I recently acquired 20+ Antique Vienna Regulators. Most are missing the toppers and other case parts. Does anyone know of a source for these parts? Original or repro. Either will work. The cases are incomplete without them.
Thank you, Danny

Merritts has some pieces on their clearance page. They also sell tops and bottom pieces.
Thanks, Tom. I was looking at them last night. I need to search for clocks that are similar to the one I'm working on and try to match them as closely as possible. I'm sure that is going to be a great source for me while yet very expensive.
Thanks again, Danny
I need a regulator pendulum with a rating nut on longer than 6.5" the hanger needs to be this style.

Have you checked Timesavers? They sell several styles. Search on Vienna top to see what's available. They are unfinished, so require sanding and finishing.

Perhaps others will chime in who have used these toppers, as I have no experience with them.

PatH, Thank you for the info. I've looked far and wide for the pendulum because it is integral. The toppers and finials can be of like-kind and make the clock look better so I'll get the best match and do what I can.
If anyone has a pendulum laying around I'd be interested. (Yeah, and gold, diamonds, or any other treasures you would never part with.)
