    Kundo Clock Help Needed

    Hello. Still running 26 hours later! These are the first 2 clocks I have ever worked on. I don't know how you guys do it. It must drive you crazy sometimes. Thanks for your help and I am sure something will go wrong sooner or later. It is fun though to check up on the forum

    Kundo Clock Help Needed

    Wayne if you look back at #20 I have the washers aligned on the cannon pinion but have added a 3rd tension washer. It seems to be working!? I thought that without the second tension washer I could not get the minute hand tighter so that it did not slide for the 3 to the 6 by tapping on the...

    Hey Rough. so I put the bent edge facing out against the flat washer (so the cup is facing inwards to the plate). The flat washer then is touching the hour hand. There seems to be a lot of play so maybe a second tension washer facing out against the flat washer?

    Hi. Well tore the Kundo mini down. With hands it stops in 10 minutes. Hands off has been going now for 5 hours. Any suggestions on why the hands are causing it to stop? I'll try anything at this point. When the hands are on if I push the hour hand on all the way (with washers) in then...

    Kundo Clock Help Needed

    Removed the hands and face and started from scratch from the washer on pinion shaft out wards. I don't think I am getting enough and then too much friction between hands and washers. I am going to get 2-3000 grit pads to polish the brass on hands. I don't know how you guys do it going from...

    So it has been 24 hours since I got the tension washer and the clock is humming along losing a little less than a minute a day. I will not complain. I was able to get washers from Laurie(?) at the Horolovar store. They also replaced my mainspring and serviced it. Timesavers had some washers...

    Kundo Clock Help Needed

    Kurt. No its short, the pendulum doesn't fit in cup even and there is a kink about 1 inch from the bottom end. These 2 clocks have sat in my parents house for 30-40 years without being touched so being a newbie I am trying my best. Thanks for your help!!
