Previously I had 2 problems - missing dome, poor running, stopping after a few days. After 9 months searching on the web, I found a flower supply shop in Surrey, England which had the perfect dome on sale, 29 GBP, down from 80GBP. They would not post to anywhere, let alone Australia! Pack and Send quoted 152GBP!
Fortunately a sister was only half an hour away, picked it up and packed the dome- double boxed in peanuts, normal small package mail. Took 3 weeks from UK to Australia.

Forum advice on the poor running was to increase the voltage to 4.5 volts from the 3.0v I was using. This created another problem of the armature locking with the coil. I placed slips of 3M Postit in the gap and lo and behold not only is the clock running well, the clunk on each impulse is so much less.

Perseverance is the key! IMG_1680.jpg
