    Ingraham shelf clock ID

    I'm looking for help in identifying these two Ingraham shelf clocks (year and model). The first has an alarm and strikes on the hour and half hour. This one belonged to my great-grandmother. The alarm is missing the linkage to the dial, and I'm seeking the parts and information to repair...

    Seth Thomas Tall case clock

    I'm in the Metro Detroit area, and if there is someone in reasonable driving distance that would be ideal, but I could pack the movement carefully for shipping if necessary. While browsing the web tonight, I came across this excerpt from a 1915 book. The Eli Terry movement shown looks to my...

    Seth Thomas Tall case clock

    Thank you. Our house was built in 1822, and it's a perfect fit for style and scale. Now, is there someone out here who could give old Seth some much needed TLC? He's lost a few teeth, his crutch wire loop has cracked at the bend (it was soldered when I bought him, and cracked again). The...

    Welby help needed

    I agree, I should not have touched it. Live and learn. I will, but I am not so sure my little clock will. Ah, if only the little arrow and plus and minus were not so clearly marked... The back of the movement is stamped Welby Manufacturing Germany 2 jewel.

    Is it likely that the movement for my clock is the Eli Terry type? (refer to https://mb.nawcc.org/showpost.php?p=436718&postcount=151) It very closely resembles this: http://nawcc.pastperfect-online.com/31724cgi/mweb.exe?request=record;id=36173172-0A53-4275-8CF8-540856564894;type=101

    Welby help needed

    It did sound quite nice but now sounds uneven for the brief time it runs.

    Welby help needed

    My apologies, as I am likely using entirely the wrong terminology. I am neither a formal collector nor engaged in repairs, I simply enjoy the mechanics and artistry of the timepieces. The Welby has some older companions, an Ingraham shelf clock and an early woodworks Seth Thomas tall case...

    Welby help needed

    I have a simple Welby mantle clock c. 1930s-40s by appearance. It ran perfectly but ran slow, about 6 minutes a day. Beat adjustment appeared oh so simple, with a - and + on the back of the movement, and a movable pointer on the spring dial (proper name I do not know). I moved the arrow a...
