    Facebook?? For clock parts??
    I'm curious, how did you achieve that? Do you belong to some sort of Facebook clock group?
    Just wondering.

    Clocks? Trucks?
    Wow, I'm totally befuddled.
    I'm on Facebook every day and have never seen anything like what you seem to be describing.
    And you're sure you're talking about Facebook, and not CraigsList?
    Wow.

    I had to close my facebook acct. Took too much time! I guess I'm not all that sociable, or would rather not 'listen' to prattle :D

    I'm trying to understand what you mean, hope .... but can't decipher what part you're talking about. Can you describe it a bit more for us?

    sure...when you take the clock apart look at the back of the face. There is a gear with a long piece that goes straight through another gear with a sleeve.....the long piece is the one that the pin goes in to hold the hands......The "sleeve" has pieces on it that the minute hand rides on.....the sleeve on my clock is broken.....I will try and take pics of it again this afternoon....

    So the sleeve is a gear? Sounds like it might be a pinion gear. If not a gear, you might be talking about the hour cannon ... but I doubt that would be broken. So is the gear broken in half or just cracked? If cracked, it could be repaired.

    Sounds like the hour wheel to me. ("y","c" in the linked drawing)
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wheel_train_(horology)#Motion_work
    A common problem on these is damage from trying to remove the hour hand and not knowing how delicate the assembly it is pressed onto is.
    If you don't know how to remove the hour hand, it's easy to break teeth on/bend/break/separate the gear from the "sleeve" (pipe) as the metal is thin and restrained only on one point of its circumference (usually a clip or screw whose primary purpose is to secure the minute wheel) when installed.

    If you look at the diagram there are prongs that the minute hand fit on.....the prongs are broken off so theres nothing moving the hands......make sense? Thank you so much for the diagram:)

    Ah. So the distal end of the cannon pinion is either worn-down or broken off. I've never seen one where the pin that secures the hand goes through it. Actually, I can't inagine a system where that could be a working design. The pin goes through the center staff.
    Rebuilding the end of the cannon pinion could be difficult without a good model to work from. The length of the pipe is fairly critical to proper operation. Especially on the designs that use a taper pin to hold on the hands.
