    Self winding 3 pole rotary

    The picture that I am referencing is the same one that you posted. I went to another site with the same picture but allowed me enlarge each works. That works would be the photo of the two pole works. The difference that I see with my untrained eye is the winding frame work on my works have more...

    ITR-Master-

    Eckmill, The exact works with the exception of the sleeve on the front plate. What happened was the gear moved and did not align with the winding mechanism. Thank you for taking the time to explain this. I will try removing the sleeve and add the bearings to the front and see what happens...

    ITR-Master-

    Eckmill, I examine the works. I cannot see any means to have bearings in the front plate. The works as you stated have a steel bushing pressed into the plates. The rear plate readily accepts the bearings. On the shaft of the gear on the front is a steel sleeve that slips over the gear shaft and...

    ITR-Master-

    Hello, I have a ITR master which has one gear that has loose ball bearings on one side which I promptly lost and replaced. My question is the back plate has the small ball bearings along with what appears to be a flat washer that holds the bearings in place. The front plate the same gear has...

    Eckmill, You have seen how long ago I started on this clock. I finally purchased the bearings that I needed, made a pendulumn, refinished the case since this one had been painted, and cleaned and reassembled the works. I did not take a photo of the wiring or make any drawing to reference. Now I...

    Frick Clock

    Eckmill, believe it or not the clock case is actually in very good shape. I wound the spring by the ratchet lever and attached the pendulum and the clock ran perfectly. I will disassemble the works and clean, lubricate,and rewire and the clock will perform as it should. I own the clock and am...

    Self Winding Running Fast

    Thanks everyone for the information. After adjusting the verge? last night the clock is now running slow. I have plenty of room on the pendulum to increase the rate. So far so good. I will have to time the rewind. It sounds like it is taking longer than 10-15 seconds. But it may not be. Thanks...

    Self Winding Running Fast

    Harold, You were right about the anchor. Very little depth into the escape wheel. Loosened the screw and adjusted the depth and the swing improve dramatically. I did notice some wear on all the teeth. I plan to run this clock so I will sooner or later have to have some work performed on the...

    Self Winding Running Fast

    Thanks to all for the information. I will start checking this evening and see what the results are. I have one last question the clock is running on 2C batteries. If I am correct they should be D batteries. Would that have any effect on the time keeping. Should I change them since it is winding...

    Self Winding Running Fast

    Thanks for the information. I will check the movement in the escape wheel and all the others. Honestly, I believe that I did but just don't remember. As far as pendulum movement it is moving at the most 1/8"in either direction. If is not the escape what else might it be? I purchased the clock at...

    Self Winding Running Fast

    Hello, Recently acquired a self winding carved case model 29. The clock is running with two areas of concern. 1-The pendulum has very little movement. Is that normal? 2-The clock is gaining 15 minutes in 24 hours. The rating nut is lowered as far as it can go. What do I do next? Or what could be...
