    Re: PAM Clock repair

    I need several Pam square clock faces. I use to purchase from S LaRose who has since closed down - does anyone have a source for these convex glasses?
    I also need an 18" glass for a thermometer - any ideas where I can purchase at a reasonable price?

    Re: Need parts or whole ingraham square mvt (shop regulator)

    I used to know a guy that made replica pieces out of plastic plaster. And then stained them. He would heat the plastic with a hair dryer over the piece he wanted to produce. When it would cool, he would lift the plastic and it would create a mold. The plastic was almost like a heat shrink plastic. That is an option. Or search the web for an alternative solution. The guy I knew did this when I was 16 years old when I first started being around clocks. He has since passed and his knowledge too. I learned allot from this guy.

    Schatz Royal Mariner: Need Gathering Pallet

    Looking for a gathering pallet for a Schatz Royal Mariner. Would also be happy to get a rough tracing
    so I can make one. A friend purchased the clock and now we find the gathering pallet was replaced with
    one that is incorrect.

    Many thanks,


    Gene Volk

    Re: Hair springs

    Have a Jauch movement labeled 61 cm P.L. from a Gazo clock. I need the 2nd wheel in the time train. This is my first post. Hope I am doing this correctly. It is also the first time I took apart a clock and of course caused the stripped wheel because I didn't let down the mainspring before I opened the clock up. Help. Thanks.

    Total arbor length 34.3mm
    Pivot diameter 0.59mm
    Pinion diameter 2.35mm
    escapement wheel diameter 19.8mm
    teeth x43

    Thanks for looking

    Re: Hair springs

    I need a suspension spring for the below pictured movement. The movement is stamped Kriegs (mod.) #43037.

    It is a courtesy repair for an officer stationed at the United States Army Command and General Staff College Fort Leavenworth KS 66027. The clock was bought by the service members spouse at a flea market in Germany and the packing agent in California broke it during their last move. I am trying to help the service member avoid a long claims process filled with red tape.

    Thank you in advance, my cell number is 816-550-9883 or email address of info@kansascitycrates.com.

    Re: Hair springs

    Hi, John, welcome to the message board. If you go to Timesavers website, their suspension springs have their dimensions posted so you can find one close to yours for replacement.
    www.timesavers.com
    A small difference can be compensated for by adjusting the regulator.

    Re: Clock Parts Wanted

    Hello all,

    I am in need of a Hermle, #54 or #55 barrel and cap (53.5mm tooth plate OD). The barrel teeth need not be good as I need only the tube and cap. That tube is almost a dead match for a damaged one in a Junghans Vienna I have in for repair. The barrel tube from the Junghans has a half dozen stress cracks and is not practically repairable.

    I know these Hermle barrels are available new from the material suppliers, but I am reluctant to pay $16.00+/-, only to cut it apart.

    Please send me a PM if you have one or email fourburros@AOL.com

    Best Regards,

    Dick

    I have found an image from a closed auction that shows exactly what I need. Judging from the picture the eagle's wingspan would be in the range of 3 1/2" to 3 5/8". The original is a solid brass piece. Any help you could lend in locatiing one would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks in advance

    Bronze clock bun foot

    I am missing a foot from a clock that I have owned for a long time. The clock is a "Rex" and is made of bronze, weighing 15 1/2 lbs (different from the wooden Rex). The missing foot measures .738" wide, .372 tall with a .164 center hole. Is appears to be machined from a solid piece of bronze. Of course, I would love to have an original foot, but wonder if there is a place to purchase a set of 4 feet that would not be offensive on the clock? Pictured is the foot I need. The picture of the foot by itself is of the foot off of the clock, on a black table top. The feet are screwed on.
    I posted this in the general section and was advised that I should "turn" a new foot. As I replied there, I have no lathe and no later skills if I did have a lathe. Any ideas/help would be appreciated.​

    You can find serveral feet at Timesavers.com type in feet or look on page 19 and see if they will work.

    Page 19 I think.

    Re: BRASS EAGLE FINIAL !

    136884.jpg Looking to buy this eagle! This particular one is from a Seth Thomas No. 1 Banjo. However , I know they placed these on many of their clocks.
    The one I will buy must be solid brass , as original. As measured from the photos the eagle is approx. 3 5/8" wide and almost as tall. All of the replacements I have seen are way undersized for this clock.
    Someone out there is bound to have one !

    I'm looking for a Chrome plated hollow bob for my longcase. The bob is approximately 6 1/2" in diameter & weighs 300 gms. It takes a 1" rod.

    I wondered if anyone out there may have a suitable replacement?

    a wing tab winder for my newly aquired banjo clock..Never have any luck in the parts wanted section..As close as I can figure the threads are #10-20 tpi left hand. I have found a lot of them but all I see are female. I need one with a male stud..

    I just know one of y'all can lead me to it..

    Also which way does the hand set knob come off.. Left or right..before I tear it up...Patience is my forte.

    Moe, without knowing who made it, might be hard to find one. Even then, might be difficult. I've never run into one. You may have to fire up the old lathe and make one. Most hand set knobs are just a friction fit on a square arbor, and pull off.

    I don't think that would be a challenge for you to make, Moe. Any particular reason you're looking? Originality is my guess :) Again, I'm guessing, but finding a left hand threaded die would be easier than finding the part, I think :)

    Are you sure it's threaded? With a wind arbor, backing the wind key up against the ratchet click is needed to unwind it. There is nothing similar on the time setting knob to allow unwinding. Any I've seen just pull off.

    Re: Clock Parts Wanted

    I 'm not sure Harold..I have limited knowledge of this type movement..The knob is solid or I would agree that it may pull off. Think I'll put some penetrating oil on it and see if it will come off left hand..thanks for the help..
