    Sangamo, self winding.

    So I have just recently acquired one of the 11 jewel clocks as well. Did you ever find a motor? I'm just amazed after researching, the quality of these clocks and such short manufacture. Course cost and price was obviously the problem during the entire life of these clocks. My clock cost...

    Help Grandfather Clock Junghans A 08 with Tube Chimes

    Did you purchase the clock? I just picked up the one I was inquiring about. My client is interested if I can get it working. I was able to purchase it cheap enough, it will be a fun project even if I keep it. The big drawing factor to me on this one is....Its HUGE! I told my wife she could...

    No I have another user ID...….. Dan Jeffries is my normal and for some reason, My NAWCC and msg board are 2 different ID's. Anyhow, I've been a NAWCC member since 94! haha. So this is really a long time coming! I guess I need to take time to merge the ID's......

    Vienna Regulator ID help?

    I had a customer who brought is clock in and wants to know everything about it. It fairly rough and has a lot of worm damage, to the point one of the movement bracket is just about powder. you can see I installed a simple l bracket where someone had glued a large block of wood to hold it up...

    Estate sale Tall case find

    Just wanted to share this Tall case I found over the weekend for unreal cheap. I almost felt bad.... I passed by it a couple times thinking they would want unreal $$ because it wasn't even marked. So I asked one of workers and they said "oh we aren't sure what they are wanting, Its broken. You...

    Help Grandfather Clock Junghans A 08 with Tube Chimes

    I just posted an inquiry about this same type clock, and Shutterbug, pointed me to this one. I worked on one of these over a decade ago, so I was trying to confirm my memory, in that these were Junghans. And I do remember getting the chime to consistently chime was quite the chore, and it...

    Junghans Grandfather clock?

    Thanks that's exactly what I needed......this is definitely the same type clock. I thought it was a Junghans, and I do remember it being quite the chore to get to chime properly. Isn't that ironic, that the same question just came up the other day on same "unique" clock. I say unique cause...

    Hi all, I have a friend who is interested in purchasing this GF clock here in GA. He is wanting to check it out for him. He shared these pictures with me, and I'm setting up with current owner to stop by. I have worked on one similar years ago, and I vaguely remember it being a Junghans...

    American New Haven ID help???

    So after everyone's comment I have concurred what I already knew, while unique, nothing too rare overall. My fellow clock friend/collector says the creatures up top appear to be Griffins, Gryphons.....however you want to spell them.... body of lion, wings and head of a bird. Of course with...

    American New Haven ID help???

    I believe its antique, I think the back board is a replacement, there is not extra holes and it appears to be newer, but the entire rest of case seems antique/authentic. It was refinished several years ago, but if I shot a back pic, you could tell its old. And again, the top piece is warped...

    American New Haven ID help???

    Good morning, I had a client bring me this clock that they recently inherited and of course they want to know history, model etc. I've told them it was a gingerbread, kitchen clock made by New Haven I believe early 1900's, but that doesn't suffice. They are just intrigued by the gargoyles up...

    My "new" rare 8 bell Sonora Seth Thomas

    Well figured out the mystery on my clock. Just read slower Dan.......... If I had read in detail I would have saw it the first go around. This is a Model 2002 and not a 2003. The 2002 was the identical clock but in a plain mahogany case, and mahogany grille sides. So mystery solved...

    My "new" rare 8 bell Sonora Seth Thomas

    Hey folks.... Just wanted to share my latest acquisition.....I purchased this 8 bell Sonora clock for a very, very reasonable price from a customer who didn't want to spend the money to service and replace a couple bushings. It does function and I still need to service it, but when it was...

    Seth Thomas #5 Post clock

    Well the research is coming together fairly easy on this clock as the current owner has the story fairly correct. The clock did service at McGee Transportation Museum right outside of Bloomsburg PA which opened in the 60's and then closed when Mr. McGee died in 72. All his museum pieces were...
