    Ansonia Capitol Springs

    Hello, I recently purchased a Ansonia Capitol spring wound time only. Both springs were broken. What I came up with for the old springs is 7/16" x .015 x 96".

    Sonora Chime

    I recently aquired a 4 bell sonora chime and it is out of sequence when chiming. It is striking the hour on the half hour. How do I get this corrected? Also the dial is silver with Seth Thomas in a red rectangle and no mention of sonora chime. Is this correct? Thanks, Randy
