I did find another marine clock on the net with the Edward of Glasgow name with the same dimensions and look (below), not with the "pul-syn-etic" movement.
I took a couple of photos of the movement on my clock (below). The inspection date of "15-9-25" with the initials "SJ" or "ST" on the...
Just picked up this slave clock, and was wondering if anybody can help me locate the ship it came off?
It's a brass Gents marine clock marked on the face as "Edward Glasgow - Pul-syn-etic", and the movement is marked as being inspected on 9-15-25. I assume that the clock was made for a ship...
Got it to run down to 4.5 V. Will not run on 3.0V yet.
Peter, I checked the clock with your list.
1. The resistance is 2.7K ohms as I slowly ran the pendulum through it's swing.
2. Taking the copper ring off didn't do anything.
3. Didn't move the magnet, but I did tilt the movement...
I think I tried everything suggested so far, except re-zapping the magnet.
The magnet is set so the south pole is the end that goes through the coil. I did flip it around, and the clock didn't work.
I flipped the battery leads around, and the clock didn't work.
I added rare earth magnet...
I do get the coil to move the compass needle a little bit with 1.5V applied to it (with the magnet removed).
LED test light is 1.5V LED bulb with some lead wires. I'm observing the contacts of the clock.
Battery is hooked up to run the clock. + end of of the LED is hooked up to the + side...
Ok - Got the clock running on a 9V battery - pendulum swings pretty fast. Runs on 6V. I'm happy that it's running, but need to get it to run on 1.5V now.
Tried 3V, 4.5V doesn't run.
I checked the magnet using the one I used to check my Bulle magnet (using a compass, what distance the...
I hope somebody here knows these clocks.
Pretty sure it's from the 1920's, Serial Number 49441 - Leon Hatot clock movement
Clock doesn't work. Made a LED test light, and when pendulum swings, I get a pulse (very constant) at the coil. Seems like 1.5V and a ground signal is getting to the...
Pretty sure it's from the 1920's, Serial Number 49441 - Leon Hatot clock movement - Clockette model.
Can anyone date it?
Need to look at it to see if it's in running condition. Hopefully, somebody here can help out if there's a problem.
That is a Martin-Fischer Magneta (Swiss) slave clock. Your right with the voltage (1.5V) and one pulse per minute. Nice Clock.
I have 5 (4 wall and 1 shelf) of them in various sizes. The last one is not mine, but one that was in the lobby of the Singer Building in NYC.
Re: Adjustments, Adjustments, Adjustments..
I think I have it close. Maybe a little slow, but ok. The thumb screw is pretty high, but seems to be running on time. Need some more time to see.
