Can anyone recommend a good company/person to resilver a 3in diameter dial from a Viennese table clock ?
I checked the Dial House and they seem mostly oriented to engraved tall case dials. This dial is not ingraved
and has painted/inked numerals and makers name - Anton Liszt in...
I have this Lenzkirch regulator made in 1875 - dated by serial number and first Logo according to the date plan on this Message Board.
Does anyone have a catalog picture or know what the topper would look like? There are two holes on either side of the top of the case, but...
I Have a circa 1920 herschede tall case. Over time, I have noticed that the amplitude of the pendulum has slightly decreased. It is also apparent from a visual check of the pallets, that there is a very, very small amount of recoil of the escapement wheel on the entry pallet, if I am...
Does anyone know of a source for the small wire gongs that are found in a striking carriage clock? I've looked thru all the catalogues of the main supply houses, but everything shown is too large.
Thanks in advance for any info.
I have two Brille slaves - using a Piexx slave driver to run both, will the setting for a brille at 1 1/2 volts send a voltage of 1 1/2 to each or should I use the 3 volt setting in the hope that each will receive 1 1/2 volts? Stupid question, I know, but electricity is on the same order...
Does anyone have a coil for the larger Bulle clocks that is in working condition or know of anyone that has a rewinding service for coils that have gone bad? Perhaps a good coil in your parts bin? I certainly would be willing to purchase this from you.
Many thanks, Jim
Hello, does anyone know of a source for very small wire gongs that would be suitable for a small grand sonnerie striking Vienna table clock? Everything in the supply catalogues seems to be way too big. The outside measurement of the gongs cannot be greater than 3 inches. This is for a small...
i have a swinger that is losing time. The lower ball is down as far as it can go. Will adjustment of the pendulum that is on the movement in the upper ball change the time keeping? If it does , which way should the bob be moved, up or down?
thanks in advance,
any recommendations for the type of rope that can be used in a 30 hour long case in which the rope passes over the drum in a "valley" that has grooved sides to insure that the drum has a "pinch" to prevent the rope from sliding through. Just imagine a drum with spikes in the bottom...
I have a New Haven electric chime clock, Pelham model, that plays westminister. I've got a problem with the coil of the motor. The coil is good, because it was running the motor --- before I removed the movement to service it. The two leads to the coil were so old and brittle that both...
Does anyone know of a source for small spiral gongs - such as the type and size found on french carriage clocks? I need a set (2) for a smallViennese grand sonnerie table clock manufactured by Anton Liszt (brother of Franz Liszt, the composer) in Vienna.
Thanks for any leads,
Have a new clock from the Pasadena regional and I've got some questions about possible case ornaments.
While browsing, I came across a French (or maybe Swiss) pinwheel regulator. The seller only had the movement, the bezel, the dial (two chips in the enamel) and the large pendulum bob...
Do the upper and lower balls on a swinger clock need to be in balance? In other words,should the top ball containing the movement weigh the same as the lower smaller ball and the long rungs from it hangs? If there is supposed to be a balance, is that determined at the point where the...
Can anyone (Scotty?) give me a run down on how to use hide glue as a filler for mahogany veneer?
How thin should the glue be to apply, how smooth, how to smooth it out after it dries, and what effect, if any, will it have to the stain - will it prevent penetration???
A detailed description will...
Does anyone know of a source for a tall case English clock dial - ten inches square or 13.5 inches tall including the arch top -with a 9inch chapter ring, or just a nine inch engraved chapter ring? Needs to be a brass dial rather than a painted one.
Thanks for any help
