    Another Estate Sale Find

    To everybody who responded Thank You. To Micam100, yes there are holes in the top & bottom where finials were present. I agree that it looks good as is and I will probably not replace them unless someone has a picture of what was there. When I took the movement apart, I noticed that all the...

    Another Estate Sale Find

    Picked this two weight at an estate sale the other week. Was told it didn’t work. While taking it apart I noticed that all the screws on the movement were loose. After cleaning the movement and reassembling the movement put it on my test stand and it worked fine. I cleaned the case and you can...

    Whose Trademark?

    Thanks JTD & Yahagi, I don't think the case is original to the movement. I think someone found the case and inserted a movement he had into it. I'll take pictures when it's finished. Best Regards

    What could be wrong?

    I decided to clean an old 2 weight movement I had. After I took it apart, I put the plates in my ultrasonic cleaner in which I use Deox-007 cleaner. These parts cleaned up nicely. I then put the time gear train into the cleaner, and they came out looking horrible as you can see in the picture. I...

    Hour advance

    I just purchased a Vienna regulator and have it setup on my test stand. My question is when does the snail wheel advance to the next hour? The one on the test stand advances just after the hour. I would think it should advance just before the arming for the next hour strike. Best Regards
