    Napoleon clock What am i missing

    I'm not, every hole up the both sides matched, the count wheel same place as was the arm on outside. So it does look good but who knows until I get it. I'm also amazingly also bidding on another one just like it different name on it. But it won't be a donor.

    Napoleon clock What am i missing

    I amazingly found the only square French movement on ebay and from all appearances looks the same. Maybe the clock gods will smile upon me and the parts I need will be there. It was cheap enough I took the chance. Lots of round ones. I'll soon see.

    Lacquer, what am I doing wrong?

    The problem is you put lacquer back on. They never used it on old clocks. To me it's a pain in the ass. If it's so good why did you have to strip it. I read also it's bad for ultrasonic cleaners. I wax mine after cleaning and that's it. Then I wear rubber gloves when I have to mess with them...

    Can you tell me about this new grandfather
