    Ansonia Open Escapement

    Hi Tex clock, I suppose it depends on how desperate you are. It seems really hokey, but recently I ok'd an open escapement Ansonia (Oriel model) of mine to have Thread-lock put there. I know it's awful in a way, but it is reversible as you can get it off when/if you want to. You have to choose...

    Hamburg American Clocks

    Well, here are three sort of funny photos of the top of the clock. There does seem to be sort of a squarish indentation or set of marks in the middle of the top.. when I blow up the photos.. But aside from that one knot hole, there are not holes from nails or screws there. Maybe the crest was...

    Hamburg American Clocks

    Funny! But the extra information that the clock predates the association with Junghans is great to know. Now I have lots more I can add to the document I wrote up about this clock, what I'd done to it, and what was known about it. Thank you very much!

    Well thank you for the information and picture! That I will have to dig mine out and take a look at the top of it for signs of a removed crest. Well thank you for the information and picture!

    Hamburg American Clocks

    And here's one more! This clock runs very well, seemed pretty unmolested when I got it, though the "catch" part of the latch on the door is broken. It came with a key, shown in one picture, that I have tried to identify as possibly original type and shape, but no opinions as yet. It has a...

    Upside down Telechron M1 rotor. How bad is this?

    It's funny Rodalco, but that idea crossed my mind, about the worn interior parts. I will see what happens over time and if it gets noisy I'll flip it back. This clock- so far- is quiet with the rotor on in both orientations.. Thanks for the input, Tim

    Upside down Telechron M1 rotor. How bad is this?

    Thank you for your good advice, I had not thought about the actual wear, which of course won't be repaired by new oil, and for the reminder that these things can be rebuilt! There are still people out there who do it right, so why fool around with it when someone who knows how to do it correctly...

    Upside down Telechron M1 rotor. How bad is this?

    What do you think about the folks on youtube who think drilling the top of the case, rinsing out with a solvent, then adding new oil, then sealing the hole with epoxy is a good Idea? (This particular clock runs very quietly, I would't do anything to it.)

    Upside down Telechron M1 rotor. How bad is this?

    Hi, I bought a cool electric that works perfectly. I opened up the case to see if the thing could be oiled or dusted out and found the rotor is in upside down, the side that's up having no writing but the side that's down saying "top" on it. I am wondering if it needs to be further taken apart...

    Battery survey.

    In my experience Duracells leak, and Energizers do not.

    I won’t buy through Ebay’s “Global Shipping Program”

    Funny, I received an email just yesterday from an English ebay seller who, in reply to a query of mine last week about his shipping costs, said he'd just "not paid attention" to the choice he could make about how his stuff was shipped, so was using GSP, and had been wondering why he'd "had no...

    Identifying Ansonia marble/slate mantle clock

    Identifying Ansonia marble/slate mantle clock

    OH! Got it! So is a "visible escapement dial" just one of those two-part stepped dials? Those "High/low" looking dials? (That could be cut here and there to be adapted to an open escapement type movement?)

    I won’t buy through Ebay’s “Global Shipping Program”

    I have emailed a number of sellers who had switched to the global shipping program and were now charging a great deal more to ship from England, asking them why their shipping was now so high. One just flatly told me he/she just didn't have the time or energy to go through the Royal Post and...

    French Slate Project

    Snorty, You can order from Timesavers online but they also still have a nice fat paper catalogue which they'll mail you with your first order, if you request one, and which makes very good reading.

    Forestville in near original condition

    Hello, If I'm not mistaken the movement in that clock is one of those with the beautiful "hourglass" shaped front plates. (The rear plates being just rectangular.) And I am jealous about the wonderful condition of that dial. The printing of the name is much better than any I have seen...

    Ingraham Electric SSC2 vs M9505

    Thank you Mike! Good to know some more about the clock. Interesting about the coil number vs motor number. They did make this case for a while, some with a "Sentinel" model label on the dial, some with the little red power window in the dial and some without, and I think there were switch-outs...
