I have an old European Electric Synchronous Motor Clock that was built around 1940 by my father. It was running at 110 Volts at 50 Hz with no earth ground or fuse. I have grounded this clock and fused it. However, this clock is running fast since it is running at 60 Hz and the gear train was designed for 50 Hz. I would like to convert this clock to run at 16 volts AC to make it safer per an article from Rod Elliot,who I believe is a member, by creating a new coil with the appropriate turns to have this motor run at this safer voltage. I will then purchase an UL approved 16 volt AC power pack. I will still have the problem with the frequency since this clock is designed to run at 50Hz. I am looking for a way to make this 50 Hz clock useable at 60 Hz using my 16 volt AC Power pack as the power supply. Rod Elliot stated that he was planning on writing another article on how to convert a 50 Hz clock to run on 60Hz. I am anxious to find out if this article is still in the planning phase but have no way of contacting him. Any help on this would be greatly appreciated even if there are other ideas on how to convert this clock to run at 60 Hz and keep accurate time. I want to keep this clock as orginal as possible since it was customed made.
