I have a miniature (2 1/2 X 3 ) French carriage clock with a missing teeth on the escape wheel. Where can I find either a replacement wheel or a replacement platform? The platform measures 2.3cm x 3.4cm.

Years ago a friend gave me a rather valuable clock by E.F. Caldwell with a small Lemania movement and it had missing teeth in the escape wheel. It was too old to get a replacement, of course, but I found a shop in British Columbia who made a complete replacement using the broken wheel as a sample. It worked perfectly when I put it in the clock, after some minor adjustment to the banking pins. It was about $300 back then. Depending on your clock it might be better to replace the platform entirely.

These days it would be cheaper to buy a running miniature carriage clock than to buy a new escapement...

Does anyone know where I can get a paper or mylar clock dial as in the photo? It would need to be 4 1/2" diameter with a 2 1/2" cutout (Ingraham) 20190428_211216.jpg . Most replacement dials I have seen of that diameter are just plain dials. I'm hoping to find a "fancy" dial.
Thank you for your time and your help.

Thank you, Dan, for your reply!
I checked out the dial faces in the link but none have a colorful design as in the above photo. The design doesn't have to be flowers. Even something such as colorful vines or some colorful decoration on the inside of the dial is fine. Again, thank you for your responce!

You could photograph or scan your dial and touch up the image with a photo editing program. Then print to paper.

Thank you, Shutterbug, for your reply. Yes, at on time I would have done as you suggested and created my own dial. At this stage of the game though I don't have the time or resources to do that. If I can't find a decorative or "fancy" dial then I settle for a plain white/ivory dial. Again, thank you for your reply!

Could you be better detailed in the dimensions. Anniversary clocks use that dial style a lot, but most are larger than 2.5 inches across the face of the enamel.
Maybe one of the midget clocks would be close. I think most are just over 3 inches, though.

Thank you for the reply! The outside diameter of the dial is 4 1/2". The inside cutout is 2 1/2" The actual dial material measures about 1 inch across from ID to OD. This is a typical Ingraham mantle clock.

Hello, I am in need of some help locating a set of replacement spade steel hands for a Junghans carriage clock (one with a music box). Shaft on the minute hand is about 1.6mm, dial is about 64mm in diameter.

Thanks!

Take a look at Timesavers.com. They have a multitude of different clock hands.

Thanks. I tried looking at Timesavers. I find that sometimes the items lack a bit of detail to truly determine if the part is what I am looking for. I am trying to cheat and see if anyone has replace them in the past, then let me know where and what part number. :)

I am looking for a clock key type door lock or photo of one for my Geo B Owen No.3 Pinwheel Standing Regulator. The hole in the side of the case measures 13/16 high by 3/4 inch. It would be a cam type lock. Nothing in my catalogs show anything that small. I know it is a long shot, but thought I would ask anyway.

I need one of these. It's the winder for a Seth Thomas 124 electric.
I'm also posting this in Electric Horology.

Newish FHS (Hermle) 261-080 'scape wheel required.
From a decently deceased friend - it has a broken pivot.
If I cannot find one, I'll have to start pivoting!

Hello All,

I think I am posting this correctly. Please help me out if I didn't?

I am looking for a few items.

First one is an Urgos UW06066A movement. I need a used replacement movement for one that self destructed when a student took the plates apart without letting the power down. It's basically garbage now.

Second item I am looking for is a pendulum for a Hubert Herr quail cuckoo clock. I have attached a picture of the case for style and stain color. I don't know how to resize, or do anything to modify a picture to fit. So forgive me if it's not the correct size.

Third item(s) would be a used pair of 5" cuckoo bellows, and a quail bellow for the same cuckoo clock.

If anyone could possibly help me out with these items, or point me in the right direction for the mentioned above items, as well as prices, I would be extremely grateful! Thank you for reading, and have a great day.

Hello Everyone,
I am in dire need of a Fork for a platform balance in a Chelsea 12E deck clock movement. One of the pivots on mine is nearly worn through, and 0.006" repivoting is beyond my abilities.
I would be glad to buy a whole platform if you have an old one, even if the balance staff is bad. Mostly looking for the fork.
I would appreciate any help and you can contact me via the P.M. system
Thanks so much!
Mark

Good evening. Got this fantastic period tallcase -- but I believe the movement is wrong -- or perhaps the dial --- the dial is way too huge for the surround -- it is a moon dial face --- even the time track diameter is hidden behind the mask. I'm hoping someone out there has either a moon dial, or an entire American works. It surely would bring this beauty back to life. Thanks for the help -- PM me if you have something. Best wishes.

Did you ever get the part you needed. I have made several of these. Patrick

I'm looking for the small wooden block ornament (1 of 2 - I have one) on a Seth Thomas #2 Clock in oak. Does anyone have one of these or know if a replacement is available. I can reproduce it myself but thought I'd try here first. Thanks much!

I am looking for a Seth Thomas model # 125 lever movement. One that came with a ST banjo is beyond help. Experience with lever movement repair is limited, so prefer one that runs and will keep good time once adjusted. L. McCall

A family friend (not a customer) brought in this novelty cuckoo style clock for repair. Unfortunately, someone had taken this apart and removed the hour gear. I suspect there are other German made clocks (with this mvt) from this era as well as similar clocks but I can't find one. I am not going to make a new hour wheel!
Recommendations?
clock mvt is about 1 7/8" wide and three hairs over 2" in height (sort of).
Thanks!

I am in need of a porcelain dial for an Ansonia iron case clock, like the one pictured. I know they pop up from time to time on eBay, but nothing lately. If anyone has one they will part with, please PM me, and thanks!

I know it’s a long shot but I am looking for the correct bezel and glass for a New Haven number 6 chime. I found this pic but have no way to verify if it is correct.
Thanks

Ronell Clock Company has a few fancy filigree metal dials. None of them are like your picture, but might be close enough. Joe

Hello. I have acquired a Seth Thomas two train crystal regulator which I've disassembled, cleaned, and lubed. It runs fine but I found that two wheels/arbors are completely missing. They are the fly and the next one down (strike train). There is not a ST number on the movement but it says R. KAISER 43225. Some other crystal regulator movements have different plate distancing and/or gearing. Would anyone have parts or such a movement available? Thanks.

The story of this clock is that the clock owner took the clock to a jeweller's shop where he thought he'd find a repairer. this in Western Australian town of Merrebin had this clock sent to another town Albany to get it cleaned but it didn't go so the customer took it back. Then the shop owner where he'd initially left it said it would have to be sent away again. When it came back or so he said, the shop owner wanted $900 when the clock owner had only asked for a quote.
The caveat however was that the strike apparently couldn't be fixed. He took the ratchet wheel off the strike side and wired it to the pillar and blocked up the keyhole, losing the escutcheon along the way. When I reattached the ratchet wheel, the governor fan was loose on the shaft and the strike hammer complete had been removed as well. That however was not all. The rack and the gathering pallet were gone as well. To add insult to injury, the beat setting was soft sodered together.
The customer eventually got the clock back three and a half years later for $100, to get it out of his shop, so the shop owner said.
Here are pictures of the movement. It has the crossed arrows of the HAC style but I believe the movement may actually be a Junghans. So, i am sure I can remove the solder and find a hammer but I'm at a loss as to where I'll ever find the rack and the gathering pallet. This clock is unlike any other I've seen in this regard. I believe that the rack must go on the same fitting as the warning/stop lever. There are two shafts clipped on top with a brass clip.

Does anyone here have pictures of this clock in its intact condition or have these parts at all? Maybe if I see a picture I may be able to make parts?

I have a Waltham CDIA eight day with a cracked balance end stone. Looking for a replacement or part number to look for. I also need a pair of mainsprings 2232 or 2280.

You can see the crack At 2 o’clock and the rust staining around the hole from the slow destruction of the pivot.

That's a weird setup.
I knew if I looked I'd have one though looks like your only missing the rack, the gathering pallet is just the notch in that shaft.
If you want this one its yours or I can measure or take more pics.

Which calendar clock manufacturers have a red calendar hand and which have a black hand? My session short drop time piece has the calendar mechanism but not the hand. I assume Sessions had a red hand but I see black ones for sale and did not know which color was more accurate/authentic. Also, I have another time piece that I cant get the calendar mechanism to work for more than 1 day (moves once then wont move again). Any general hints or rules of thumb on getting these calendar mechanisms to work consistently?
