    It may have originated in a factory near you if you live in an industrial area..Many of these machines were run off electrical master clocks but yours, with a pendulum, is obviously a mechanical one. I've read that the movements of this type is is of fine quality.
    Sorting out the printer unit can be a challenge !

    I have a few of these. it is a high quality fusee time clock with a large strong fusee because it runs the clock and stamp mechanism. Clean it up properly, check it over and lube it and it will run forever, great clock. There is a website with some info .You say youre new don't mess with the fusee before doing some homework on it. It is a very powerful spring and can hurt.

    I have had several of these and they are nice clocks to work on, but do be careful, as has already been stated, the springs on these are very powerful indeed and can cause damage if not treated carefully.

    If you search this site (use the little magnifying glass icon at the top of the page) you will find a great deal of information on these clocks.

    As this is not an electric clock, perhaps a moderator can move it to the right forum, where you may get even more responses.
