    Hammond clocks

    You need to release the circular snap ring (circlip) that retains the movement in the housing. I've added a red arrow to your picture pointing to one end of the snap ring. It can be difficult to prise the end of the ring out - I find a small sharpened jewellers screwdriver works best.

    Hi, First you need to carefully pull off the brass cone nut which is a friction fit on it's arbor. This will enable you to remove the hour and minute hands which are both a friction fit. Regards, Steve

    The clock is now running and keeping good time. I fitted a Saia UDS1 12v motor with UDG 500:1 gearbox which has the same dimensions as the original motor. The only issue is the motor runs very hot although I did read in other threads that this is normal for some clock motors. The clock is...

    Haddon Golden Vision Replacement Motor

    I need to obtain a replacement motor for a Haddon Golden Vision Model 70 clock. The existing motor has no identification marks but it looks like standard synchron type motor. Do you know what is the required RPM of the output shaft on the motor?
