    When the power goes out, what time is it?

    If this situation arises, how are clock makers going to know the correct time, and how are they going to transmit the correct time to other clock owners/makers around the country? Piecat

    Guidance, please

    Mike - as I'm not equipped to re-do the dial myself, I will leave it as is until I can afford professional assistance. I plan to hunt down a 6" (150mm) bezel and glass on the internet (I still have the intact hinge). The piece of moulding - It would be interesting to figure out a way to produce...

    Guidance, please

    Hi Harold I'll have to go with your guess then - with nearly 14000 posts your guesses must add up to something! RJ The replication of that lost piece of carving is my dilemma as well. I suggest the only way is sitting in front of a mirror while you are working, and then use the resulting mold...

    This Hamburg American was in the junk bin at our local recycle place - got it for CD4.00. The only thing missing is the bezel and glass. Could someone please try and date it for me with the help of the following photos: Thanks - Piecat

    Odd Two Pendulum Movement

    My guess is that there was an inter-connection between the two crutches, and the pendulum hung from the "dead" crutch. The purpose of this arrangement was to bring the pendulum to the center of the movement, of which the escapement was uncomfortably on the edge. Piecat

    Battery or Electric Clock Motor

    Bill Your clock movement is a genuine Kienzle that was made in Germany. The example I have, has at least two jewels that can be seen without dis-assembly. Mine is mounted to a beautiful steel and hammered brass face, and measures 15 inches across. On the face it says: Kienzle Automatic - Swiss...

    Ingraham clock I.D.

    These are very ordinary kitchen clocks and come in various decorative designs. Not much known about them except that they normally run a bit noisy. No harm will come from proper lubrication, and it just might make it run a bit quieter. The two shown here were both purchased it a thrift store...

    Seth Thomas Sonora - Is it restoreable?

    That's exactly why, as I said in my previous posting: " Also, I'm in no hurry, because I'm working on a million things at the same time - clocks, old radios, old cameras, etc." I just cannot see a good thing going to waste. Our household is running out of space with all the old things I...

    Seth Thomas Sonora - Is it restoreable?

    Hi Greg Yes, but I'm doing the easy parts first, like thoroughly restoring anything on the clock that is not worn. Also, I'm in no hurry, because I'm working on a million things at the same time - clocks, old radios, old cameras, etc. :thumb: Piecat

    Seth Thomas Sonora - Is it restoreable?

    Thanks for the encouragement so far. Notwithstanding my 74 postings on this board, I’m still very much a novice, and need to know “how to do it”, in addition to “can it be done?”. If the procedures suggested by Greg, Peter and Tom have been discussed before, I will search for them. My “workshop”...

    Seth Thomas Sonora - Is it restoreable?

    I have discussed the condition of this clock movement (89 AG) with members in a previous posting. This part comes from the time and strike side of a Seth Thomas Four Rod Sonora. and is representative of most of the parts of this movement. The chime works seem to be in a slightly better condition...

    ST Sonora Chime Model Numbers

    I have a ST Sonora Chime movement with the number shown in the picture below. I have seen the three digits in various combinations in old postings, but not this one. If this was a factory mistake, does it make the clock more 'rare and valuable', like mis-stamped money ? :?| There's not...
