    Crane Month running clock

    Hi Guys, after a long absence I'm back on the message board. A few weeks ago I picked up a Crane Month running clock at a local auction. In nice overall condition it belonged to a local repair person, I think. It has everything but the pendulum and weights. I know the pendulum, which I...

    Gustav Becker 400 day clock timekeeping

    A few weeks ago at a garage sale I picked up a Gustav Becker 400 day clock with original disc pendulum. After cleaning movement, spring, etc. I installed a suspension spring I had on hand. It worked but was slow, very slow. I ordered the typical .0040 Horolovar spring and installed that one...

    thanks guys. Eric, I think you're right. Is it a 1920-1930 or later?

    Early 400 day clock penulum

    Hi everyone. Just picked up this 400 day clock pendulum but am unsure what it might go to or the age. My guess is that it is early 20th century but that is just a guess. Also the spurs on the upper portions are a little unusual, well to my eye anyway. Any help would be great. Thanks.

    Help with power issue for Harder's Patent 400 day clock

    Hey Guys. The Harder is still running strong, one winding in the beginning of July. I do have a question however. I have had this issue with other early 400 day clocks before where they keep really good time for sometimes several days and then all of a sudden runs fast by a couple of...

    Help with power issue for Harder's Patent 400 day clock

    ok guys, it's been almost 4 months since I wound this clock and the mainspring problem was apparently the issue. For the most part it keeps good time. Sometimes it does run a little fast and I'll adjust and sometimes it runs a little slow and I'll adjust. Not sure if this is a common problem...

    Help with power issue for Harder's Patent 400 day clock

    thanks John. I just ordered a new mainspring to your specs. I have a feeling this will correct the power issue but I was unsure what mainspring size to purchase as some say the 400 day clock guide is correct and some say it is not. I will take everyone's advice, polish plates, gears and pivot...

    Help with power issue for Harder's Patent 400 day clock

    thanks guys for guidance. Yes, the pendulum was taken off for transport to take pics. The pendulum bob does lie very close to the base when connected so I can raise it some as I have to install a new suspension spring anyway, I kept thinning it down to where it was keeping really good time but...

    Help with power issue for Harder's Patent 400 day clock

    A few months ago I acquired this Harder's Patent 400 day clock, something I've always wanted. After disassembly and cleaning the clock it ran for 1 week, keeping excellent time then stopped. This time I disassembled again and removed the mainspring and ordered a new one to the specs of the old...
