• 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 Seth Thomas Mantle clock

    That case looks like it's an adamantine finish. If it is, the case should clean up nicely. If the clock were mine, I would just clean it. It's a nice clock.

    the trouble with gilbert

    Hi, Shutter, I've seen one of these movements before. I think there is suppose to be a stop pin. If you look closely at my highlight, That wheel has a small whole punched through the crossing which creates stop pin. If that stop is broken it may be the problem. Tom

    Missing pendulum adjuster on new acquisition

    Hi, You need a rating nut. The spring inside the bob is there to make the bob drop if you adjust rating nut. I believe, if you look closely the rod has threads pressed into the side. I had a couple of these. and I tossed them in the trash. I would replace the rod. Tom

    Cuckoo cuckoo clock hands: square minute shaft

    Hi The old cuckoo clocks have this configuration. The nut that goes on the square thread should be round. However they are like hen teeth to find. If you have one don't loose it. They are no a standard metric thread. Tom Kloss

    Ingraham Synchronous Movement

    Hi Mick Welcome to the MB. The sweep second hand should be a press fit. However, with an old clock it might have been on for many years. Just be careful loosening up and you'll get it. Maybe a little tiny drop of Liquid Wrench might help. Tom Kloss :cool:

    Hi, My understanding of the steel plates use is that there was shortage of brass during the Great War (WW1). The steel plates are very harsh on your reamers. Tom

    Horolovar Kundo Clock

    Hi, Shutterbug is right ,You might try a C or D cell before you go for a new battery case. See if the clock will run at all. You might have a bad coil that the magnet passes through. If that case. Those coils are near impossible to get to. Tom K
