    4 mantel clocks bought from estate sale today

    Hello all, I finally admit that I’ve been bitten by the horological bug! Here’s some pictures of the 4 clocks that, believe it or not, my wife encouraged me to buy!! What a great gal! It was her idea that we go to the estate sale today and we did alright. Here are some pictures.

    Horace Whitlock oil

    Yes, I use it on my 1830’s Seth Thomas mantel wood works clock. It has run smooth and clean since day one. It takes very little so don’t over oil! Best Regards, Robbie

    John, I wish that I could help you with the set up of the strike train, but I haven’t gotten that far yet with my clock. I’ve cleaned all of the pivots and bushings with acetone thoroughly, reassembled the movement and oiled the bushings. The clock has been running great since, but I haven’t yet...

    T (homas) E. Suggs & Co, South Carolina, 30 hr clock

    John, I do color matches often at my job regularly as a millwork finisher and I agree with Diane that these colors of stains are probably the correct choices.

    Got this early American at auction $322.

    Sorry that I can’t help you identify the movement Jim. I just wanted to compliment you on this beautiful clock, especially the face! I love the eagle!

    Wooden Movement

    Hey Everyone! I just wanted to finally g you an update from my post: New Clock Acquisition from August 25, 2019 that our clock is working great and keeping excellent time! So far I’ve run it at 12 hour intervals and haven’t yet tested the chimes yet. I’m a little nervous about that because of...

    GREAT Info Troy! Thanks for all of the advice and link. The picture looks very similar especially the box designs with 8 dots in each. I’m sure that Seth Thomas clocks are one of the most desirable. I have not adjusted the depth of the verge only because I’m inexperienced but very careful. I...
