    Hermle triple train movement

    Hello! I am currently repairing a Hermle triple train grandfather clock movement. The numbers on the back of the movement read 83 1161-850. What would cause the second hand to flutter a few seconds at once? I have checked the escapement and it does not skip teeth. I have checked the depthing...

    My new "babies"

    Hello! I really like some of the styles of cuckoo clocks that are marked E.Schmeckenbecher. Especially the animated cuckoo clocks. I have several wall models and some shelf cuckoos with that marking on the movement. I wouldn't say that any of those cuckoos are rare. They are "modern" style...

    Beha Musica Cuckoo Clock Restoration

    Hello! I believe that the music box is original. The wood plate movement was manufactured to actuate a music box. Additionally, the count wheel has extra pins in it to actuate the levers that activate the music box. One of the simplest set ups I have seen in a musical cuckoo clock. Also, there...

    Junghans ATO Clock

    Hello! Since I do have the broken dial; I thought about taking it to an auto glass restorer. Some of those places can repair a crack in a windshield invisibly. What do you guys think? Thanks! Neal

    It's only a myth... or is it?

    Hello! My morbier clock does the same thing periodically. If I wind it until the weights touch the bottom of the case; the clock wants to stop. If I wind the clock to to where the weights are about 1/4 from the bottom of the case, it runs like a champ. Thanks! Neal
