    Thank you Tatyana and Lenzkirch fan. I am not used to both quick and useful replies on the NAWCC site anymore. Makes me want to come back! I am happy that it isn't a "marriage" although the backboard has a lot of extra holes. Yes, please weigh some weights. I was surprised I couldn't find any...

    Help please. I have tried to research with no luck (including reading many of the posts in this thread). What are the correct weights for Lenzkirch clocks? Here is one I am working on and it came with 2 miss-matched weights (both in weight and looks). One is 3 lbs 3 oz, the other is 3 lbs 10...

    Very sorry to hear Ron has passed. Very nice and helpful man. We have a few Chelsea clocks from him that we got over the years. We will miss him at the SouthWest California regional too.

    Waterbury #20 ships clock

    I am not sure you have to move the hour hand. If it is striking 8 bells(dings) at 8 o'clock like you describe, that is correct.

    Sears Roebuck Cuckoo weights

    Shutterbug, Thank you for the help. That is the way I currently have them. I am concerned that none of the patterns for the three weights match so I don't know if what the original weights were or sizes. Harold Bain, I will check again, but because of the size of the two bigger weights, I...

    Sears Roebuck Cuckoo weights

    Have not seen much on this. A friend has a 1920s? cuckoo, marked Sears Roebuck with non matching weights. I realize the clock was made in Germany by who knows what company. It is a quarter striking (quail?) and hour striking cuckoo. Eight day clock. Is one of the weights supposed to be...
