    Seeking info on Seth Thomas Miniature Steeple Clock

    Thank you for doing that Steven!! I really appreciate it!! I was looking for a way to delete the first thread, but I couldn't figure out how. Does the forum not allow for a thread to be deleted? I probably should have posted it in this section of the forum to begin with. Thanks again! Ben

    Seeking info on Seth Thomas Miniature Steeple Clock

    Thank you for your reply!! I am curious as to the model name and year it was made. I have not yet had my Dad help me take the face off. The guy that I brought it from use to repair clocks.

    Hello Bruce, Thank you for this information. I have been to the clock museum in Columbia, PA. I love the clock and watch museum there! If I lived closer I would consider volunteering there :) But my parents and I live a good two hours away. I will see about contacting the President of Chapter 1...

    Question about antique clock springs?

    Hello to all Members, I have a question or two about antique clock springs and how long an antique clock is suppose to run. I hope I can explain things clearly! :) I received a clock from a relative at the beginning of July. From research that I have done on it, it appears to be a New Haven...

    New Haven Clock movement question

    Thank you Willie for your reply, My Dad and I have since put the clock back in its case and back together. If we do end up needing to take it apart again, I will be sure to look on the inside of the plates. The clock seems to be running much better now. Something got out of adjustment somehow...

    New Haven Clock movement question

    Thank you for your reply! I was quite puzzled and surprised that New Haven did not mark it. At first I thought it was an E. Ingraham, but then someone told me about the The New Haven Rhine model. I looked it up and it looks almost identical to mine. I was thinking it was odd that a well known...

    New Haven Clock movement question

    Thank you Kevin for your reply. You were the first person to respond. I was quite puzzled that the movement is not marked with the clock maker's name. The majority of clock movements that I have seen have been marked. I guess it's not unheard of, I am just surprised, especially since it's an...

    New Haven Clock movement question

    Hello to all Members, About a week and a half ago I posted a picture of a clock that I recently got from a relative. A few days ago my Dad and myself took the movement out of the case, and to my surprise the movement appears to not have any maker’s name stamped on it?? I have been doing some...

    Somewhat interesting looking Pendulum

    Hi Willie, Thank you for your reply. Thoes extra long keys actually go to an anniversary clock that I also got the same day from the same relative. And the smaller key goes to the clock with the pendulum. Yes, I plan to separate them :)

    I now Believe that this is probably a New Haven Clock. Does anyone here think that this is the original pendulum for it?
