    Quieting a clock

    I'm afraid I wasn't joking, although I had no idea if it would work or not. I've read they used to make special bedroon clocks with the verge pallets made out of rawhide to decrease the sound. I'm just trying to come up with an easy alternative to making a custom verge out of rawhide that...

    Quieting a clock

    I have a Sessions H-style wall regulator (time only) that has a lvery oud tick. I'm a light sleeper and would like to be able to quiet the clock so it wouldn't keep me awake. Is there anything that can be done in this regard? I was thinking of perhaps putting some tape or something on the...

    Anyone Else Notice A Big "Sold" Price Increase Lately?

    You have to remember, though, if you sold a clock at a regular auction, you would pay at least 10-20% to the auction house. Given that, eBay still is a bargin for the seller in general. Kevin

    Why so much?

    Looks like maybe a shill bidder ran up the price. If you take the top two biddres out, it would have sold for $81. Kevin

    Your newest acquisition. Volume 7

    Re: Your newest aquisition. Volume 7 Here's my latest, a circa 1930's New Haven Whitney model banjo. I never really liked the banjo design, but I wanted to get one with that classic look. This one was very well taken care of. Kevin

    Hamilton Pocket Watch inscription on inside of back case - Who might they be?

    I don't think there is any reason, from what you've said, to believe this watch was given to a Hamilton employee. These kinds of watches were bought by every company and given to retiring employees, a tradition I wish would come back! Kevin

    Your newest acquisition. Volume 7

    Re: Your newest aquisition. Volume 7 The original mock pendulum is actually glued to the back of the plate used to cover the aperature. I'm not sure I would want to spend the money to have it put back in operation right now, though. The dial could also use a resilvering, but it looks good...

    Your newest acquisition. Volume 7

    Re: Your newest aquisition. Volume 7 To answer your question Scottie, the crown and verge escapement was used on early clocks until about 1670 or so. This is the same escapement used on pocket watches up until the early 18th century. It was very inaccurate. The anchor escapement (so called...

    Your newest acquisition. Volume 7

    Re: Your newest aquisition. Volume 7 Here's my latest, a circa 1730 English Bracket clock by Henry Shipsea, Guildford. It originally had a verge escapement and was converted to an anchor escapement, as most all of these were. The story I got with it said it came out of a Scottish castle...

    Longcase/grandfather clocks in movies or tv shows

    There is a Riley Whiting grandfather clock in "The Patriot", near the beginning. Kind of funny, since the clock dates to the 1820's and the movie supposedly happened in 1776... Kevin
