I am building John Wilding's British Regulator Clock and I am looking for a source of invar rod. He specifies 1/4 inch but I suppose 5/16 could be used. Is there an alternative considering the issues you are seeing? Thanks for any help.
I repaired a Revere 2 chime Bracket clock Model #430 with these bushings. It may have something to do with the fact that the Telechron motor runs at 60 RPM. I made new bushings out of oil
filled bronze bearing material. The wood bushings looked ok but I
was not sure they were correct. First time...
