    Bent escape wheel teeth

    Picked up a supposedly E.N. Welch Gingerbread clock for 30 bucks just to play a round with. Opened it up and found a generic no name movement with this escape wheel. These teeth seem to be rolled over in the opposite direction than I would expect. Bent tips are hitting on the pallets and the...

    Hello All. I am looking to confirm if I have to split the plates on this Kieninger movement to replace the cables? I am a hobbiest and have rebuilt an Urgos triple chime but only once.

    Thankful for my clock repair experience

    Just a quick post to thank this board and everyone who contributes from it. If not for this board and my clock experience I would never knew how or attempted to remove and replace these Victor Victrola motor springs. These monsters are 1 1/4 x .015 x 17 feet long. More than a little scary.
