    Salem Triple Chime Clock Germany

    I determined that this movement has a working Silent Mode. It was not very obvious why Silent Mode was not working on the Chime Selector but figured out that it had to do with set screw touching the Chime Selector when in Silent Mode. Once the Chime Selector is set to Silent Mode it needs to...

    Salem Triple Chime Clock Germany

    I acquired a Schatz and Sohne W3 7 jewel triple chime clock and the silent mode for this mantle clock does not work. All of the other chimes work fine (St.Mich, Whitting,Westm). The silent mode still chimes the St. Mich in Silent Mode. Do all of these movements have a working Silent Mode...

    Mainspring Replacement Seth Thomas

    I have a Seth Thomas Movement A400-000 that needs a Time Mainspring. I know that the Hermle Replacement movement for the A400-000 is Hermle 350-020 movement. Can I use the replacement mainspring for the 350-020 movement for my A400-000 movement? The A400-000 Time barrel is stamped with 8E and...

    Antique New Haven Octagon Wall Clock Suspension Assembly Spring Replacement

    I just bought an Antique New Haven Octagon Wall Clock at a yard sale. When I removed the movement from the case I noticed that the suspension spring assembly was modified. The feather spring is wired so that it will not fall through the post. It looks like someone replaced this feather spring...

    Gustav Becker Case with Junghan movement 104 1/2

    I took the movement out of the case again and could not see the surplus holes you described. I did attach another picture of the mounting bracket that is clearer. Is it uncommon to have an original clock which has a Gustav case and a Junghan movement?

    Gustav Becker Case with Junghan movement 104 1/2

    I bought a wall clock at a yard sale. I looked on the back of the case and written on this case was Gustav Becker Freiburg /Schl. So I assumed this was a Gustav Becker clock. To my surprise it had a Junghan 104 1/2 movement. I am trying to find out the approximate time when this clock was...

Does anyone have more information about this lathe and where I can purchase accessories like cross slide...

    clock plate damaged hole closing

    This was very educational for me. This clock was my grandfather's clock and he lived to 100 years and died many years ago. My mom now has this clock which was shipped from Holland. My parents were from Holland and came to this county in 1957. I am not sure how old this clock is but attached...

    clock plate damaged hole closing

    This was very helpful which leads me into another question. This is a weight driven 24 clock and running good. The pivot holes are worn especially around the main wheel. There is also alot of lubricant in the pivot holes. If I am not ready to bush this clock, can I use a lubricant other than...

    clock plate damaged hole closing

    I have an old dutch clock and when I removed the movement from the case I noticed the hole punches around the pivot holes. Most of the pivot holes were closed using clock hole punches. It also looks like it was bushed at a later date. The clock will need to be re-bushed on many of the pivot...

    How to remove Bulova 23 cover

    I did notice that the movement was firmly seated with the bezel removed. I did not try to loosen the movement first. So if I understand you correctly, I need to first loosen the movement within the case with the bezel removed. Then I can try to align the slot and tab to remove the movement...

    Vintage L&R Cleaning Machine - Oil motor

    I purchased a vintage L&R Cleaning Machine and it is working fine. I noticed that there is a spot on the top of the AC motor labeled 'oil'. I am thinking a drop of oil would be sufficient but not sure what type is recommended. Does anyone know what type of oil should be used for this AC Motor?

    How to remove Bulova 23 cover

    i was able to remove bezel very easily per Peter's instructions. I am definitely doing something wrong when trying to remove crown using his technique. Attached is a photo with the bezel removed. There is a picture within this thread showing the back of the watch.

    How to remove Bulova 23 cover

    I removed the bezel very easily with a watch knife but no success with the crown removal using technique described below. I am sure I am doing something wrong here. :o I tried to pull out within my hands but not enough force I guess. I spoke with someone today who said I could use a pair of...

    How to remove Bulova 23 cover

    Once I get the bezel off, do I put the watch in the set position and then slowly turn the stem until the crown (male part) slides out of the watch? Also, am I applying any outward pressure while turning this stem slowly so that it will disengage from the movement? I really appreciate the...
