    Kitchen clock finish

    I have had an Ingraham oak kitchen clock with an Admiral Dewey patriotic theme for several years. It is in very good condition, running well. Original glass and pendulum. The finish is somewhat grimy in places and has the normal white paint spatters (have never figured out why all my clocks have...

    For a 30 hr wooden works, should be about 3 pounds. I believe the 30 hr ogee are a little less.

    Atkins label

    Thanks for the help, Mike. Doesn't appear in Splitters and Bailey. A quick search didn't turn up anything either. Will see if I can turn up any additional info. Mike

    Atkins label

    I have an 8 day brass clock that my dad restored in the late sixties. The dial is a paper replacement. The label says: Atkins Clock Company Bristol, CT My question is about the label. There is a missing piece in a strategic location. What there is reads: J. ?age Steam Job Printers 2 State and...

    Printer for Silas Hoadley

    Pictures of above clock. The label says it has ivory bushings and it does. Obviously someone has decided to put brass brackets to hold the movement in. Also, instead of the expected leather washer, someone drilled two very small holes in the cannon to put in two small pins to hold the hour hand...

    Printer for Silas Hoadley

    Purchased a WW clock at the last annual in Springfield and am just getting around to cleaning it up, etc. The label was printed by Barber and Osborn. Can't seem to find them in Splitters & Bailey. Does anyone know when they were in business? I did find a reference to them in an 1835 State...

    Ogee weights

    I found some 8 lb weights to try. I put one on the E.N. Welch and it has been running for the last 24 hours. So I suppose this is the answer to my questions. Thanks for everyone's input.

    Ogee weights

    Interesting sketches. Looks like #9 might be appropriate. Where did these sketches come from?

    Ogee weights

    No. They run for a few minutes, but not very well. Both are dirty and need cleaning. Also, someone was playing with the strike side and both are really messed up.

    Ogee weights

    Forgot to mention, the label on the Forestville was by Elihu Geer at 1 State Street (1847-49) and the Welch was printed by Gilbert, Calhoun at 66 State St. (1856-60).

    Ogee weights

    I recently purchased two eiIght day ogee clocks at a regional. One was a Forestville and the other was a Welch. The weights I received (from the same person) were about 2.5 pounds each. I don't have any otherr eight day ogees for comparison, but these seem to be what I would expect for a 30...

    Seth Thomas What station could my Seth Thomas be from

    I would contact the CPR historical society at Canadian Pacific Historical Association They would be the most likely place to find your information.

    Pivot hole size

    Thanks for the detailed response. Yes, I will be using a drill press and wood replacements. I have some empty plates with no parts and somewhat hacked up. I also have a pretty good selection of small drills, both metric and inch, so I can get pretty close to the required size. Hadn't thought...

    Pivot hole size

    I am about to attempt rebushing a typical Terry type wooden movement by the tapered plug movement. I measure several pivots at about 0.065 inches and some holes in various plates at about 0.070. So, I am planning to use a 0.070 drill. Does this sound about right? Thanks,

    Price differences between online marketplaces vs. Antique marketplaces

    I have seen nearly identical threads on Antique Radio Forum. It seems that neither clocks or antique radios are of high enough interest to antique dealers to research.

    Bartholomew WW clock

    I have the materials to try the whiting powder suggestion, but have not had a chance to try it yet. It seems that the cord for the strike weight on a little Seth Thomas four column clock broke as I was winding it. Took it to the workbench to fix and then noticed that its case could use some...

    Bartholomew WW clock

    Thanks, James. Didn't remember chalk dust coming in red. Just blue. I tried mixing some putty with oil paint, but my color consultant (my wife) told me I needed more red. Also, it was difficult to mix even the sample, so your mixture might be better.

    Bartholomew WW clock

    Thanks for the link, Jim. Good suggestion on painting the wood in the door. Will look for some putty with linseed oil and then some colored powder.
