    HUSBAND PASSED RECENTLY AND NEED HELP ON SOME CLOCKS

    Although, it was tedious winding them I actually enjoyed them going off. It was a mutual love affair.

    HUSBAND PASSED RECENTLY AND NEED HELP ON SOME CLOCKS

    Is there a member of NAWCC in the st. Louis area that would be willing to give me some help on a repair and selling a small collection of clocks

    HERSCHEDES - NOT!

    Thanks Brian - that really helps. I haven't ever seen this particular lever in any clock that I have done before. Too bad there is no name on this clock - it seems to be high quality and the 8 foot clock is wonderful!

    HERSCHEDES - NOT!

    Hi R & A - I dismantled it and the gear can only go on one way because the click spring is attached to it. Thanks - I would rather check it now than have all of the clock installed and then realize I got it wrong - Pat

    HERSCHEDES - NOT!

    I went ahead and dismantled the clock because I think you are right. Here's a better photo of the post and the gear.

    HERSCHEDES - NOT!

    Hi - I took an additional photo that is more difficult because I have closed up the clock. No problem to take it apart again. Thanks for any input you have

    HERSCHEDES - NOT!

    I have posted before about a clock that I bought in pieces and was told to be a Hershedes but told on this forum that it is not. I have finally gotten around to putting it together but there is one item that i am not sure how it fits in. I have placed it where I think it should go. I placed...

    Herschedes Grandfather Clock

    Thanks Bruce - I've already assembled it and taken photos but now I need to take it apart again to clean it. I have to make a stand for it because I don't have anything to hold a clock that large. The big challenge will be getting all of the pins and strikers synchronized. Pat

    Herschedes Grandfather Clock

    What is the best cable for a grandfather clock and where is the best place to purchase it. I will need 25 feet of it and I assume it is .60 in diameter.

    Herschedes Grandfather Clock

    Here's one interesting note: The brass plate that the owner removed from the clock said: "J. K. Thompson, 25th Anniversary, Arthur Anderson & Co. Presented by the Partners, August 5, 1971. This was the Anderson Accounting Firm that was in charge when Enron failed. They were found guilty of...

    Herschedes Grandfather Clock

    Here's a photo of the exact clock that was on under images on the net when I typed in 5 tube grandfather clocks. There are 2 circles in the corners just like mine and the tubes and strikers are just like mine. The only problem is that it is in the UK and the email that is listed is...

    Herschedes Grandfather Clock

    Hi Brian - I guess I'm going to take time to research all of the answers and learning sites. It seems that I have taken on quite a project that I wish whoever took it apart had taken a load of photos. There definitely are no markings of any kind of the movement. I don't believe it is a lower...
