    Trying to date this Seth Thomas gothic /cathedral clock

    I'm trying to date this nice cathedral clock. I guessing around 1910?, but too many conflicting entries in their catalog. The stamp on the bottom of the clock looks like 5179 , and missing the typical letter month code.

    no power issue - 1050-020 need advice

    Apologies for not getting back sooner... After completing the drop test a few times I was able to narrow down the issue. I narrowed it down to one location where I wasn't able to get movement. (see photo). After that it took me longer than it should have to remove the pallet arbor, mainly...

    I dropped tested it again today. I'm checking to see what moved and where. This time pinions /arbors moved First drop test I barely dropped it

    Apologies, I call it as I see it. What I thought I saw originally seems not to be the case the further you you get into the movement. I still say this movement looks better than the way it's acting, I'm just failing to see the root cause.

    Update Most of time train is seized up. It won't budge. I started the disassembly because as most have said, there are things I can't see hidden in those bearings

    Thank you Willie X excellent idea. RC this clock is charitable work I got talked into from Habit for Humanity. It's from a Thomas Tompian HM model. They were hoping to get more $$ for it in running condition. I get nothing out of this labor, that's why the shortcuts...

    Found it! Thanks to both of you. I would never have expected a 5th off center post like that. I will definitely try . As you said I have nothing to lose at this point. It makes sense to me that once the pallet fork is out, spring wound, it should/could free what's binding

    I see how it's done Willie X. Thanks I do appreciate the effort on your part. I still don't see what your referring to...... "Don't forget to remove the center post nut"

    Easy for you ,difficult for me Willie X. I have a 4 year old grandson here for the weekend. Just shoot me now...lol I do have a question though "Don't forget to remove the center post nut" My old eyes sees nothing resembling a nut. Terminology maybe?

    After inspecting the pallet fork again, I think the risk of bending that pinion is too high. It's a tad longer than surrounding pinions. I think it may just compound the issue. Great idea though..

    I ran into a issue removing the pallet fork. Rather then break it I'll ask first. How exactly is it removed?

    No noise Willie X, other than normal, nothing shook loose, for me anyway. I haven't removed the pallet fork. I didn't think of it actually. No oiling but I did use a contact cleaner sparingly on pivots and the time train arbors . It's been successful for me on really old gummed up movements. I'm...
