    Schatz 400 day won't run

    I must be getting pretty good at setting that eccentric;) As to the anchor pin not being balanced, what is the best way to correct that? (I'm not going to fool around with it now, since the clock is running.) I'm just asking because I love to learn, and I have a basic curiosity about how things...

    Schatz 400 day won't run

    I'm happy to report that the clock has been running since yesterday, I think the main problem was that I had the fork too tight around the pin. As soon as I readjusted it, I was able to get it back in beat and I seems ok for now.

    The clock ran for about 90 minutes, then it quit. Here's a new video of the pallets and the fork:

    I'll give that a good look and see if there is a mark to align with. Thanks!

    The pallets are non-adjustable, so luckily I didn't do anything to them. I will recheck the fork to anchor pin clearance again. I will post another video first chance I get. Edit: I just checked clearance and the fork was too tight, so I adjusted it so a piece of paper slides in with a very...

    Schatz 400 day won't run

    Kurt, The original pin was bent, and it looked like someone had done trying to correct a problem. The new pin points vertically and square to the anchor now. I attached a picture of the anchor as it was for reference. As you'll see in the picture, the pallets are not the adjustable type. Good...

    Schatz 400 day won't run

    When I posted the video of the fork movement, someone on here noticed that the fork was moving more to one side than the other. I took out the anchor and noticed that the pin that interacts with the fork was bent. I guess I don't have to tell you what happened when I tried to straighten it...

    Schatz 400 day won't run

    It seems that while I've been working on this clock, the tension washer that goes behind the cannon pinion has grown legs and walked away. Where can I get a replacement?

    Schatz 400 day won't run

    Hey guys, Thanks for all the help. Following your suggestions, I think I may have this baby running again. So far it's been running about 2 hours, which is much better than the 20 minutes I was getting yesterday. I think it is still slightly out of beat, but that shouldn't pose much problem...

    Schatz 400 day won't run

    Shutterbug, you were right, I went through and checked all of the teeth and made sure they were straight. Harry, I checked the movement without the anchor like you said and got no movement until about 10 clicks. I found the hour wheel was slightly bent and was binding on the minute wheel...

    Schatz 400 day won't run

    I'm glad the drops look good to someone else, I thought I had gotten them pretty close, but I'm no expert by any means. I'll start by checking the movement as you suggested. If that goes well, I'll try lowering the fork. What would be good increments to use for the lowering? 1mm or so at a time...

    Schatz 400 day won't run

    Now that I've got the movement back together (thanks to Harry Hopkins), I can't get it to run. The train runs freely without the spring barrel installed, and I checked every pinion individually and they all spin freely. The tension spring was broken so I installed a new one using the diagram in...

    Schatz Anniversary Clock broken screw

    I'm working on a Schatz with a movement marked JAHRESUHRENFABRIK-GERMANY with 49 in the center of the mark. I found a broken screw that holds the gear on the front plate. It's a shoulder screw and it measures: Shoulder diameter 2.38mm, shoulder length 7.94mm, thread diameter 1.62mm (I think that...
