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.

Hello, I am looking for the bottom most ornament, the one below the dial, for a ew Haven "Warwick" model, ca. 1914 cast iron mantle clock. The rest of the clock can be junk, just need this ornament and perhaps the right (facing the clock) leg set. This is the clock pictured below, the right half of the bottom ornament is missing.

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,

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.

Was it so bad that the wheel can't be repaired??

The big gear that connects to the mainspring spins on the shaft. Looks like all the teeth have been stripped away. I think its a goner.

The mold sounds like a good idea. I take it you don't recall the type of material that was used? Thanks.

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.

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.

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.​

The material you need is not cheep. But if you buy the bronze I can make these for you. We both live in Az. Give me a call. Or we can make them out of brass.

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 !

Need dial for C & N Jerome

I am still looking for a dial for a C & N Jerome clock with an "A" frame movement with rolling pinions. The original dial was 11" X 11" with Roman numerals. The center to center distance between winding arbors is 3 and 13/16" and 1 and 7/8" from hour shaft to winding arbor.
Thanks,

6 1/2" Chrome Plated Bob

Hi everyone

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?

I'm based in the UK.

Thanks!

Need

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.

Re: Need

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.

Re: Need

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 :)

Re: Clock Parts Wanted

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.

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..

I could see that this was out of place before I bought it but, was hoping it was just "out of Place." Of Course it wasn't. The pinion to the front plate is broken, and I'm not equipped to repinion. 153914.jpg 153915.jpg 153916.jpg 153917.jpg
