Ok, well turns out the clock is from Waterbury Clock Co. It's a triple plate, 1 side for the time, other for the alarm.
It's from Jan 29 1901 as the seller could not see the leading and trailing 1s.
So that should solve the tuesday issue. I suppose.
Got it working so-so.
I had to make a spring for the tension washer. So that it would turn the hands from power of the minute hand.
Just a piece of spring wire and a bushing to hold tension in place.
The hairsping was a bit difficult to say the least. Had to reshape it. I spent a few hours doing that. You know how it is when sweat starts dripping down the rim of your magnifier visor.
I also found another good gotcha on these little pin palette escapement. On the lever/anchor assembly you have to check to see if everything is square. Really square.
What happened on mine is that the lever that reaches into balance wheel pin was bent ever so slight and would make a slight contact/bump when the balance wheel pin returns into contact. The pin would bump into leading fork tong, instead of the airspace between them.
So I have a new saying now,
Square your lever prongs, or your balance won't last long.
Well, maybe it could use some work. But it sure did improve things. It went from a movement that appeared to be robbed of power somewhere allong the time train to a semi-healthy balance wheel motion.
Even though it's still a tad week, might be old worn mainspring, it starts to move with the slightest disturbance. I have had other hairspring type movements that acted like this and eventually just began to run. Don't know why other than to say things worked itself out.
I checked on ebay for simular Waterbury alarm clocks. I see a simular model called the wasp and am of the opinion that this is one of those. Maybe a brass version.
A little disappointed because I thought this clock was military issue. I have already given the seller good feedback. At this point you know how it is, why bother with a feedback war. I should have wrote asking questions about it being military and what prompted them to think it was. I did ask post sale and I get no response.
Ahk, oh well.
