    Ansonia jewelers pin regulator

    No pics of the bottom were taken. It is a simple wood bottom, walnut of appropriate age. There is no damage to the inside of the case indicating a weight crash. Some of the glass retaining putty is coming loose and will need to be replaced. Glass is old and wavey.

    Ansonia jewelers pin regulator

    Found this recently and have it running. It resembles an Ansonia No. 17. Height is 85", width 18". Case is walnut with a paneled back. The movement appears to be French. No marks except the number "72" stamped on the works. Has it been cut down after a fall and made into a floor standing clock...

    I recently found a French marple clock with the same markings. I already know about JE Caldwell jewelers.

    8 or 9 tube antique clock movement

    Purchased a basket case movement. No sign of the case or other parts. On the dial it states "built by Max ?embeck. I cannot locate any information on this gentleman. Beautiful dial, what there is of it.

    Identification of westminster movement

    Thanks to everyone for the effort. It is currently in the ultrasonic. The markings remind me of hand scraped ways on a lathe or milling machine.

    Identification of westminster movement

    From a repairmans horde it is missing both fans, one barrel and its spring. With the unusual finish on the plates i would like to get it running. Can anyone identify the maker? The markings tend to make me think its German.

    Post Your H. Endler Clocks Here

    Posting my H. Endler clock. It is about 48" high and is a two weight clock. I assume it is 1895 or so given the 160493 serial number. It is also interesting that the H.E. is almost completely worn away. Perhaps deliberately?.

    Seth Thomas 120F minute shaft clutch issues

    Does anyone have some pictures of the clutch properly installed in the minute shaft? I received one for repair and the minute hand will not advance. Discovered the clutch spring is missing. My somewhat faulty memory tells me it goes on the back of the minute shaft with a small bushing.

    Cuckoo bellows material

    Jewlers use a variety of small shaped steel beads for cleaning jewelry. Commonly called jewelers steel shot. I have been using it for a few years. It cnl also be used with a bit of liquid soap for cleaning clock plates and leaves a nice patina. Be careful it can break delicate parts.

    Cuckoo bellows material

    After a customer dropped off 12 cuckoos for repair i decided to give tyvek another try. A tyvek envelope was dismembered and tumbled with jewelers steel media for 4 hours. Worked great, material is nice and pliable. Just make sure to remove that pesky adhesive strip first.

    Seth Thomas 77A movement

    Just received this clock. During my pre-tear down checks i noted it is missing an arbor and lever. Arbor located at the top right from the back of the clock. It looks like the lever was intended to engage the large wheel on the winding arbor. The clock runs well without it. Does the missing...

    Large Russian regulator

    Thank you Oleg and Tom. The explanation for the slots in the case makes perfect sense. How ingenious our ancrstors were. Tom, i will take a closer look at the harp. The gridiron pendulum is what made me doubt that it was a "Vienna" regulator.

    Large Russian regulator

    The top of the case has a slot on each side, perhaps it originally housed a two weight movement?
