    Hello, new to the forum.

    I recently acquired a 1931 Philco 570 Grandfather Clock Radio. The clock and radio as well as the case are in fair to good condition, but are in need of restoration. The radio I can do as I have restored a few so far. The clock is another matter. The individual I bought this from said the clock did not work. I want to keep the original time piece if at all possible. There is no markings on the case for the clock other than "start" and "handset". No manufacturer label at all. A search of this forum found a few similar clocks but all were slightly different. I have included a few images. The spin start knob is missing but the gear is in tact. The clock works are very dirty. The coil measures at 760 ohms. I have not applied any power to it as of yet until I am more familiar with it.
