  1. POWERSTROKE

    Cuckoo clock rings.

    It turns easily by hand. Just can’t figure out what the problem is runs absolutely great with music and the front waterwheel. When I hook the man and dog up it will run and stop intermittently. I’m thinking there is an out of balance or something on that platform? I polished the “axle” that the...

    My plan is to repair it for sure. God knows what the condition is.

    Regula 20?

    I have someone potentially dropping off a clock with a regula 20….I’m not sure if I’ve run across one of these yet? They’d aid it was “seized”. if need be can a 25 be used in place of this?
  4. POWERSTROKE

    Cuckoo clock rings.

    So, update. Every time I connect that belt, and I’ve done it with this belt and waxed string, it stalls the box. The movment is in good shape. Runs amazing without that belt on.

    How do I remove hand nuts if perhaps a glue was used?

    Heat. The opening and closing of the doors is the timing of the gathering pallet and pin that lifts the lever between the movement. Put a drop of oil on the threads and use a lighter and it will come right off

    Cuckoo clock rings.

    Timesavers sells them together. My question is more of why does the rubber fit the one side perfectly in the groove and slightly to wide in the pulley?
  7. POWERSTROKE

    Cuckoo clock rings.

    So this is the first of these I’ve encountered. Every other one was gear driven in one way or another. I’ve had this for about 6 months, it was given to me in very good condition other than a couple small things. I ordered the rubber rings months ago by measuring center to center on the pulleys...

    Cuckoo strikes once when winding

    I’m sure it’s the rack lever or the pin on the second wheel maybe too advanced. This has not been a particularly fun clock to work on:

    Cuckoo strikes once when winding

    It works perfectly except for winding some of the times. The movement had two bushings on a one day Herr. So no wire springs. Personally I want to leave it, as ot doesn’t affect anything as it runs.

    Cuckoo strikes once when winding

    I’ll check it. I’m assuming the tab needs to be bent up toward the top.

    Cuckoo strikes once when winding

    I’ve seen this multiple times. I’ve seen it on all types of movments, regulas, herrs, and Baduf. I currently have a Herr that will cuckoo once it 2x when you wind the strike side. It sometimes will not do this. Clock works flawlessly otherwise. What causes this? Like I said, I’ve seen it a...

    Other Hubert Herr movments

    Is like to buy Hubert Herr movments that you folks have removed form clocks and have put in your trash pile. Complete would be good even if they need overhauls.

    Clock stops randomly after days of running.

    It runs on the wall indefinitely. What will happen is as you have to reset the time, the hands will tighten eventually and stop the clock. If you left it alone without touching the hands it would run for good.

    Clock stops randomly after days of running.

    So the clock ran perfectly for 1.5 cycles or about 10 days. I stopped the clock and turned the minute hand a full 12 hours and they felt pretty good but started to tighten toward the end. So the problem really is that the hands will set tighten over time from manually setting the time, not from...

    Repairing a Quail cuckoo ?

    The backs with no holes are pretty awful to set the strike hammer up. But one trick is to leave the bellows out and use the whistle holes to see the positioning.

    What weight for this cuckoo?

    Thanks!

    What weight for this cuckoo?

    I have a 1 day regula cuckoo that has the set of gears Underneath the movmwnt that drives the music box, a waterwheel and a man and a dog that turn on a big platform: this is the kind that is driven by the orings.
