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!)JTD, do you know someone who does that type of work? petro
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.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.
That diagram originated from Dick Swan, copyright 1978. I have the key for it.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?

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.
