    What type of pendululum does this clock need?

    I recently bought a Seth Thomas Schoolhouse clock or so it was called but it has a bell on the inside nor does it have the correct pendulum either. The pendulum that was sent with the clock isn't the correct pendulum as there is no way to attach it to the suspension wire which is only about 2...

    Seth Thomas Gallery with a broken hinge

    I just received a Seth Thomas Gallery clock and when I took it out of the box and opened the bezel, the bezel and convex glass came off in my hands. The seller claims it wasn't like that before shipping and of course he blamed the shipper. Anyhow would anyone have an idea how this could be...

    Needing a Pendulum

    I'm in search of a pendulum for a Seth Thomas Cathedral Beehive with a 48R movement. Would someone have one to sell or maybe point me in the right direction? This pendulum is 5" long, top to bottom and weighs 3 ounces. This what it looks like: Thanks, Ted

    Plugging the winding holes on an ogee dial

    Well to be honest I hope I don't have to, but sometimes the measurements don't add up or someone else can't read a tape measure. If I want to stay with the proper period dial to get what I want I may have to plug and then re drill the holes at the proper places. But then I'd have to have the...

    Plugging the winding holes on an ogee dial

    Bruce, That's the drawback to plugging holes in a dial, I don't have the talent to match up the paint so I'd have to send it to a restorer. I've had 3 dials done by the Dial House in Ga. and I've been really pleased. But I haven't tried to plug any holes yet I was just wondering if there was a...

    Plugging the winding holes on an ogee dial

    Does anyone know how or what to use to plug the winding holes on an ogee dial? Would epoxy putty work? I have 2 ogee clocks that don't have original dials. I would like to put period dials back on them, not the knock off dials that are all the same in design. I like to keep my clocks as...

    Seth Thomas Sonora Chimes

    I've seen clocks with 2 types of Sonora chimes, clocks that chimes on a series of bell, and I've also seen clocks with the second movement of Sonora chimes but the hammers strike on a series of bars. Are both types of chimes the bells and the bars both considered Sonora chimes?

    Who made this movement.

    Well Steven, it's beyond me, if you think it's a Elisha Manross clock your word seems gospel with me. Too bad there isn't a label on the inside but I realize that we can't have everything. I'm just excited that you've educated me to the place we're at now. Is there anywhere a replacement label...

    Who made this movement.

    I have decided to post some photos of the clock, maybe someone wiser and more in the know can identify this clock. Thanks, Ted

    Who made this movement.

    I've found an ogee that is a no name, can anyone identify this movement? Compared to others this movement has a very unique plate on it. Any ideas? Thanks, Ted

    Is this a Chauncey Jerome Movement

    Everyone that gave their opinions and shared their information I want to say thank you. I've learned and discovered a lot these past few days, but the seller of the Chauncey Jerome Ogee clock changed his mind after I worked to discover if the movement was a Jerome. So I still don't have my first...

    Is this a Chauncey Jerome Movement

    Steven, I don't know where to start to say thank you. This is my 1st Chauncey Jerome clock and I'm been leery of buying it because of how the movement was signed but if I was going to make this investment I didn't want to get a bogus movement. The web site gave me a ton of information, not...

    Is this a Chauncey Jerome Movement

    I'm looking at a Chauncey Jerome Ogee clock that the label says was built in Bristol, Connecticut. My question is the only markings on the movement, that I can find, is 7686 at the shaft for the hands. I thought Jerome put his name or initials on his movements. Can someone assist me, if it's not...

    Seth Thomas Seth Thomas Lever Clock Dial

    I'm beginning to find that the paper dial was a standard issue on these clocks. The clock without a dial I want to restore and I want to make it like was originally.

    Seth Thomas Seth Thomas Lever Clock Dial

    I'm currently restoring a Seth Thomas lever clock but I'm puzzled by the dial. My clock hasn't a dial, just the brass pan that the glass and bezel is attached to. Was this dial originally a painted dial or what? I have another lever clock with what looks like a paper dial. which is it? Thanks, Ted

    -William-S-Johnson-background-paper-repair-or save.

    I have a William S Johnson OG clock that I'm in the process of having the dial redone to it's original state. There was a paper dial on the clock but when I took that off, to my surprise I think I discovered the original dial which is being redone at the Dialhouse (and did I say the dial is made...

    Seth Thomas with a #5 movement?

    Thanks everyone for the info but the clock slipped away from me and was bought by another bidder. I wanted it so badly but it went to my limit but it was a beehive that I've become so attached to, as I have 5 of them currently. My collection is small as I only have 14 in my collection, with 11...

    Seth Thomas with a #5 movement?

    Hello Bruce, If Trans Duy Ly says there's a no. 5 Seth Thomas movement, well his word is gospel in my opinion. Now I feel more comfortable dealing on the Beehive that I mentioned. I just didn't want to buy a clock that someone had taken 2 clocks to make one. Again thanks, Ted
