    Big Ben & Baby Ben contain radium?

    I don't mind people joking around. But it would be nice to get some serious answers. For example, I've heard that these dials can give off radon & gamma ray's. Any truth in that? I'm starting to think if I want real answers I'll have to look elsewhere.

    Big Ben & Baby Ben contain radium?

    My first grandfather clock!

    Got this Ridgeway at an estate auction last weekend. Paid $425. Did I get a good deal? It's oak. I think it's a beautiful clock and it works great! I believe it's a 1997 model. The guy said they bought it new at a furniture store in 2000 for nearly $4000. Said it was a gift for his mom. I...
