Maybe some of you remember this clock: This is Pete Riegel's repro Seth Thomas #2, in a new setting. I inherited it and plan to continue caring for it. This in spite of it being my first mechanical clock. I am not unfamiliar with old machines in general, and also inherited more than my share of mechanical aptitude. So I'm confident I can carry on Dad's mission of keeping this one going. Mods/admins, please add a "deceased" tag to Pete Riegel's profile, as of 5/28/18. Now, about the clock: It's a Seth Thomas #2 regulator, # 1477 of 4000, 1976 re-issue, with Dad's steel pendulum rod. Once I got it running again (only needed winding and several re-starts to get the idea that it was supposed to run again) I noticed that it ran fast from 0-30 minutes, and slow from 30-59. This was because the square hole in the minute hand was larger than the square shaft, allowing about 4 minutes of slop. I don't know why Pete put up with this. The fix was easy, if crude: Remove the hand, smack it with a hammer to close up the hole and replace it. I'm sure I'm not the first to do this. I check the clock against the display on my cable box's "network time" and it's currently 4 seconds fast. It's been running for 48 hours nonstop, so I think it's good to go now. My other clocks are quartz or digital, and there's also a Lacrosse radio-controlled clock that reads an hour slow regardless of what I do to it. I'm more comfortable with the old technology. I have 4,000 pounds of it in my driveway, circa 1988: If I can keep this old booger running, the clock should present no special challenges. Looking forward to annoying you all with dumb questions and more tales of Pete's ST2.
