    Got My Covid Vaccination on Monday

    I wish i had waited till the end of the month and get the Pfizer, like my wife did. But the advice was take the first one you can get.Not sure if the last shot will be Astra or something else, as there is talk it may be a mix and match.

    Replacing pin on verge?

    Yes these pins can be replaced, thinking yes they are hardened steel of a small diameter. I have had this happen to a small anniversary clock i had, cant remember what happened after it was repaired, thinking something was not right and my repair job, did not work out.

    Is there a for sale section?

    Not a lot of value in most 400 day clocks. Maybe worth 20 dollars in running condition.

    Sessions mantle clock

    Yes you can adjust a clock while running, by pushing the minute hand clock wise to set the time, pause at the half hours and hours to let it strike. And yes you can wind the clock too while its running.

    DTH munroe, i for sure never thought of you as a amatuer. There are different methods that we all use for doing things. Stick with what works best for you.

    ultrasonic cleaner

    I dilute per instructions on container, works awesome for me. I have aheater but it takes a while before warm, even warm great results. I really dislike ammonia smells in my home. One reason why i like Deox.

    I think it would work Bruce. I prefer older clocks to newer ones.

    Lions and tigers and bears! Oh my!

    This website has the most pictures and postings in one place. I have well over a thousand members in my Facebook group, of horology. Very few participate. I wish at times that newbies would do a little more research, rather than asking the same questions over and over. I hope that more people...

    What do you use in your ultrasonic?

    My opion is in the long run, using a good clock cleaner pays off in many ways. I dont want ammonia or flamable substances in my ultrasonic.
