    Regulating time with Seth Thomas

    There are two Seth Thomas pendulum's that Timesavers sells. One has a small hole in the middle of it and that is the one I am using with this clock. The weight of this is 4 oz and part number is 10290. The other is 3.6 oz. part number 10219. Would the difference of .4oz make that much difference...

    Regulating time with Seth Thomas

    Dial not changed and there is no place on this movement to regulate it. Must have been with an adjustable pendulum to rate it. No sense of taking any pictures because it doesn't show anything for rating. Just wanted to know if Seth Thomas made a movement like this at some time. Thanks for the...

    Regulating time with Seth Thomas

    Me neither! Now I have another Seth Thomas Mantle and it is the same size and design as the Steeple movement, same gears, everything BUT it does have a dial thru at the top where a key can be inserted to rate it. Same movement except for that!

    Regulating time with Seth Thomas

    Hello Richard, cannot regulate through the dial like "normal" clocks. To try and experiment with different suspension springs is an exercise in futility.

    Regulating time with Seth Thomas

    Have a Seth Thomas Steeple Clock and the movement is a Time&Strike 8 day pendulum. Problem is it's running 20 minutes per day fast and there is no way to regulate the time. Everything is original including the pendulum which has no rate nut on the bottom of the bob. Don' t know what could have...

    Jauch 77 Weights

    Sure did help Tick Doc. I need to purchase a weight scale but it did feel like all three weights were the same and that is why I posted this question. Weird that all 3 trains are the same. Thanks.

    What is BPH for this Urgos

    HNY Shutterbug. Been running it for 24 hours and was about 12 minutes slow so started to make adjustments. Don't think the pendulum is original. Don't want to do the trial and error thing for a week so thanks for the number and will take a reading tomorrow morning. tick

    What is BPH for this Urgos

    Healthy New Year to All! Have an Urgos 5X5 square grandmother movement chain driven T,S,C and don't know what the BPH is. The markings on the bottom rear are minimal. It is stamped PL85CM with the number 1130. That is all. Anyone know what the BPH is? thanks tick

    Repivoting and Tool Steel

    Tool Steel does matter! Case in point. Restored a Waterbury 8 day Time and Strike started to wind the Mains when the time side winding arbor started to twist. By the time I finished winding the arbor looked like a spiraled candy cane! I called him and he told me his friend made the mains arbor...

    Repivoting and Tool Steel

    It matters! If it is 0161 which is a soft steel like Hermle's nickel chromium plated steel. If it is a soft steel than it needs to be replaced with a tool steel like 01 which is a very good tool steel for pivots. That is the point of my question. So the question is not impertinent but of the...

    Repivoting and Tool Steel

    And if this was a repivot is there a way to tell what type of steel it is? O1 or 0161? thanks -> posts merged by system <- Tinker, if the chromium plating has worn off exposing the steel will the rust test work and what will that accomplish?

    Repivoting and Tool Steel

    Is there a way to visibly tell if a pivot is a German nickel chromium plated steel vs a scored tool steel pivot other than seeing the nickel chromium peeling off? tick

    Funny you said that because there was wear on that shaft to the point I had to put a sleeve pivot on it.

    Clockmakers Hall of Shame

    Here is a first for me but you may have seen this before. The local "clock repairman" whom everyone loves and thinks he is a nice man and who really knows how to repair clocks has such a following in town has been doing this for 30 years in his spare time. He was a full time mail deliveryman...
