Can anyone identify the clock or knows anything about it.
Any help would be appreciated.

Can anyone help me indentify a clock movement. On the front plate there is a dianond inside a circle with what appears to be "J.". It does half and hour strike. Your help would be appreciated.

I just picked up this movement for cleaning however I think the weights were in the wrong place when I picked it up.The weights are 16#, 9#, 7#.
My thinking is 16# for chime 9# for strike and 7# for time. Can anyone help me.

Can anyone help?. Has anyone heard of E. Thomas Clock Co. in Thomaston, Conn. My son recently purchased one at a swap meet for $30.00 but I don't have any knowledge about it at all.
I would appreciate any comments.

I have ordered an escape wheel blank, no pinion. Can anyone tell me how the gear for the second hand comes off the escape wheel pinion. Is it pressed on? I would appreciate any and all comments.
Could anyone tell me if the Welby movements were made by Hermle?. It appears to be a copy of the 350-060. I have a repair with a broken off tooth on the strike barrel. I would appreciate your comments. I hate to spend $100 to have a new tooth installed on such an old movement.
I have just received a clock, no name just stamped 20320 on both plates, for repair and find it has a tooth missing off the time mainspring barrel. Any idea of the maker and where to get another barrel. Most of you will think the next question really dumb. I see somewhat of a triangle beside...
I have a customer who would like to get in touch with a clock man who did work for him a number of years ago in Glendale CA. His name is Adolf Diaz. Adolf, if you are around or anyone who might know him please email me. firstname.lastname@example.org
A friend asked me if I could possibly get this going again. There are no electric components at all in the base, just two wires leading to the movement and I have no idea at all what should be there. Can anyone help or any suggestions. It would be greatly appreciated.
I just acquired a bracket clock and on the dial is Seth Thomas and at the bottom of the dial is German Movement. On the back is Exeter-W.
I thought Seth Thomas clocks were onlt made in America.
Can anyone help. The name on the dial is SEIKOSHA and there is a very worn paper decal on the back of the case with "CLOCK ROYAL" with either Japanese or Chinese writting. The clock appears to be very old.

This clock's back plate is in three pieces. The center piece is triangular shaped with about 1/8" between the pieces. There is a letter H stamped on the center piece four numbers below that. Any idea who made it. It is a quality movement.

Over the last thirty five years I have repaired hundreds of pocket watches but I have never even tried to replace a missing part. In looking at one of my parts book there are terms I don't understand. Pallet forks with ROUND OR SQUARE backs, and numbers like 1688 & 1690 etc, where do these...
