• 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!

    Cleaning Plastic Domes

    For cleaning, ordinary dish soap and dry with micro fiber cloth. If you simply want to hide or disguise the scratches, what works for me is Pledge furniture polish. Work well with old dashboard bezel's in your old car as well. Doesn't remove the fine scratches but seems to fill the fine...

    Help with W. Brocking wall clock

    Thanks LenzkirchFan, I appreciate the response. My In-Laws will love the news. They say it keeps perfect time and yes I would agree that the movement needs cleaning. It is another one of their clocks in the basement storage. I would love to drive out that pin and once again hear the strike gong...

    Regula 25-73 Parts?

    I repaired one of my Mother-n-Laws by drilling 2 holes 180 degrees from each other, then attached the plate to the gear with very small screw and nut. I was unable to locate a new gear anywhere for the fact they are no longer being made from what I was told by a variety of suppliers. That is...

    Help with W. Brocking wall clock

    Yes, the movement does appear to have been slimed. It is in my Father-n-Laws possession at the moment and he is somewhat of a stubborn German. He believes if it works don't fix it. Who am I to argue? The clock is the way he received it from another family member many years ago and upon receiving...

    Cuckoo Bellows wires for this little cuckoo clock please?

    Well, I have three cuckoo's going in my house, one being a Chalet with a music box an excellent purchase on ebay. That one I use as a learning tool, for learning how to set up the music box triggers. That worked very well seeing that a quarter of my Mother-n-Law's clock are with music boxes. The...

    Hello all, Not meaning to change the thread. I am working on another on of my Mother-n-Laws clocks and she has a novelty movement such as the one's that are displayed in this thread. I did a search on most of the online clock parts vendors to no avail. Any idea as to where I may find a...

    D & A Regulator clock?

    Hi all, Update on my D & A clock. I'm starting to run out of my Mother-n-Law's cuckoo clocks, guess I'll have time for mine. The D & A clock is finally getting sleepy after about 30 or so years and showing a need for some TLC. I'm assuming the springs are in need of cleaning and lube, cause it's...

    Help with W. Brocking wall clock

    Hello, The star wheel is a little different but performs similar to yours. My starwheel actually is circular in nature but has prongs at 90% to the surface and these prongs are what catches this little pin to actuate the hammers. The starwheel is parallel to the front plate and the hammer arbor...

    Help with W. Brocking wall clock

    Hello, My In-Laws pulled another clock out of their basement and on the face plate it says W. Brocking and below that it says Hamburg. It is a wooden frame with three glass sides and fancy crown on top. It is a spring driven pendulum movement one for time and one for the chime. It appears to...

    FYI - It hertz when you do that – power grid to stop regulating 60 Hz frequency

    A telephone line when it's ringing will give a jolt. Ask me how I know. Europe may use 220volts it may be a good reason to balance out the buildings power system within their grid. Also they run things at 50hz too. You're not anymore likely to get jolted with 220v than 120v. Also remember it's...
