    Hi all!
    My mom told me of an old clock that belonged to her grandmother that has been in storage for a while, so went and dug it out. it's not in good shape. It's missing the pendulum and the part to secure the hands om.

    I took the movement out (dirty!) and could find no markings on it besides the Logo, which I'm guessing places it around 1890's?

    My question to those more knowledgeable than I is where in the world to find parts for this, and any other info you may have. Thanks!

    I'm not sure why there have been so few replies to this thread as we have some very knowledgeable members here. All I can say is I feel that a manufacturing date around 1900 (plus or minus 10 years) would be about right for this clock. You will not be able to buy original off the shelf parts, you you will need to hunt Ebay or adapt new parts from one of the parts supply houses (Click Here For A List). What parts do you need? There is a PARTS WANTED THREAD that you can post to as well.

    Really I just wanted some information about the clock as I know next to nothing about it. In the process of fixing it and have had it all apart and back together. Now i think it needs a new mainspring as it will run for about 6 before stopping. No idea how long the tension was left on this old spring with no operation.

    It's almost never the mainspring, El Dio. Even a badly set spring would run your clock for several days.
    The MB is running terribly slow today, so people may be passing on the pictures until it straightens up :)

    Better now. Your movement seems intact, other than the pendulum. It needs to be cleaned up and some of those repairs redone correctly. I would guess that the pendulum would swing an inch or so off the floor of the case. That will get you in the ball park for length. Someone here will eventually be able to help with the style needed :)
