Today from a flea market. My wife shook her head once more. I could not resist for 10 €.

Runs really nicely, wound up 1,5 turns, still running and clearly less than 1 minute deviation in the last 12 hours. The crystal needs a good clean, apparently, thats all.

She herself bought something making me in turn shake my head. So we seem to be two nuts having found each other long ago.

Cheers, Bernhard

Congratulations on a nice clock and a wonderful wife, Bernhard! I'm similarly blessed - my wife says we support each other's rampant insanity. She's right...

I think the mechanical kitchen clocks of this era are under-appreciated, some of them are very well made and attractive. Antiques of the future, perhaps.

That would look good sitting on my 1956 GE stove, and pink no less.

Does the stove's clock still run?
As a child I discovered thathe clock had a curved metal tab on the right? side which could be pulled outoperate timing functions.
The tab had several colored segments.
Wouldove to examine one of those clocks today and see how the tab worked.

To be honest, im not sure if it does, but ill check it out. There are also 2 power outlets and one is always live, and the 2nd one only runs by the times. So you could have your coffee pot set to start at a specific time. The rest of the stove works perfectly. Our house was built in 1920 so might as well have an old stove. We put a a 6 year old glass top that we couldnt get the top cleaned out at the curb to make room for the GE. At least someone got a free good working stove

That stove is amazing and so beautiful! Congratulations!
And it works flawlessly. All i did was cleaned the push button switches and put in new burners. We actually even use a 30s waffle iron which again works great.

If you're into the antique electrics, check out Snakehead Vintage for wiring products. I recently purchased some cloth-covered twisted pair power cord and a bakelite plug for a 30's-vintage Warren Telechron clock I'm restoring. Absolutely perfect, and the folks there really understand customer service. No affiliation; just want to give a shout-out to good people with good products.

Are there still commercial AM broadcast companies in the USA?
Yes. Many. And some also have an FM station broadcasting the same program.
We also have some AM Stereo stations!
