    ibm/itr pendulum.... mercury?

    Bruce, I never attempted to dismantle my pendulum as it appeared to be in pristine condition. So I cannot comment on disassembly. When I carefully tipped the pendulum sideways the resultant displacement of the mercury was felt distinctly. Since no leaks were evident, no need to fix something...

    German beehive clock - looking for info.

    Isaac, In your earlier post you state, " The chime barrel for the HH is hollow, while the H 1/2 movement's chime barrel is solid. " FYI my H 1/2 chime barrel is hollow... also your chime hammer springs and suspension spring arrangement are significantly different from mine... Thanks again, Bill

    German beehive clock - looking for info.

    Isaac, Thanks for the info, it is appreciated! Sorry I missed your previous post, thanks for the link. Agree with you about the coiled gongs. I especially like the strike gong, it is surprisingly deep and sonorous. One annoyance, there seems to be no chime correction feature on this movement...

    Replacement hands for Vienna regulator

    Recently I acquired a nice Vienna clock in decent shape except for the hands. The minute hand's tail was broken off, and the hour hand was ratty-looking. Timesavers offers VR hands that work OK, but only in one style. Other than finding original hands in decent condition I was not aware of any...

    Recommendations on cleaning wooden clock cases

    I really like this stuff: Have used it on several clocks, it contains no harsh chemicals and is very gentle. Same manufacturer's "Protective Wood Feeder" is also a great product for follow-up afterwards . Bill

    quarter hour chime sequence ?

    JTD, It's possible the quarter strike is malfunctioning. I had a very similar problem with a GS movement (inconsistent quarter hour striking). They can be temperamental. Tim S, can we see a photo of the dial side of the movement in your clock? Bill
