    Bellows for a Whistler?

    Thank you for the email address. I have not yet been able to take a photo of the bellows, however, you described them exactly! I have thought about attempting to recover them with the same material that I used awhile back to recover an oversized cuckoo clock bellows. I purchased extra...

    Bellows for a Whistler?

    The bellows is very very different from those of a cuckoo clock. They are a compound bellows which makes different whistle sounds. More like the bellows of the singing birds in the brass cages. I'll take a picture of the bellows and try posting it.

    Bellows for a Whistler?

    Does anyone know where I can find the bellows for a Whistler. :confused: The one I have is the more common one with the man leaning against a lamp post and it is not a battery whistler, it is fully wind up movement. But, the bellows is very damaged and not repairable. :@ Hopefully someone...

    how to restore a marble/slate case?

    I have a beautiful BIG heavy black marble (slate?) case where one side has turned a hazy dirty white color. It almost looks like a mold. The front of the case is the same way. It looks as if a shellac or something wore off of parts of it..but this isn't what happened. I tried steel wool and...

    Herschede parts

    Yes.. call R&M Imports.. I purchased a set of 8 herschede chime tubes.. they were expensive..but then on second thought they weren't expensive..I got what I paid for! They were of very good quality and they really made the clock an eyecatcher. The old cracked and dingy tubes had to go.

    Standard Time, Anyone?

    Here in SW PA.. my clock did not change. It's at least 10 years old. My Mothers clock (she lives 25 miles south of me) set itself back...but then the next morning it reset itself to the correct time. Her clock is the same age as mine..and is the same thing.

    How to remove Old Putty!??

    Thanks to all for the ideas for removing the old putty. I tried a utility knife but this stuff was so hard that even putting a utility knife on the putty and whacking it with a small hammer didn't hardly even put a dent in the putty. I also tried the heat with a curling iron on a high...
