    Well, I'm pretty decent at putting a clock in beat by ear. It's like listening to a metronome. :-)

    Never heard of Shawn Keith. I have heard of Tim Hemry, but I've never seen or played any of his work. Best wishes with your project! Mike

    Back for another season

    Frank, Were I younger, maybe. I have spinal stenosis, and arthritis at all levels of my spine. It's caused nerve damage so I get to deal with Neuropathy and numbness in my feet. This makes walking difficult, but worst of all it has impacted my organ playing. I can't play things like I used...

    Back for another season

    Yes, wow, I'm an organist. I lucked out. Covid hasn't affected me at all (except, possibly, making me more lazy). The church went to an online worship format, and I'm involved with the music end of that, so I haven't lost the paycheck. I get down there once a week or so just to play the...

    Back for another season

    Hi All! Hope you had a good winter. Unfortunately, the guy who was supposed to wire my building up to the main power didn't get it done before the cold weather, so I couldn't get out there with the cold. I suppose I really should hire a professional to do it, but hey, I can pay my cousin in...

    Holiday Greetings!

    Hi All. Hope everything is well with everyone. It's been too cold to be in the shop-- my cousin was supposed to help me get the power hooked up so i could get heat ion there. Oh well, I've got other things I can do throughout the winter. Hope everyone is well, and all clocks are in beat...

    Kundo Anniversary Clock

    I think that's where I am. When i get it close, it still doesn't want to go. I can see a visible reduction with each swing.

    Kundo Anniversary Clock

    Still plugging away at this. Should the ticks happen at 180 degrees from each other?

    Kundo

    Duh... It just hit me. I just realized that "Kundo" is an abbreviation of Kieninger UND Obergfell. I forgot that the Germans love to shorten things, for ex. Kriminalpolizei = Kripo.

    Beautiful movement! I'd love to have one of those.

    Cracked Pinion

    Hi, How does one change this? Is it friction held? It's got a crack. I've got a minute arbor from another Ingraham clock but the arbor is too long to swap the unit out. If I cannot find another, I have to either fix or replace this one. Thanks!

    Kundo Anniversary Clock

    Yeah, I've had experience with other things. For a long time, I couldn't get my head around bushings.When I finally started doing it, it wasn't so bad. I haven't gotten myself into a bushing mess yet that I have to figure out how I'm going to get out of it.

    Kundo Anniversary Clock

    I first tried Wayne's method. It seemed to be right, but I guess it wasn't. It was turning about 3/4 of a turn before each click. If the clock is in beat, does that mean the overswing be right? Or, if I get it in beat and the overswing is not right, then it isn't in beat? Thanks All!

    Kundo Anniversary Clock

    Thanks for the encouragement, Woodlawn. I'm not expecting to get this overnight, but these are a little harder to get on the same page with. With mantle clocks, kitchen clocks, etc., They're easier to sort out, but these seem to be much more subtle.

    Kundo Anniversary Clock

    OK. I don't know if this means anything, but the ticks don't seem to be very strong. Looking at the escape wheel, the exit seems louder than the entrance.

    Kundo Anniversary Clock

    OK. Here's where it stands now. I put the little protractor cut-out and lined it up as per the Horolaver book. The ticks were coming at different places on the protractor, so I tweaked the top adjustment. I'm not sure it's right yet. The ticks are happening as the mark crosses the lines...

    Ebay Shipping Costs

    Hi, Question for you Ebay vets. How do the sellers determining shipping prices? Sometimes shipping is what I expect it to be, sometimes quite a bit more. But, when I see one seller ship USPS economy for something like 10 bucks, and another ship the same thing from the same area via USPS...

    Kundo Anniversary Clock

    I had to open the fork tines just a bit more. They were touching. Then I loosend the screw and dropped the fork just a bit. I wonder if I dropped it too much-- when I turn the pendulum the tic tocks happen at about a quarter turn. Still, the pendulum and fork seem to be moving easier. I'm...

    Kundo Anniversary Clock

    OK. I understand about the overswing. After I got it to what I thought was "in beat," I made 1 complete turn to start the clock. For a few min, there's overswing, but you can see it losing power with each turn. If it's that obvious of such a delicate clock, then there's something not right...

    Kundo Anniversary Clock

    Well, I got this thing back together. I think it together right. I needed to put a new suspension unit on it. I ordered the needed unit from Horolovar, and verified it was the right one with the book. So, it's not running yet. I thought it was in beat, but maybe not. If I understand...
