I have a bulova grandfathers clock. Unfortunately I've lost the nut that holds the hands on. I've tried to locate the serial number on the movement but it is too faded to read. I've enclosed a few pictures that might help you to figure out the model. It would really be helpful to have this fixed. Thank you.

That's great, where do I find them?
You can get an assortment of hand nuts cheaply from the usual clock materials suppliers, you will find one to fit. There is nothing special about these nuts.

Most hand nuts are made of brass. A photo of the actual movement will narrow the field. Willie X

Any German assortment will have nuts for your clock (Hermle).

A 49 year old Hermle will require a lot of work to put it back in 'good running order'.

It actually runs quite well. But if you mean striking, it does have issues.
