    Very cool, thanks for the info. How do you know all this? Experience or a reference? Duane

    Three new acquisitions

    Thanks. My progress is a bit stunted as I'm still needing sleeves to go with my Joe Collins spring winder and the need of a lathe to polish pivots. My family is hooking me up for Christmas, so I'm happy. I've accumulated a nice pile of stuff to work on. Loving the journey. Duane

    Help Clutter

    Like every other change to something like this forum, after a while you (or I) don't remember what it was like before the change. It's growing on me because I realize that it has to. No going back.

    Three new acquisitions

    One mechanical and two electric. They were cheap enough and my wife (who asked if I wanted the Sherline Lathe for Christmas. I'm about 3/4 of the way there money wise) said I needed them. The Hammond is the nicest. in my opinion. Marble or Onyx?

    Interesting Display of Automobile Clocks

    Ran across this display of automobile clocks in a shop we visit now and again. All seemed reasonably priced for an antique shop, but I'm wondering if there's a reference for information on clocks in this general category. Didn't buy any since I know very little about them. Duane

    De Bruce Anniversary Clock

    Under magnification I could verify that the spring was distorted due to "winding" by the owner. I removed it and twisted it in the opposite direction mainly to get an more accurate measurement of the hole to hole length for the new, inbound spring.

    De Bruce Anniversary Clock

    Oh, it's twisted alright. Seems weird that it's so uniformly twisted. I'll need a replacement. I've got one Anniversary clock under my belt prominently running in the living room, so I'm looking forward to this one.

    De Bruce Anniversary Clock

    Picked this up on the way home from work via Craigslist. Got it for $10, with the understanding that it wasn't working. Small chip in the dome that will hide nicely when rotated to the back. First thing I noticed when I got it home was the suspension spring looked odd. Not straight, but...

    Anniversary Present from my wife

    Very cute little birdcage clock. Bird moves on the tick tok. Combines two things I love.

    Potential New Purchase

    More pictures from Henry attached. I'd like to clarify something. I used to buy and sell coins/collections. Sometimes you over-pay for the bullion (junk silver) just to get a shot at the good stuff. Henry refers to the pendulum as the "swingy-thing." That's a feature, not a bug. In that...

    Potential New Purchase

    My guy Henry does the best he can. He's not a clock guy. When and if I get it, I'll post extensive photos. I'll probably swing by his place after work one night.

    Potential New Purchase

    No. The guy, whom I've gotten to know over the last few months, texts me once in a while with clocks he comes across at a house where folks are trying to liquidate an estate. It all started with a Craigslist ad I placed that he answered. I've bought everything that he's offered. It's a nice...
