I'm guessing you are referring to the mounting screw that clamps the bird to the flat shaft. Because the shaft that the bird attaches to is flat I can't really rotate the bird but I could move the bird to the left or to the right. Do you think that would work?
I have a cuckoo clock whereas the cuckoo bird tips out rather than swinging out on the rod. My problem is how to get the door to swing open far enough to see the bird say 90 degrees. If I put a longer wire on the door then I have the problem of not closing then. This is the first one...
After rebuilding this movement and trying to figure out why it's running way fast. Well after do some further looking in the box the customer brought me I find the answer. Take a look at the picture of the rear side of the movement of the pendulum leader. I'm always still amazed as to what I find!
I got this in for a rebuild and I finished it up. I installed six bushings in it. I attached the pendulum and the regulating but is at the bottom of it's travel and it's running fast. It's puzzling me as to why it's running fast. Thanks for your help and replies.
I'm looking for directions on how to set up the calendar with the snail type cam on the back of the clock movement to the calendar mechanism. If anyone has these directions I'd appreciate that very much.
I have the movement level. I cant get the wires right. I was wondering if the clock is not running then having the swingers hanging straight down what can I look at to see if the wires are in the right position.
I have a double swinger that I'm trying to get ticking. I rebuilt the movement with bushings. I'm unable to find the sweet spot to get it ticking. The wires have to be bent just right. Have you done this before? I need help!
I just rebuilt this double swing cuckoo and I'm having trouble getting it to tic because I'm not sure how to bend the wires to get it to run. Is there a particular way to adjust the wires in a neutral position? I've added a couple of pictures.
I received in for repair this clock in pieces. The body of the clock is loose from the base and the side and top piece is off the case. Pictures will describe it better. What can I use to adhere the body to the base and reattach the top and side black onyx? Originally the body was tied...
