    Pre-built clock case

    Hello clockman123, several members of the board have built clock cases for Vienna and wall regulators, myself included. Examples of mine can be seen at www.Lumberjocks.com/horsefly/projects. Are you looking for advise, plans, or what?

    looking for opinions on" Proclocks' clocks.

    Normally I would not respond to a thread such as this but on this one I feel I must. I have dealt with Bob in the past and have been very satisfied with the process. I was in need of a porcelain dial and Bob provided the only solution I could find. The end result was as advertised, the...

    Finally finished my E. Howard #70-24

    tok-tokkie, I apologize for my poor photography, I think the brass reflections and color saturation are misleading. I should have played around with the pics before posting I suppose. All the pinions in the movement are indeed cut steel. The only brass/brass interface is in the motion works...

    E. Howard hands, what to do.......

    Here's the situation....I have a #70-24 that I need to make the correct hands for it. I prefer spade hands with no tail on the minute hand as shown in a Howard catalog. Keep in mind the movement has an integral counterbalance for the longer minute hand. I made the first one from .050...

    Finally finished my E. Howard #70-24

    Some of you may recall I had posted earlier (months ago) re: a movement I picked up several years ago at a NAWCC convention in MO. I was surprised to learn that it was for a 24" dial. Well, it's finally done. This was the most difficult clock case I have built to date. Not because of it's...

    E. Howard glass installation???

    I am ready to install the glass into a #70 case. Can someone tell me how E. Howard originally installed their glass? I can use glue blocks, glazing, or whatever. I will not use any type of nail since I don't want to break the glass which was recently reverse painted.

    case finishing question....

    I am nearing completion of a reproduction clock case for a Howard #70 that was originally made for a 24" dial and I know it was made in 1910. I am using cherry and thinking ahead to the finish. I can put a finish on it (which I have done before) that will make it look aged (darker) or, I can...

    Diagnostic fun!!

    Well here 'tis.... the flat spring that pushes the rack tail against the snail was bent out and not contacting the rack at all. Just the weight/balance of the rack would drop it back 2-3 teeth but not enough momentum to go further. I bent the spring back slightly so it made solid contact with...
