    Older regula 1 day

    This is in a heco. I’ve not removed the movement yet. One problem is the door opens and closes when it’s cuckooing. This is the type of regula where the perch is held out by the lever on the side. Not the flag like on the newer ones. Any quick tips how to keep the door open on this one?

    Thanks for all the help guys. I’ll try a hardware store! They never seem to have this kind of stuff where I am.

    Small parts request

    Where can you find the case screws to hole the cuckoo clock movements to the case? Some have different sizes as well. Also, what do you guys do to make those holes in the wood tighter if the meat head before you stripped them out. I was told to put a piece of toothpick in. Secondly, where can...

    How does one take the movement out

    I’m wondering if I could sneak the movement out between the bellows. They’re fine but glued in.

    There are no screws visible and the bellows are glued in. Does the front trim need to be taken off? Or do you think the screws are accessible done the back?Also, how do you get the wire to pull the second bellows down, it seems to be stopping as the wires rub.

    Centering bushings

    I’m with Phelan on this. Aren’t the cuckoo movements hard To set up with all the pins etc that jut out? I sometimes have to think about how to get a bushing in after it is reamed because all of the things that poke out of the plates. I’ve had only very small amount of problems reaming and...

    Cuckoo hands with minute hand bushing.

    So, how would I exchange this the proper way onto a new hand if I needed to. When you say peen, where am I actually doing this On the bushing, it’s a plastic hand and would think it would be pretty easy to split. I’m assuming the hole hasto be slightly undersized or exact and still glued to...

    Cuckoo hands with minute hand bushing.

    Thanks Willie. If hands need replacing in this setup, can you use a regula type setup with the bushing round hand hole and hand nut?

    Cuckoo hands with minute hand bushing.

    Thanks for the replies folks. What is it that originally kept the hand from rotating independently from the bushing? Just a tight initial fit? This is one of my clocks and I actually caused this problems the minute hand was off by a couple minutes and I gently rotated the bushing in the hand and...

    Cuckoo hands with minute hand bushing.

    The hand is not split at all. The bushing is just rotating slightly too easily in the hand itself. It was always jus the hand with the bushing with a small hand but in the front. So am I correct to just superglue around the circumference of the bushing to hand interface ar this point?
