    I have a wooden clock case on the base of which a decorative groove design was originally carved into the wood, primarily straight lines and some curved lines. Much of it has worn away and the grooves need to be "revived." Can anyone recommend a tool that can be used for this type of work...

    Gilbert and Sessions Clock Cases

    I have working movements for several Gilbert and Sessions clocks. However, none of them have cases. I have looked on e-bay for cases, but those that I have seen are in poor condition. Does anyone know of any sources that I could contact that might have cases - either new or used - for these...

    Gilbert Clock Strike Hammers

    Thank you, but I've never done this. How do I reposition the disc? From the outside back of the movement I see only the disc with pins that lift the hammers, but nothing that I can adjust to reposition the disc. Thank you! Paul

    Gilbert Clock Strike Hammers

    I have acquired a Gilbert clock (pic. below) that has a problem with the hammer striking sequence. At the hour strike, the inside hammer - closest to the movement - is supposed to strike first, followed by the outside hammer. On this clock, the order is reversed, with the outside hammer striking...

    Gilbert Clock Pendulum Bob

    Unfortunately I have a camera problem to send pictures. However, the clock is Gilbert tambour mantle clock, dual strike. On the back, "26" is impressed; on the front, what looks like a faded "247." Hope this is sufficient. Thanks! Paul

    I have acquired an 8 day Gilbert mantel clock with "26" stamped on the back. I need a pendulum bob and would like to know what weight to order. I have seen 2.6 oz. and 4 oz. bobs advertised, but am not sure which is correct. Any advice would be appreciated. Thank you! Paul

    Junghans Clock Assembly

    I have acquired an old German Junghans clock, stamped "A06" on the back, that needs clearing, etc. I am not that familiar with this clock and want to understand how it works before I disassemble and try to reassemble it, especially how to correctly position the wheels with the pins on the front...

    Sessions Nuts and screws

    I am repairing an old Sessions clock that needs the nuts that hold the plate to the posts, and also the small screw that attaches the suspension bracket (or whatever it is called) to the back plate. I tried measuring from another clock, but the nuts are worn and the size of each varies. Does...
