    Gregory self winding questions

    Hansen master clock with program machine

    I had someone bring in a hansen master clock with a program machine that has been replaced with a quartz movement....the program machine is still there and she is interested in putting an original movement back in there. So I figured I would stop by and see if you guys have any leads.

    looking for someone to cut gears and barrels.

    I'm expecting to pay 200 or so per barrel and maybe 100 for the smaller gear. Is that a fair guess?

    weird movement came in peices....

    I have all the other pieces it's just disesabled. I had it running at one time but it didn't have the auto correct lever. My skills at this time would allow me to make the piece if I could see it.

    weird movement came in peices....

    I am coming back to this clock now that I am more experienced. It came to me in pieces and me and my teacher have determined it is missing the 2nd lever for auto-correcting and/or a warning level. I think the missing lever goes on the arbor above the one with the stop level. hopefully, someone...
