    I recently got this clock and am trying to get it set up correctly. Mr. Hubby described the correct method to do this
    in an older post. His description is easy to follow but has no pictures of what the contact hardware should look like.
    On my clock the contacts have been modified and i am hoping someone has a running clock that can supply me a good detailed
    photo of the spring loaded contact arm.
    Attached photos of the clock and the contacts. You can see the soldered on contact.

    John may not be following this thread. You might do better
    with a PM to him.
    I've not seen one of these before so I'm not much help.

    Hi, All,

    Not much to add here about this wonderful clock, but it might interest you to know that along with these innovative clocks, this is the same EverReady Company who makes the batteries we all know. In addition, this company was instrumental, along with General Electric, in introducing electric Christmas lights to a marveling public in the early years of 1895-1915 or so. The company has quite a history.

    Warmest regards to All,

    George
