    Clockortwo,
    Great clocks. Another Seth Thomas nut like myself?
    I have the near twin to your #6 regulator with the the beveled backboard. Looks like the only difference is the nickel trim. Does your #6 have nickel door hinges? It looks like a nickel beat plate.
    When I got mine, it had a brass bob on it...old but obviously replaced. It had the nickel hinges and beat plate so I hunted until I found a great original nickel damascened bob.

    My fickr page also has a new clock or two. The first entry is my new Seth Regulator #7 in walnut with nickel trim.

  8. Hello to Clockortwo, inbeat and bartime…

    Bartime,
    I’ve been off-line awhile and just saw your 02/10/07 posting. I’ll get back to you with the Ansonia Standards information (if you are still interested in the date).

    clockortwo and inbeat….
    I know I have visited both your sites before, but they are well worth the trip over and over and over again.

    clockortwo… nice assortment of good looking clocks. Keep adding, and I’ll keep checking in. I see both a Garfield and Lincoln. My Lincoln should be heading my way in mid-March. I’m also waiting on the TimeSavers weights. Your information on the weights was most helpful.

    inbeat.. Impressive Seth Thomas collection (and others). Your No 2’s collection is outstanding and extensive. Your “Signet” caught my eye. I started my collecting with the purchase of a short drop calendar wall clock several years ago, ever since have long had a soft spot for all short drops. To me the “Signet” is an exceptional case design.

    Personally the “Post Your Clock Collection” and “Your Newest Acquisition” threads continue to be one of my favorites. I hope one and all will continue to update and post any clock additions.

    Hey clockjim,

    Gotta confess....while I have had a gazillion #2's I currently only have the two at the front of the collection.
    The #2's at the end are a few of the ones that I have had in the past.
    While I love Seth stuff...I have an addiction to #2's...hard to pass them up and then in the end, I have no idea what to do with them....so they go with special ones staying...having all the woods was cool, but again...I like to use wall space for other harder to find clocks.
    I have oak in the family room and bed rooms and dark woods in the living room and dining room
    I always will have #2 parts around though.
    I have always liked the Lincoln and Garfields and have had several but again...hard to find spots for them...they really need a good shelf or mantle for display and I find that difficult.
    Good luck with the weights...as I had posted earlier, I have tried them and they seem to be fine.....

    Inbeat. GREAT Santa Fe Railway clocks. I have the same pair. My number 2 has a Quarter Sawn Oak case and my Short Drop has an Oak case. I noticed your door on your Number 2 has "Santa Fe Route" on the glass. I have not seen that before on a Number 2. My glass has AT&SF RR in gold letters. Is your lettering in the gold"leaf"? :cool: It looks like it in the picture. Those are great clocks. :thumb: I only collect Santa Fe Railway clocks and it was nice to see your pics. Here is a link to my clock pics. Nothing fancy but it works. John

    Unbelievable, my Number 2 is from the Freight Office in Newton, KS!!! It is marked J73 on the back of the dial, just below the dial on the inside, and inside the case. It also has the form 1649 quoting J73, Newton, KS Freight Office. Unbelievable that your short drop is from Newton also! My short drop is from the 26th St. yard office in Vernon, CA. John

    Scottie,

    The "mouse clock" is everyone's favorite and my biggest nightmare! The movements in the models 1 and 2 were really not very sturdy and barely have enough power to drive all the extra stuff that makes the mouse go up and down the clock. One of the big problems is with the movement being in the bottom and the open slot above it, dust gets in and it has to be cleaned often.......I just had it apart yesterday. I could never afford one, even if I could find one, but a family member had this one for many many years, and I got it if I would fix it and make it run. Hope you can find one, they are a lot of fun but definately high maintenance to keep running right.

    Bob

    Thanks for the complement. These are two of my favorites, but then all of them are special to me in one way or another. I really like the old wooden movements. Don't understand how anyone can say that something that has lasted for 175 years is too fragile to run. I run these all the time......if something breaks, I'll just glue it back together or carve out a new part! Hard to do that with brass, and the "springs" will never get weak either!

    Hey everyone!

    It's been quite a while since I updated my website, but I just finished a small update.

    This clock has ALL new photos:
    http://www.angelfire.com/me5/clockman/anniv.html

    I added these two clocks:
    http://www.angelfire.com/me5/clockman/slatemarti.html
    http://www.angelfire.com/me5/clockman/mbvienna.html

    And I updated these pages:
    http://www.angelfire.com/me5/clockman/comingsoon.html
    http://www.angelfire.com/me5/clockman/wishlist.html

    Next on my list will be to photograph my diamond dial clock, and add it, then I need to go through my wish list again, and add new clocks. I also need to stain and varnish the pegs for my Black Dial clock, then I can take photos of it and add it also.

    Here it is! As you can see, I have varied interests.
    I have a couple of Golden Hour Mystery (I came accros an Exciting Hour a while back- probably the rarest clock I've owned) clocks I'd like to restore.
    I also like the old Westclox alarms, I had no idea there were so many models!
    And, I have a love of the 400 day clocks.

    Hi John, thanks for the idea...I think I'm going to include a link to my collection website in my signature. Nice collection, Mr. Spaceman! (wasn't there a song by the Byrds called that?). That Guildclock flying ball clock is amazing, I never heard of it...is it a repro of the original New Haven? I thought the Horolovar repro was the only repro of it.

    Thanks for the comments, Doug!
    Yes, the Guildclock is definitely a modern replica (a very small replica, as it's only about 4 inches tall), but I don't know anything about whether it's pattered after an older clock.
    Thanks again,

    Hello.
    I would like to learn more about P. H. Mourey at least four of my clocks are by him. I do have a little information however Mr Mourey's life seems to be a mystery, his name can be found on many clocks, It seems most of the work was for clock maker Japy Freres.

    Thanks

    Hi Harold,

    I would say that engine room clocks are a subset of ships clocks. They don’t strike., and where a ship’s clock could be used on deck, in the radio room, wheelhouse, foc’sail, etc, the engine room clock would be used…..in the engine room. The one on the lower right has a revolution counter built into it. That would have been linked to the steam engine mechanically with rods so it would have to be close. It was used to count the revolutions for maintenance purposes.
    Regards,
    Jeff

    Hey group! I have no idea how far back this thread has gotten, so I had to use Google to find it. Seems it hadn't been updated since late Nov of 2009.

    I'm updating to say that I've finally updated the page with another clock (the diamond dial) seen here:
    http://www.angelfire.com/me5/clockman/DiamondDial.html

    I still have lots more updates to make, but I never seem to find the time to take photos, or work on the pages. I may end up remaking a whole new layout for the website, but that just seems like a lot of work right now...

    Don, to answer your question from several months ago, no there's nothing I can do about the popups. The reason the site is free is because they advertise their junk on it through the use of the adds at the top and bottom, and the popups. I would suggest you use a better internet browser (such as Firefox) which automatically blocks 90% of popups, OR that you buy/download/use a separate popup blocking program.

    FYI, Sooth et al., the sticky at the top of the forum (Post Your (Maker's Name) Clocks) contains a link to this thread (General Collections). I hope that makes the hunt for it a bit less tedious.
