Well I was referring to my question about the plastic dome, was wondering if I should ask that in a different thread. But I ultimately got an answer to that question. Concerning the hour hand, you were right, I was able to move it with a little bit of force applied toward the bottom of the...

    Anniversary clock domes

    I know this is an old thread, but I have a question about this. I just bought a German Kundo quartz clock that I received today. It chimes. Since it was advertised as vintage, I expected it to have a glass dome like my other Kundo clocks, but it has a plastic one. At first, I thought it...

    Kundo Clock plastic dome/adjust hour hand

    I did try to move the hour hand without taking anything apart, but it wouldn't move and I didn't want to force it. It sounds like you are saying I need to take the nut off, or maybe just loosen it, then move the hand and re-tighten. Given that this is a clock that chimes, I want to make sure...

    Kundo Clock plastic dome/adjust hour hand

    I just bought a Kundo dome clock. It is a quarts clock (battery operated) that chimes on the hour, which is why I found it appealing. I have two questions about it: 1) The hour hand is not properly aligned with the minute hand. When I turn the dial to adjust the time, both hands turn. When...
