I have a customer who has an Ansonia single rod strike mantle clock movement with a B 21 mark on the back. I have a similar movement with an A 21 mark on the back. Are the movements different or is the A or B marking some sort of manufacturing dating stamp?
I recently purchased this Model 311 Lenzkirch clock. I was wondering if anyone could tell me what
the two brass hourglass knobs are to the left of the movement bracket. They have holes in them and
seem to line up with the holes in the case.
Hi I purchased an Atmos clock that was not working. I took it to a reputable repair shop to have it looked at. They did a complete overhaul and I took it home. It runs 10 days sometimes 2 weeks and then stops at 2 minutes to five. If I move the minute hand slightly it will start to run...
Hi I have a Gilbert Cosey Corner Pattern P horse clock that someone removed the paint on the horse race scene on the bottom. I am looking for an original Picture of the front of this clock to reproduce the paint colors.

I mainly collect and repair spring and weight driven pendulum clocks but I admit I like the little 8 day balance wheel clocks. I get them with dirty movements that need cleaning and bushings to make them keep time again. I have a few that seem to run to fast even with the slow fast lever all...
Hi I have a ansonia 5 1/2 round movement out of a cabinet # 38 clock. My question is how to adjust the strike so it strikes on the hour and the half hour. It strikes at about 1 minute after 12 and 31 minutes after the hour. I see the little disk behind the hand arbor with the 2 pins that...
I have a mantle clock with this movement. The fork at the bottom of the verge is about twice as wide as the pendulum rod. The verge will move faster than the pendulum. Is this normal? I don't see how to decrease the width of the fork to make the rod fit tighter.
