• Upcoming updates
    Over the next couple of weeks we will be performing software updates on the forum. These will be completed in small steps as we upgrade individual software addons. You might occasionally see a maintenance message that will last a few minutes at most.

    If we anticipate an update will take more than a few minutes, we'll put up a notice with estimated time.

    Thank you!

    Inherited a lot of antique clocks

    Old mixers? Do tell... I ran into a guy that collected vises. Like the one on your work bench. Apparently you can rebuild everything and collect or sell them.

    Inherited a lot of antique clocks

    Brandon, Thank you for finding this forum and sharing. Does any of your grandfather's collection interest you? Do you have memories of him tinkering with these? How about others in your family? Pretty special collection to me seeing it. If I was you I'd get a few tables to put them on. Wipe a...

    Thank you JTD I'm trying to research winterhalder hofmeier clocks. having just obtained a hans, I saw this similar clock at a lady's house. She didn't know the manufacturer but did purchase it in Germany as a young girl. I didn't see the HWN marking on the chime mount or chain ends like mine...

    New Haven cigarette dispenser

    Hi TJ Yes springs under each. The clock and lid just sits on top and you rotate it and a cig pops out. It a appears there could have been an ashtray metal or glass inside or just storage for a lighter. All leather on the outside. No numbers on mvmt I can see to guess age and what not.

    Got a haul of clocks for a song

    Nice clocks! We picked up 15 clocks at an estate sale for $50. Another one 2 grandfathers running for dirt cheap. That's when it started... We have around 70 clocks now. I read on here you either are a collector or an acquirer. Family and friends don't spend the night here anymore.

    New one here. New Haven cigarette clock from auction. Worked great, kept good time. Wound as needed for several weeks then this morning winding key felt odd and handle spun loose as if it stripped or something fell apart inside. Later in the day I got time to investigate. Loosened nuts to...
