    EUREKA! What a find

    I cannot believe there is no one with any info on this clock, also only one for sale on the internet. I have also been battling to get hold of Alan Shenton's book on The Eureka Clock but no luck.

    Sharon's Clock

    Hi Jim, what a story. And love the way you have put it to writing. As for the restoration, like Sharon said, It couldn't have gone to a better person. Well done to you and everybody involved bringing this beautiful old Girl back to life.

    Good day to you all, I have been in the fortunate position to help an elderly gentleman whom is moving to an old age home help pack up his workshop after 56 years. I have been blessed with some really nice old tools and some very interesting clocks and lots of odd bits. Part of the last lot was...

    GLENFIELD & KENNEDY - KILMARNOCK

    Would have loved to have it in original but this is all i got, the extra wheel you see in the inside is an extra pulley as the weight has a double pulley system. The loose scerw at the back is for a pendulum lock which I also have.

    GLENFIELD & KENNEDY - KILMARNOCK

    Hi Chris, the dial is 6" and the movement is about 10" high. These movements we used in tidal gauges, picture included. The clock-maker where i got it just had it on his test stand for years.

    GLENFIELD & KENNEDY - KILMARNOCK

    Hi Jimmy, i would want to put it in wood, maybe a nice wooded base with a glass hood. Would want to miss any of that brass.

    GLENFIELD & KENNEDY - KILMARNOCK

    Good morning from a rainy Cape Town - South Africa. Got this clock yesterday from a clock maker who is closing down after 56 years. All three pinions needs to be replace as they are badly worn but it keeps time very accurately. It was set up in his shop and was running for years and he never had...

    Very large Tavern Style Clock

    Thanks for the info Jonathan, that's exactly why I got it. I have seen what they go for and I would never have been able to buy one from overseas. I probably recon this would be one of only a handfull in South Africa if not the only one. Love the style of the case and the size of it. Quite big...

    A.W & Co Regulator clock

    Thanks JTD, Cant wait to start with it. The veneer on the case is still in excellent condition and it is a beautiful colour. The movement is spot on correct at this stage bit I will be even better once I gave it a good clean and some nice new fresh oil. Seems like there is not a lot around, or...
