I don't know who the maker is but this platform looks like a newer replacement. Are you sure that the pinion has 7 leaves? In most cases there are 8 leaves, sometimes 6. Before you buy a new platform be sure that the number of leaves is correct.

The clock supply houses sell replacements, and there are people who repair broken ones, although it's expensive.

Bangs,
You must also know which way the pinion turns. They are made to operate either right or left.
Best,
Dick

Hi I was looking for little help I’ve had this clock plugged in for about a year and then the hands on the clock quit moving When I took it apart and check The wiring I noticed the motor image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg would not spin but with a little help it would start spinning So my question is is there a replacement motor or can this one be rebuilt I will prefer to stick with an original motor if possible the clock was in great shape and still in its original box when I purchased it

They can be rebuilt and there is a number of websites out there that can walk you through the different processes. You can also purchase them rebuilt, though some places can be kinda pricey. Basically the oil that was in it has dryed up and/or getting nasty/thick. You will have to get the information that is stamped on it and then just google it. Hope this helps.

Hope I got this in the right place! I'm looking for a Junghans pendulum for a bracket clock. (as shown) Or the specifications on such a bob. I don't have one and not sure what the size is or the weight of it.

I am in need of a balance spring for a Seth Thomas 103A movement. The spring itself is .0025" thick x .011" wide and the split collar has a .039" id.

I'm looking for 2 weights suitable for an 8-day Ogee clock (in the UK - postage from outside the UK is likely to be more than the value of the clock!).

Burkhard Rasch uses Comtoise weights for his 8 day OG clock. They are probably easier to find in the UK.

You're right, Urhalt, they are easier to find - thanks for the suggestion.

As new stock, they are surprisingly expensive, to my mind. If I can't find second-hand ones from a scrap clock, I may end up trying to make my own from scrap cast iron.

Would Cuckoo weights work in a pinch?
I guess they would, if they were heavy enough. Eight pounds seems about the target weight.

I might end up with a six-and-a-half day clock though, because the weight would hit the bottom of the case sooner...but I could live with that until the right weights came along.

Charles Jacques Mathias Bauerle tube movement parts.

I had a member from Florida promise to sell me a parts movement for my project, but he ended up selling it on eBay. I'm still rather ticked about the entire thing. I also know that finding someone with a parts movement or the items I'm looking for is like the proverbial needle in a haystack.

anyway, I guess its worth a try.

this is my movement

xdhX70.jpg

these are the parts I would really like to find:

8xCSuR.jpg

original seat board screw

iiXPvb.jpg

string clamp and thumb screw for hammer pull

x01Sjt.jpg

1 original movement post screw

sIS3Sd.jpg

I would like to replace this lever but it can be bent back into proper shape

os8PlE.jpg

there should be 2 posts in these threaded holes to limit crutch movement.



the reality is that I can make my clock successfully work with the parts that I have. I just would really like it to be as original as possible. if you have a parts movement or a movement that you might be willing to sell me these parts from, I would really appreciate it. please send a private message or quote my text here with a response.

thank you

Brian

This is not a want but rather a give away. Free to anyone that wants it - an incomplete new haven pain-in-the-neck movement. As pictured and missing some wheels, it's yours for the cost of postage. I would prefer to send in a USPS medium sized priority mail box but will send as you wish. Help me out here and take it off my hands - first response gets it !!!!

Omigod. I didn't know that they'd made a chiming version of this horrible thing. I'm still struggling with a strike-only movement just like this one, and it's an incredibly miserable thing to work on. With the shortest pivots ever put on a nominally-working clock, it's almost impossible to assemble.

I am sorely in need of a back door/bezel assembly for this ancient Tiffany French clock. The original was presumably lost sometime during the Franco-Prussian War, possibly melted down for cannon balls. eBay has some, but they're either too large and/or located in Poland.

Had I kept silent about its need for a back and bezel I'd have been okay, but no: I had to open my big yip and discuss the fact that the back was missing, and now the customer wants the back, too. I'm not averse to radically altering some other part that would make a reasonable back for this beast.

Is there any place, in addition to ebay, where one can find donor movement for verge bracket clocks? Looking for non working striking verge with lenticular bob. Just in case dimensions were needed, the dimensions of my movement are: 215 mm height, 55 inner depth between two plates, 181 width of the plate.

If any member has something, pl message me.

Thanks

After having a clock repair person remove the movement and pendulum from my ITR master clock, I no longer have them as he went to jail and is now living in Florida. I need a movement and pendulum for the 5 ft wall mount ITR maser clock. I use to work for Simplex and can install it. This clock had a mercury pendulum so it has the long pendulum spring. I will need the short spring for anything else. The winder was the syncrnous rotor. Any help would be appreciated. I will supply pictures if you need them. Thanks

If you know of an old house that is being or has been torn down, you might be able to scrounge a couple of window weights and cut them down. Easier than making a mold

Sash weights - hadn't thought of that. Thanks for the suggestion - although I managed to buy a donor ogee clock at auction for £5 that also had the gong I needed.

Hi:

I need an escape wheel for a Cortland 8 day desk clock made by Concord Watch Co. It's listed in Bestfit as a Cortebert 445 calibre. I cross-posted in watches as well, so if you have one, please PM me. Thanks, Chris. See Also Khasara Drama Here!

Looking to buy a old, unused, unneeded, damaged mainwheel that someone may have laying around. Maker, size, tooth count not important though larger would be a plus.

Wanting a piece to learn tooth repair and dovetailing on. Unfortunately I have no spare wheels or brass. Will pay for wheel and shipping.

Thanks

I am in need of a spring barrel with the spring and winding arbor for a Gustav Becker "Mignon" westminster movement. This is a small 8 day movement that was used in small mantle clocks around 1932.

Thanks so much!

Circa 1850 English tall case / grandfather clock movement parts needed
I'm looking for a second hand & a calendar wheel for this movement
The arbor for the calendar wheel (indicated by red arrow) is about 2.89mm - wheel would be roughly 56mm in diameter
The arbor for the second hand is about 1.93mm.
The last pic shows the calendar hand for reference, it is about 69mm long.

These guys stock lots of tallcase parts. Calander wheel page here; Date Wheels. This link English longcase date wheel explains how to calculate the tooth count. It's really just double the teeth on the pinion.
If they don't have the wheel you need PM me. I can make you one.

I’m in need of the hands nut for an Ansonia swinger. Does anyone know who makes them or has them available? Neither Timesavers or Merritts sells them. The hand-side of the nut has a recessed area that fits over the shaft slot extension. Also, anyone know the thread? As a work around I could use a washer and a nut but prefer the original type nut if available. Pics attached. Thanks.

They are also curved hands. I don't know if you'll be able to find a pair except perhaps on an auction site.

The hands are going to be tough, since they are actually arms with hands. Check out the auction sites and hope :)

I'm looking for someone who has worked on replacing pins on a jewelers regulator pinwheel gear. The present one has a broken pin and badly worn others. It's beyond my capabilities. I do not have the right tools or knowledge for the repair.

Assume PM means 'private message' but being the newbie I am, where might one find PMs?
Click on that little "person' symbol just between "Donations" and the magnifying glass. This will open your personal space und offer the option to send a PM.
