    Revere Trouble.

    Removing the dial revealed the lifting lever spring had been shorted and a wire wrapped around the lifting lever. The wire was fouling with the hour wheel and causing the clock to stall at 12 o clock. I removed the wire. Now it misses the chime. It appears the wire was there to move the...

    Revere Trouble.

    Help. I have an old Revere two plate electric clock. The minute and hour hands keep getting stuck at 12 and stalling the rotor. I can physically move the hands and it will start working again. When doing this I feel quite a bit of resistance. Any one encounter this, or know why this is...

    GE "Hotel" World Clock questions

    I’m sorry TH, I don’t have the actuator you speak of. Could you provide a close up pic? I have many misc Revere parts, but am unaware of Revere ever making a timer clock. Although not original, I wonder if there is some kind of modern equivalent. The two Telechron clock gurus who I believe...

    Restoring 2 Motors with Ken Reindel – Tonight!

    I too missed this. Having children makes it hard to commit to such engagements. Would love to see the video.

    GE "Hotel" World Clock questions

    A possible use in a hotel that occurred to me may have been to ensure the coffee was ready by a certain time. Electric drip coffee makers were certainly around in 1962. Speaking of Coffee, I still need another cup

    I commend you for your efforts. So many clock shops would have convinced her to convert to a quartz movement. Keep us updated with your progress. I look forward to seeing the finished product

    GE "Hotel" World Clock questions

    Mxfrank is right. They were often used in conjunction with the family radio. B2 rotors should have oil not grease. The output shaft should not be turned as it will ruin the internal gears. It may be difficult to find a good working b2, but not impossible. If you do find one, it must match the...

    GE "Hotel" World Clock questions

    Use a multimeter to insure 110 vac across the terminals at the field. You can check resistance, 700 ohms is usually ok. Touch a screwdriver to one side of the field, you should feel the screwdriver vibrate. If all checks out, it is probably a stuck rotor

    GE "Hotel" World Clock questions

    Cool clock. Should have a Telechron rotor. I see 60 cycles, but cannot see what type of rotor. The rotor is probably stuck due to old gummed up oil, and the internals may have worn. Depending on the type of rotor, it may have been lubricated with grease. Check the forum and or internet for...

    Please ID this Clock Herschede clock

    Nice clock. I would restore it, and keep it in your private collection. The chimes will not disappoint, and it is great that they are canterbury. This is a high quality clock made by Americans, which competed, and in many cases surpassed the competition. Politics, greed, labor unions, and...
