    Idle Hands

    Had nothing across my bench of interest recently, so what could I do with my idle hands? Simple grab some brass sheet, raid the parts bin and just start making. Before you know it, you end up with a movement you have no real use for :chuckling: What do you do when you get bored? Video...

    B & Co ?

    I brought this just to keep my hands in the game. Obviously a Swiss movement in a plain gunmetal case. The seller has linked it to the Boston Watch Company and says it is a private label. I suspect none of that is correct. So, any info on who B&Co may be would be appreciated. B & Co solid gun...

    My Wife Dropped Me In It!

    So, my wife informs me she has taken in a cuckoo clock for me to fix. A friend of her mother brought the clock back from a recent trip to Austria. So, as my wife's family originally immigrated from Austria, it seems this somehow means I don't have a choice and must fix the clock or face the...

    Did Anyone Notice The Message Board Was Down?

    I am in Australia and all day yesterday (7:30am to 11:30pm) I was unable to access the message board or the main NAWCC sites. Was I the only? Did any other of our International members experience this outage?

    Your Dirtiest Movement Before & After Photos

    Inspired by RC in this thread ( CLICK HERE ) on a very dirty Sessions movement I repaired, I am starting this thread so we can see the worst others have taken on. I figure we might keep some out of the junk box if we show others what is possible. To Start, this is the dirtiest Vienna...

    Been a while!

    I brought half a dozen American movements to overhaul just to keep busy. This Sessions was the worst of them, so I thought I would get it out of the way first. I'm pretty sure if you remove the strip pallet while the mainspring is fully wound, things on the time side should move by themselves...

    German Table/Desk Clock ID ?????

    The only marking on this one is "Foreign" at the bottom of the dial. So, I assume it is German. The 8 day, spring in barrel time only movement seems to be of quite good quality and despite its age, shows no wear. The removable escapement is an interesting feature. Does this movement look...

    Longcase Seatboard?

    I am playing with an English 8 day longcase movement and a 13 inch painted arch dial. Eventually I will build a fairly traditional style case to house it. But at this stage a little reverse engineering is required. I figure once I make a seatboard, all other dimensions for the hood will flow...

    Weather House Clock Won't Work!

    I made the mistake of telling my eldest daughter all mechanical clocks were repairable. I just might regret that! Any ideas on why it won't work :chuckling:

    Japanese Galley Clock? Corrected to Gallery Clock

    Here is my latest purchase. I guess you would call it a galley clock, but I stand ready to be corrected. It is in fairly rough condition, but I have been curious about these since I saw a movement posted here a few years ago. According to Charlie Davis' wed site (Click Here) the "K" trademark is...

    Ansonia Frying Pan or Skillet Clock

    Well, here is one I brought just because I have never seen its like before. I though it must have contained an alarm clock movement, but was pleasantly surprised to find a dual wind, eight day, Ansonia lever movement inside. It all appears original, so I assume it is a factory product. Has...

    What Challenge Are You Taking On?

    This is my latest challenge. Three months ago a friend of mine bet me I couldn't complete a local half Marathon walk within the four hour and forty minute cut off time. So, Sunday I will be walking 21 & 1/2 kilometers (about 13 miles) all up hill. They bill it as the world's toughest half...

    Cincinnati 10000 Series Time Clock

    I took pity on this little time clock and it responded nicely to a little TLC. I have it working as it should, except the ribbon is dried out. I can't get a new ribbon locally, so I would need to ship one in. Before I do that, can anyone tell me if you are able to re-ink these ribbons? Stamp pad...

    Atomized cuckoo Reconstruction Project

    Re: atomized cuckoo give away I thought it might be interesting to start a thread on reconstructing the poor little Cuckoo clock Burkhard so kindly sent me all the way from Germany. So, this might take a while as I collect the bits and pieces I need, but I will get there Copied post to start...
