Hello all, I wanted to show off my most recent purchase. This Kaiser Grand Universe (plate 1309A) was at a local estate auction. I had slightly known the gentleman who had recently passed as he was a clock repair hobbyist like myself and I occasionally did some work for him when he did not have the equipment to do it with. There were about 60 clocks in the auction.. mostly fairly ordinary clocks and I came home with 3 of them.. including a Chauncey Boardman 30 hour steeple clock with a fusee movement. The Kaiser did not even make the sale bill so I was surprised to see it. I have not seen one like this and have been doing my research for the last couple of days. I have it running with good rotation but it has stopped a couple of times in 48 hours. I have not done anything other than put it in beat so I am sure I will be tearing it down soon for a complete servicing. It seems to be in good to very good condition but could use some polishing. I believe the dome is original to it also. I found the drawing of the hidden part of the pendulum in the repair guide and see that the hand tension is completely different than I have seen before but the repair guide has excellent drawings which will make re assembly easier.
