    KY Floral #44 met today in a new location and the facility met members expectations as being easier to access with amble free off-road parking. Local member Don N. gave a demonstration on clock paper dial restoration using an aerosol spot-lifting product called “K2R”. The secret lies in using a very fine bristle paintbrush to remove the dried cleaning compound, see accompanying picture. The show&tell brought a couple of nice statue clocks in. Chapter President Jim Durbin brought in a nice Ansonia “Minerva” clock with a nice enamel dial and open escapement, see picture. Don N. brought in a restored Waterbury clock. I presented five 16S Hamilton’s, three being 992’s and two 992B’s. One of the 992B’s sports a reproduction dial as the original melamine dial had seen better days as it likely was carried under some pretty harsh conditions in some railroad engineer’s pocket! Two of the cases were WGF and I explained that the white gold alloys are much “harder” than the yellow gold alloys. The next chapter meeting has tentatively been set for the third Saturday in March, 16th, 2019.
    Brad Maisto, Secretary
