    I'm restoring an Ingraham "Treasure Island" banjo as a gift for my 12 year old grandson. There is a series of gold balls that hang from the box, and these are missing. Can someone with this clock measure the balls for me so that I can put on the correct size? Many thanks!

    I'm afraid I am no help but is the project completed?

    Well, yes, in a manner of speaking! I had the originals after all. I had disassembled the clock some time ago and had misplaced the balls, finally discovering them. Felt pretty stupid, I must say, but was happily surprised.

    In the finishing stages now...life interfered, but the case is done and the movement is on the bench now, all cleaned up and being reassembled. I can't believe it's been delayed a year!
