    Clock Manufacturer Links?

    Almost the same as the previous one listed, but yet, a separate company: Ridgeway.

    No, RJ. This thread is OK. You must have gotten some flavor of that bug with a new posting at the top of a new page.

    Kobold Tall Case Clock

    To continue my hunt for the correct strike set-up for Kobold bim-bam strike tall case clocks, I need to speak with someone who has one of these clocks or has seen one of these clocks. I want to know how many rods are supposed to be in the correct chime unit. Also, I need to know the correct...

    Kobold Tall Case Clock

    Yep, I think my eye hallucinates. A parrot...:% That's why I never found it in the Kochmann book.

    Kobold Tall Case Clock

    What I am calling a parrot could be a jester. It has large hands out front, but they look like claws to me. I see what could be a pointed hat, but the image seems to have a beak.

    Kobold Tall Case Clock

    Richard, I was typing my reply when you posted yours. Thanks for the info. I'll fiddle with the trademark pic and see if I can render a clear image.

    Kobold Tall Case Clock

    Thanks for replying, Steve. I did find that link to that other formum and had read the replies. The person who started that thread is my customer. I didn't know this until I started to research this clock. I would feel more secure of my information if I got it from the braintrust here. I...

    Kobold Tall Case Clock

    One more. Also, this is a bim-bam strike with a passing strike on the half-hour, I believe. The passing strike is inoperable right now, but it's an easy fix.

    Kobold Tall Case Clock

    Sorry, these aren't the best pics, and I don't have a picture of the case. I think this clock is masquerading as an antique because the case looks to be antique, and the owner thinks it's an antique. But the movement is stamped 1954. Is that a year?

    Kobold Tall Case Clock

    Has anyone seen one of these? Do you have any information about it? I will attach some pictures in a second reply to avoid the repetitive display of the pics.

    Clock Giveaway!

    Very nice thread, guys. Well done. Hey, Scottie, I don't care what they say about you. You're OK in my book, but I warn you, my book ain't all that big. :clap:

    Chiming clock movement

    I am no expert on quartz movements, but I do work with one or two per month, mostly set-ups. I have not been thoroughly impressed with the sound they output. Your description, however, is intriguing. I have also had one gradually "lose its mind." It was a slightly frustrating experience for...

    Paint me a skeptic, but I don't think people are really buying these things at those prices.

    Homemade Grasshopper Escapement (Pics)

    Nice work, Sooth. :thumb: It certainly would make a great teaching tool. It's large enough to be clearly seen by a group. Maybe you can be to the wooden demo escapement world what Beeler is to the NAWCC Museum exhibit. Now to find 100 or so students...
