    I just received a call from a gentleman seeking help with his electric clock. The dial is marked: New York Standard Watch Co., patented Feb. 28,96. He is no longer able to find batteries for this clock. It runs about two months on two D cells. I have the book on Electric Horology, but it does not mention voltage or number of batteries needed to run the clock. Are the batteries available? Any additional information would be appreciated.

    The one I had ran on 3VDC. You can still buy those big dry cells, but they weigh less now. I suggest going to a hobby shop, and buying what are called Hobby Batteries. They have the short, squared lantern battery cases, but screw terminals, and 1 1/2 VDC each. Beter yet, get a 3VDC 300 ma Power supply, and plug it in to the wall.
