    Best battery quartz movement, a temporary replacement for a sick weight movement

    Hi. Well I finally found a local clocksmith to repair my 8-day E.W. Adams strap movement. Figure it will take a month or two. In the meantime I thought I would temporarily install a battery-powered movement, my first experience with these modern substitutes. When my Adams movement returns...

    Need advice for an E. W. Adams 8 day weight clock repair

    Thank You Uhralt for taking the time to respond. I have found a technician who works out of his home fairly near me in suburban Chicago. He has the movement now and is going to re-bush the escape wheel and a few others. And will check for other problems, the myriad of things that a 180 year...

    How to protect a peeling painted panel?

    Hi. Just acquired in an auction a triple panel Seth-Tom Thomaston 7day weight column weight clock for $12. (shipping was $90, of well) In nice shape. With original panels I think. But paint is beginning to peel. Considered coating it with something. Any ideas? Michael

    Need digital copy of Public Square New Haven panel

    Thank you Sooth. Your second attachment should work to produce a print to place behind the original to fill in the gaps. Probably better is for me to photograph or scan my incomplete original and in Photoshop add the church from your photo. Them make a new print to add behind a clear piece of...

    Need dial for a Birge and Mallory triple decker

    Hello- A few weeks ago I acquired a Birge and Mallory 8 day triple decker column clock (see photograph). I ultrasonic bathed the large strap movement, cleaned up the case, and did some minor repairs. Most pivots seem reasonable, two being replaced. It is a nice clock. Keeps good time. The...

    Can you ID this Welch clock?

    Thank you Steven for the three patent drawings. By mistake I posted the later Horton diagram of 1882 which is not the pendulum I have. Mine has a patent date of Sept. 4, 1877 stamped on the face,. So it is probably the original Jacot design. Jim- for some reason I failed to notice the square...

    Can you ID this Welch clock?

    Jim. I re-read your response. Did any other clock company use Jacot's pendulum?

    Can you ID this Welch clock?

    Thanks Jim, Uhralt, Willie, and Steve. My Jacot pendulum has a patent date of 1877. So were they manufactured by / for Welch exclusively? What connection if any was with Jacot, the watchmaker? And who was E. Horton? The clock keeps good time. I have been doing a "push-pull" to adjust the...

    Can you ID this Welch clock?

    Thanks Dick. I should have been able to deduce the name given the incomplete label and some help from the Savage and Polite website. But you made it easy for me. Thanks again. The name, the title character of the Verdi opera is right in keeping with Mr. Welch's passion for opera...

    Can you ID this Welch clock?

    Hello- Purchased my first E.N. Welch clock in auction. The label on the back is part missing. Have yet to find a copy of Tran du ly's Welch book at a price I can afford. The clock is in good shape and has a Jacot regulator pendulum. Attached are two photos of the clock. Thanks for any...

    Need digital copy of Public Square New Haven panel

    Hi. I have a J.C. Brown 8 day OG. It has what I think is the original painted panel showing a scene in the public square of New Haven. A church is the centerpiece of the scene. Trouble is the painted image of the church has flaked off leaving clear glass. Why only the church? If it was a...

    Need Label for an Orrin Hart weight clock

    Hello Jim- Sorry for the late response. I made a couple of improvements to the Orrin Hart label I created with your help. Thanks again. (The final version is attached) I had OfficeMax make a copy to paste inside the clock. After many experiments the best method I found to duplicate an...

    Need Label for an Orrin Hart weight clock

    Thank you Jim. Sorry for the late reply. It has been a busy week here as it is the end of a semester and my grades are due soon. Your photos came through sharp and clear. Much sharper than the image I downloaded from an auction site. Will have to tone them down a bit to blend them in. But...

    Thanks Jim for the reply and your offer. Yes, I would be glad to receive photos of the areas of the label I had to PhotoShop fudge in.

    Need Label for an Orrin Hart weight clock

    Hi. This is probably the wrong thread to post this question. I am restoring an Orrin Hart wood movement clock which is missing the label inside the case. I was able to find a photo of one on line but needed a lot of PhotoShopping to fudge details which were not in the original. See the...
