some of you may remember a thread I posted several months ago about a Jacques 13 tube clock I happened across with no tubes. it turns out that yesterday was the day I finally went back over there and pulled the trigger on it. this is a photo of the clock sitting in the warehouse as I found it. a few movement pics to follow: this clock has had a good service not too long ago. all of the winding bushings have been replaced this is the cabinet in my truck. this one has some issues with the 3/4" pine bottom too. someone did some repair at one time. this is a different type of repair than I would perform. something I will get to eventually. for now, I just have designs to clean up the cabinet and get the time train to run. this is the movement sitting on my "bench" or kitchen table. it is absolutely massive. the plates are easily 2x the surface area of my other Jacques. I would guess the hunk of brass in this photo weighs about 14lbs! I oiled everything and checked it out really good before putting it back in the cabinet. there are a couple issues. the gathering pallet on the strike train is missing. it appears to be the same as the one on my 11 tube movement. at some point, I'll take it off that clock and try it on this one. I tried to shoot a photo with my phone, but when I was going through to put them on line there was no pic. for some reason, the click spring on the chime side was not making contact with the click. this one holds the 35lb weight. I can tell there is evidence where someone has unsuccessfully played around with it a bit. I was able to get the screws out and adjust it so it now works properly.
