    Philip Hauck parts

    Hi. Eric. I think I have sourced a donor Hauck movement for my clock in the UK. I have not seen it yet, but from what I have been told it has everything that I need. (Fingers crossed). I also think I have sourced a barrel for the JUF clock. I will let you know how things work out. Thank you and...

    That's interesting Eric. I don't suppose you have a spare Schatz 49 barrel lying around, if you have I would be interested in purchasing it plus the escape wheel you mentioned earlier. I have another question for you. I have a JUF 400 day clock Plate no. 1595 with a bent tooth on the mainspring...

    Philip Hauck parts

    Thanks Eric. Your escape wheel is a good start in my quest to find the parts needed. If I can now find a cannon pinion and mainspring barrel. I will need all three parts, or at least a cannon pinion plus your escape wheel. If I can't find a replacement barrel I can probably either have this...

    Philip Hauck parts

    Hi All. I recently came on a box of clock parts, I believe they are from a Philip Hauck clock, the base, pillars and dome are present also. I had noticed the damaged mainspring barrel, but later on when I had a closer look, I noticed the broken pivot on the escape wheel, also the cannon...

    I probably did not explain myself properly, that is what I tried to do, but it did not work.

    Hi. Thank you for the advise. I tried to solder the wheel to the shaft but it did not work. I did solve the problem though. I drilled a hole the size of the shaft in a heavy piece of metal and put this in the vise, I placed the longer side of the shaft into the hole. I then drilled a hole up...

    Thanks for the link. The picture shown is not what I need, so I checked their other listings, and I could not find anything to suit. If I Have measured correctly my wheel diameter is 30.20 mm, and the length of the arbor is 30.20 mm. I am assuming the arbor length is measured from one shoulder...

    I don't think the wheel will come off easily, it is held in there but will spin around. If you zoom in on the larger picture of the wheel you may see what I mean. I have found at least 2 more plates very similar, plate 1460 and plate 1676, both Herr plates, and of course plate 1582D by Neueck. Pat.

    I can appreciate there would be a lot of force coming from the spring to this point. As you say there is not much brass left for the loctite (glue) to grip to. I wonder if silver solder might work. Sourcing a replacement wheel might be difficult, so I will have to find a fix of some sort. Is the...

    Hi Kurt. I read the thread, it's a bit confusing, some say use loctite and some say not. I think your suggestion to wait and see if others might have a better solution is the thing to do. Trying to find what caused the problem in the first place might be a good idea as well. Pat.

    Hi. Thank you for your reply. I was wondering if the clock was over wound would the pressure be enough to cause this to happen. You mention staked, what is that or how should I do it. Pat.
