• We are aware of the performance issues with the forum. These are due to problems with Comcast's shared lines in the Columbia, PA area. On December 15, we signed a contract to bring a dedicated fiber line to the forum servers. It should take somewhere between 30 and 90 days to install. Thank you for your patience.

    Who made this?

    Does anyone recognize this battery-operated movement? It's from an early 1900's wall clock, and used to run off of two dry cells. There is no stamp on the movement and no label in the clock. Help! Thanks, Todd

    I'm looking for a glass vial for a mercury pendulum. The original was 165 mm tall and 25 mm wide, flat sided octagon. I need a matching set most likely. Anybody got any ideas?

    a question concerning Jefferson Golden Hour

    I've done a lot of these Jeffersons, and the counterweight gearing to the hour hand is never an issue. Clean it up a bit if necessary, and don't oil it. Don't put oil on any part of the hands assembly, for that matter. Pay attention to assembling the hands and washers in the correct order...

    E Howard Clock Co electric art deco clock

    Bought this clock on eBay for a song. E Howard Clock Co. Waltham MA on metal label on bottom. Great art deco look, 17" wide in a stepped walnut case, metal dial. Freed up the gears and got it running, it is a spin-start; I'm guessing 1920's, the company was in business from 1903 to 1934. I...

    Anyone recognize this clock?

    Steve, Thanks very much for that info on the movement. You are right, it is an 8-day movement. I hung the 30-hr weights that came with it and it did not run for long. When I put 8-day weights on it ran overnight, and they didn't move much. I am inclined to agree with RM's assessment of the...

    Anyone recognize this clock?

    I picked this up at an auction a while back. It has a 30-hour, weight-driven brass movement that is unsigned; there is no label on the case, although it appears that there was one inside at one time. It is a very nice walnut case, 29.75 inches tall, with burl walnut side pieces and a carved...

    Geneva Clock Co. location?

    I picked up an OG with a New Haven spring-driven movement and a New Haven style reverse painted glass, but the label is "Favorite" by The Geneva Clock Company. I can't find any info on this seller, and the label doesn't give any information as to location. Anybody know? I note that there is...

    Chain for wagon spring movement

    I found two old threads asking the same question, and one states that the TimeSavers fusee chain is too small for this application. That is my fear. Moreover, you can only buy the chain in 5-ft sections, at $82. I only need 5 inches...

    Hi, I have a wagon spring movement where one of the chains has broken. TimeSavers has fusee chain, but I don't know if this chain will work. Anyone have any advice? Thanks
