    3 questions -- (1) Looking for a pendulum for the pendulum assembly of a Seth Thomas 113 movement.

    (2) I am looking to find where this picture comes from and find the 'key' to the diagram. I have my answers but I wanted to use this in a class I am hoping to start and didn't want any conflicts out there that the students may find one day. I originally thought it was from the book Practical Clock Repairing by Donald DeCarle but I looked and don't see it in there....

    (3) I found that most books (including the one listed above) are very dated in their process and assume the reader knows a bit more about clocks than the average beginner.... Any suggestions on a book for real beginners?

    Clock-5.JPG Good evening, all!

    A friend of my sister has a Kieninger No. 36 grandfather clock with a severely damaged dial. Would like to find a replacement dial, new or used. This clock was purchased in Germany in 1999. Specifically, all the Roman numerals except XII, V and VII have fallen off and are nowhere to be found.

    One clock shop has already tried to find a dial with no luck.

    Anyone have any ideas?

    Thanks!

    Best regards!

    It doesn't look too bad other than the missing numerals. I think they could be replaced with something really close to original?

    Good afternoon, all!

    Still working on the Kieninger grandfather clock dial. Kieninger says it isn't their dial (in spite of the fact that their name is on the front), and that in any case, I can't buy from Kieninger (Haven't contacted Howard Miller yet.)

    Hefele, the dealer in Germany, has not responded to inquiry, even though Kieninger says they supplied the dial.

    We are trying to determine if the old numerals that appeared to fall off might still be around, and simply try to re-affix them.

    Stand by.

    Best regards!

    I hope this thread finds you all well!
    I'm in need of a escape wheel for a 17th century movement, see attached pictures. The escape wheel pinion is severely worn, as you can see from the picture. I've blended wear marks as much as I dare, and the clock will run. But it will stop suddenly, and if you nudge the minute hand while the pendulum is still moving, the clock will continue to beat. I think my best bet will be to find a 7 teeth pinion and graft it on to the escape wheel. I'm open to other ideas as well.
    The following are the dimensions of the escape wheel: shaft length 76 mm x 2.77 mm with a pinion of 5.87 mm / 7 teeth. The escape wheel is 39.53 mm / 30 teeth. Thanks petro

    If it were me, I would just a get a new pinion cut. It's not a big job if you have the right equipment and there are people who specialise in doing it. I doubt your chances of finding the correct second-hand replacement quickly.
    The person who cuts a new one for you wold be able to attach it to the escape wheel also.

    I do not live in US so it is hard for me to advise (I know several such people in Europe, but that's no help to you!)

    There are advertisements for such services in the MART supplement issued with the NAWCC Bulletin. Or you could ask your local NAWCC chapter for recommendations.

    And Dave La Bounty, who often posts on this site may be able to help. You could send him a message.

    I've been in contact with Dave Bounty, and he's been a tremendous help with guiding me with salvaging the old escape wheel pinion by blended out the wear marks.
    To have a new pinion cut and fitted on the old escape wheel, you're looking at $600 to $800, which will ready make my customer's day. I appreciate all your feedback, thanks! God bless! petro

    Very glad you got the help you needed - I agree $600-800 probably wouldn't have pleased your customer!

    By the way, you said in your first post that this was a 17th century clock, which would make it from the 1600s. It certainly isn't 17th century.
    I think you meant to write 18th century (from 1700s) which is just about possible, if late 1700s. Myself, I suspect it is from very late 1700s/early 1800s (19th century) but I may be wrong.

    Nice clock anyway, and I'm very glad Dave La Bounty could help you solve the problem. He has helped very many people.

    Things like this are up to the customer to decide. Tell him what the issue is, and the cost to fix it. He'll take it from there.

    Hi everyone,

    This is my first posting, so I hope it starts a new wanted post rather than a reply. Let me introduce myself. I am a '77 graduate of Bowman Technical School in Clockmaking and repairing.

    I need of a Schatz W3 platform escapement with a good balance. Will buy a complete movement if that's what it will take. The platform is nickle plated on this movement and is mounted horizontally on the back-plate.

    Not sure I want to buy a new platform escapement from TimeSavers unless someone can tell me exactly what I need. Since many are non-returnable I do not want to take any chances. The W3 movement has an 8 leaf pinion.

    The W3 clock now on auction is a different movement. YouTube shows the correct movement I have in video, Schatz Triple Chime Mantle Top Clock Vintage Germany Westminster Shelf

    All help appreciated.

    Thanks, Warren

    Looking for a tall case flat wire gong complere with mounting hardware. The type of gong is similar to the trye used on Waltham tall case clocks. The gong is mounted on a threaded block, which is mounted on a 12 to 15 inch rod with a set of clamping collars and a nut that secures the rod at various heights. This rod fits into a cast iron block which is bolted to the backboard and has a slot for the rod. If you happen to have one or know of one please send a PM.

    Good evening. As running on the wall, this absolutely delightful Atkins Fusee 30 day clock --- the ONE missing thing is the minute hand. The people that had this in a drawer had probably put it there 100 years ago -- they kept every splinter that had ever been lost, every screw, every pin. There was a small chip of wood out of the pendulum stick where the top had broken, and after I filled it, I flipped the clock upside down more agressively, and the tiny chip fell out -- I took my filler our and replaced it with the original chip! Everything about it is completely original. Somehow, the hand got lost. If there's anyone out there with one, I'd love to hear of it to complete this piece for my own collection. Seems like it must have been about 5.25" or so. Thanks!

    Any possibility the hand is hung up in the movement some place? I know, dumb question but I have had one stuck someplace up in the case that I finally find... here is one on my clock, but I suspect you already know what it looks like too....but just in case. I did check the box of orphan hands, no luck here.

    Jim -- thanks for the thoughts -- I've been through that case really carefully ---- it's definitely not there. The hour hand wasn't there either come to think of it, but I was able to locate one of those in the parts box! I re-gutted the movement so been pretty well through it. Thanks for looking in your orphan hands!

    Hello folks,

    I just purchased a Seth Thomas 8 Bell Sonora, model 214.

    It's been restored and looks/works great. It won't arrive until later this week.

    Seth Thomas offered an 'accessory kit' which allowed the bell chimes to alternate between Westminster and Whittington chimes each hour. The parts were meant to be installed by the jeweler.

    Unfortunately, this clock wasn't retrofitted with it.

    Does anyone have the parts, or know of a source for them? Maybe from an unserviceable unit.

    Thanks,
    Mort

    I've never seen one like that. I assume it's rare enough that parts will be tough to find. You might keep you eye on the auction sites to see if a donor comes up.

    Greeting fellow time keepers!! As a newbie and 1st time posting, I am humbled by the multitude of watch and clock care givers from around the world. I am an avid Hobbyist, self taught and a true believer in keeping a watch or clock as original as possible. That being said, I am looking for a replacement barrel with mainspring for a L. Marti et Ci* mantel clock. Attached are a few photos of the clock. I have not disassemble it as to maintaining the integrity of the works but know for sure the that mainspring is broken and the barrel has chipped teeth. Any assistance in finding these parts is greatly appreciated.

    Welcome to the board.

    The replacement mainspring can easily be bought from the usual supply houses (e.g. Timersavers). As for the barrel, you can have it repaired by anyone who cuts wheels etc. I am having the a barrel repaired in this way just now, which had several teeth ripped, but since I am not in USA, it would not help to give you the name of the person who is doing it for me. But I know there are several people here on this board who do such repairs - I believe Dave La Bounty may be able to do this for you and he is always very helpful.

    In order to order the correct mainspring you will need to take the movement apart in to access and measure the existing spring.

    The pendulum appears to be from a ZanDaam clock. Use that term in your search bar and you'll no doubt find pic's of what you need.
