    I'm looking for Gustav Becker dial like this one. Also the motion works for the hour and minute hands along with the hands.

    Looking for that square iron metric nut that goes on the bottom of a pendulum 21. I think it's threads are 4.5mm x 0.75, but I'm not sure.

    Looking for a movement mount thumbscrew for a Wurth clock. I thought they were all alike, but it turns out these are not interchangeable between different manufacturers.

    Ming,

    Thanks for the offer. I have several of those myself. I'm really hoping to find the exact part. Anything else would have to be modified to work.

    Thanx Shutterbug. I bought a couple of those and the pendulums are REALLY small and don't look right. The other one available from them was bigger but quit working after about a month. Thanx though :)

    I found a full-size Kundo that needs one of the screws on the pendulum that holds the arm in place. I removed one of the other three screws to show what I'm looking for. Are these specialty clock-only type screws or are there other sources for something like this?

    Thanks...Kurt

    The anchor is a solid anchor, Yes?
    Which fork are you talking about? What plate # is the clock?
    And could we get pic of the leveling foot you need?

    Tony, check with Horolovar by email at horolovar@gmail.com[FONT=arial, helvetica, sans-serif] or call at [/FONT][FONT=Arial, Helvetica, adobe-helvetica, Arial Narrow](740) 277-7083 from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm Monday-Friday, it is quite likely they will have the parts you need.[/FONT][FONT=arial, helvetica, sans-serif] For the mainspring barrel you need to check which back plate number is the one for your clock as that will determine the specs needed. The Schatz 53 ratchet is standard for that model.[/FONT]

    Atmos 540 Door Glass Springs

    I am finding multiple failures, either just weakness or actual breakage on the springs supporting the front door on the Atmos 540-style clocks. The manufacturer will not sell me the springs ("we suggest you send the clock to us" - to which I responded that investing about $1,500 for shipping, insurance and service to replace springs worth a couple of dollars was wrong.

    Does anyone have any of these springs available? I have an immediate need for six.

    Currently working on a design idea for an improved spring, but my need is more urgent.

    Niagara torsion clock

    Good afternoon, all!

    Ideally, would like to find a pendulum "bob" for a Niagara torsion clock. This is the version that looks a bit like two "bullets" with no actual adjustment system (adjustment is by lengthening or shortening effective suspension spring length).

    Failing that, I might consider making one myself. I would very much like to have good photos, ideally with an embedded scale, dimensions and weight of the bob. This is for one of the squarish box Niagaras in which the pendulum is completely hidden inside.

    Thanks in advance!

    Re: Niagara torsion clock

    Tim, in addition to the photos that Eric posted, could you post a photo of the adjustment mechanism you have? There were two different versions and although each one had the same basic pendulum design the attachment of the pendulum to the adjustment mechanism was quite different. One uses a hook on the bottom of the adjusting mechanism, the other has two notches in the bottom cap of the adjusting mechanism with a matching cut plate on the pendulum to fit to the notches.

    Re: Niagara torsion clock

    Good evening, Eric and John!

    Eric: The one on the far right LOOKS like what I would need. Absent dimensions, of course, I can't be absolutely certain. I had one of the ones with the two spheres, the adjustable kind, like the one on the far left in your pictures, and it was far too large to fit into the space available. Besides, given that the adjustment mechanism on the suspension is intact, it would be incorrect for my clock.

    That said, however, I can't tell if the way the one on the far right attaches would match my clock.

    John: The adjustment mechanism I have has a very definite hook on which the bob hangs. I currently have a coil of lead fishing weight strip and some other weights hanging off that hook.

    Thanks!

    Best regards!

    Tim

    Hello,
    The company I work has a lot of 3mm stainless nuts. We order certain product and the nut came with it. We do not need them. So our people just recycle them. We also have a lot of wave washer for 3mm screw. These wave washer is not stainless.
    If any one need the 3mm stainless screw nuts or wave washers, please PM me, so I can mail to you.

    Parts needed for a Kern U Sohne

    I am in need of parts for a Kern 400-day clock. The a spring break took out a row of teeth on the barrel.

    The clock is marked:


    (This clock was purchased in German. The first 4 lines are not in Terwilliger’s book plate.)

    Kern u Sohne
    Germany
    No(0) Jewels
    Unadjusted

    K. U. S. MIV
    Germany

    This clock matches plate #1340E in Terwilliger’s Book (1965).


    I am in need of a spring barrel and the upper pendulum lock bracket that screws to the bottom of the back plate. Does anyone have or know where these parts could be obtained?

    Regards,

    Tunderer

    I'm not that familiar with all the variations, but I have something that has a similar looking bridge with 52mm between hole centers but the finials aren't that "fancy". Not to mention that two of the finials are broken off.

    You can buy a replacement on eBay; search for "special suspension block". The seller (not me, I should add)
    sells a variety of replica parts and they are of good quality.

    Konrad Mauch Foot

    Have a Konrad Mauch miniature with "Diana" on the dial. The clock came with 4 feet which are independently adjustable. However, one of the bogus feet was glued on! :( I removed it and cleaned up the threads...now I'm looking for a replacement foot. The foot is 10.9mm tall and 13.1mm at it's widest point.# The threads are M4x0.7. I've checked with Chris Nimon and he came up empty. Below is the clock along with the correct foot. Any ideas? I took 3 nuts from the hardware store and glued them in a stack...it works but looks awful.

    Thanks...Kurt

    Re: Konrad Mauch Foot

    I'd drill it out and insert a piece of brass stock that would be redrilled and tapped.
    Could you drill out the top of the foot enough to JB Weld one of those nuts in it?
    If you do a clean job and touch it up with some brass paint (Provided you couldn't find a brass nut in that size), it should be pretty unnoticeable.

    Re: Konrad Mauch Foot

    Martin -

    You can see the replacement foot that came with the clock. I was really looking for a "real" replacement. I attended a lecture at the National about 3-D printing. This would be a possibility for that kind of "repair". According to the lecture, he prints with something like 70% brass power and 30% plastic filler. Then the item is cleaned up...seems to work great for finials which might be painted. I do know someone locally who has a 3-D printer...hmmm...

    Re: Konrad Mauch Foot

    I decided to get a 3-D print of the foot. Had a friend create the electronic file and then uploaded it to a company out of New York. For the first printing, I got free shipping, so the item cost me less than $5. I chose yellow plastic just to see how it would work. I've drilled and tapped the printed foot. The picture I've taken doesn't show so well. The knurling on the edge is not quite the same, but decent. I haven't decided if I'm just going to paint my plastic part and call it good, or reprint the next time with a brass material...probably would print all four so they would be matching. I'll play a little bit with painting to see how it would look.

    Plate 1395B uses a .0035" spring.
    What's so bad about the one that's on there?

    This one was broken and it's too short. Can't install the pendulum or spring guard! It is running though! So .0035" it is. Thanks so much for the info!

    Kundo Miniature

    I think I might have just thrown $28 out the window on this one. What happens when you buy online even though your gut feeling is telling you "the photos are really bad, beware". Looking for missing Type B (Horolovar 10th pg 179) verge, escape wheel & 3rd wheel for Kundo miniature (plate 1379D). Will check with Horolovar, but thought I would post here too.
