    Sadly, the coil wire to the inside of the coil pulled out when I was preparing to re-insulate it.

    Seth Thomas kitchen clock built in October 1948 with a General Time motor.

    Probably a good thing for safety, since it was that unstable after 52 years.

    Anyone know the best way to get a like-new coil for this?

    I would rather not go "quartz" because I like the second hand and am not sure a quartz movement would have it.

    Here are some pictures:

    You could try ebay for a working parts movement.

    Kevin,

    The thing about Ebay is that it could be as unstable as this one was.

    I thought I heard about a person who winds coils to spec. I will google it, but I am thinking maybe someone on here is familiar with him and would give a recommendation.

    John,
    Thank you. Someone else was offering me a new never used one and I saw that one before Dave made his offer. But I will certainly look to Dave for parts in the future if I need them.
