    How to open a Atmos 540 bellows canister.

    The bellows has failed. Been flat for days now at room temp. My plan now is to service the mainspring then manually wind it to make sure the clock works before I repair or order a replacement bellows..

    How to open a Atmos 540 bellows canister.

    Thanks for the responses I guess I am just going to have to squeeze harder. That was the first thing I did was too put the cannister in the freezer for 5 minutes and it measures 37 mm in or out. No change at all. Clock is from 1987. As far as the main spring goes I was going clean and oil it...

    How to open a Atmos 540 bellows canister.

    Hello All. I have worked on many a Atmos clock ranging from a 1942 model up to the 528 models. A customer brought on a 540 model with a flat bellows which I need to take out in order to have it repaired and refilled. My question is how do I get the canister apart? I have tried unscrewing the...

    Bent escape wheel teeth

    Picked up a supposedly E.N. Welch Gingerbread clock for 30 bucks just to play a round with. Opened it up and found a generic no name movement with this escape wheel. These teeth seem to be rolled over in the opposite direction than I would expect. Bent tips are hitting on the pallets and the...

    Silas Hoadley count wheel drive pinion

    I recently acquired a Silas Hoadley tall case from the early 1900's I believe. Unfortunately when I got it home I discovered that the count wheel drive pinion was missing. It looks like I will have to make one but was wondering about the number of teeth? It also seem that the original would have...
