    Missing Square

    Hey Friends, How would you go about dealing with a twisted-off winding square? Repair it? (How?) Replace it if possible? It's from a Waterbury kitchen clock, grimy but in good shape except for this. I await your wisdom. bangster

    Anything you can tell me about this clock.

    Howdy Friends, Please tell me anything you can about this clock. It belong to a customer, brought it in, said it didn't work. When I finally go to it, found the reason it "didn't work" was because the chime silence was set. Unset it and all go. She said she got it at a yard sale or...

    Can This Be Fixed?

    This is a really nice Rhythm Watch Co battery movement; but a clumsy oaf (not me) knocked the clock off the wall, and it messed up the chime. Two notes are no longer chime-y. They are out of key and harsh and ugly. I know almost nothing about battery clocks of this complexity, but do you think...

    ST Hybrid chime correction problem.

    Problem is that every lobe on the center cam will trigger the hour chime. What do you think of that? I think the movement is essentially an ST 121.

    What Are These Watches?

    These two watches were among a bunch of old clock stuff I got from a nice lady whose husband had passed away and left her to deal with it. I know nothing about watches. I assume these two are American, though obviously I could be wrong. These are the best pics I can provide at this time. I...

    Seth Thomas Electric Hybrids

    Can you tell me the dates during which these Seth Thomas electric hybrids were made? There seem to be several models. The only ones I've seen previously were model (1), but I've just come across this model (2). They appear to be both based on the ST 124, but there are interesting...

    OLD CLOCK #3

    Escapement problem

    Locks and drop have always been hard for me, but I thought I finally had them figured out. Not so. There's this Ingraham shelf clock that I've been fighting since last Easter or before. The current issue is Not Running. It would tick tock for three or four teeth and then quit. I put it aside...

    Battery question

    This is almost certainly the wrong forum for this question, but it's the best I can think of until you guide me elsewhere. I set out to change the battery in my venerable Timex wristwatch, but when I took the back off, this is the arrangement I found. It's unlike any battery watch I've seen...

    LOCK AND DROP QUESTION

    I'm going to ask y'all a question I thought I knew the answer to. But now I'm not so certain. My other bête noir, besides the eternal ST hybrid, is this Ingraham half-deadbeat. I thought I had it running right. But now it won't keep running a-tall. The problem is lack of impulse. The EW tooth...
