Here are some of my clocks. Some still need to be repaired/serviced (must have something to keep me busy) They are in my "clock room/workshop" as the wife holds strict control as to what is put in the house. I think it is a state shared with plenty of us on this site.

By the way it is 31degs C at the moment:)

I have to as it is so full of my clocks and clock stuff and my workshop for the woodwork is one of the garages attached to the house. It does not get very cold here so I can work year round.:)

Please post your website here so that all may view your clock collection.This is so that we can capture the clock collections at one location so that they are not scattered in several different areas and or topics. This will attempt to make viewing easier and locating a wider variety of clocks and what you like to collect. Please give a brief description of the types/names of makers of what will be viewed. Thanks Mike
Here is one from way back. Several others have tried. Interesting at times I thought. Alot of these folks/photos have come and gone. Mike

That American round-top column clock in Rosewood is gorgeous. What company is it? Jerome? E.N.Welch? Any photo of the interior/label?

Actually, looking closer, it could be burled walnut rather than Rosewood.
I believe that is the Holloway posted earlier in another thread, English with American movement.

Correct it is a holloway with address on label inside as the Minories London.THink this was the last gasp of the old English clock industry from aprox 1895 before the mass production from US brought cheaper clocks to all. Guess it came to Australia with the wave of europeans in early 60s.



I think it is a Welch movement but it is not very good and makes terrible noise on striking as all the wheels whirr around and small hammer hits a bit of curled wire gong whch all sounds cheap. Case also nice outside but cheaply made inside. Finally presume hands should match but not sure which option to follow if I correct this. I guess many clocks look great in photos but when you see them and live with them and strip them down some faults become apparent.

I have three Americal clocks Ansonia (good) Gilbert (Good ) and the Welch and a cheap paper dial whic are both very poor movements even if they are 100 years +. Presume American market had a high end and a low end.

Generally, American made clocks are noisier while they strike, but you may also have a loose fan (tension spring). I usually slide it apart and make sure that the fan is nice and flat when the arbour isn't passing through it, which gives it maximum stiffness when reassembled. The case looks American in style, but with European hardwood veneers, and a brass bezel (would have been wood on an American made case for this style). The hands should likely be Maltese (cross) style.

Could be the fan wheel's bearing starting to wear out, too. One of my mantel clocks has a slightly worn fan wheel bearing and it is noisier than the others when it starts up.

I recently became interested in old clocks when I bought a Hamilton 22 Chronometer. More on that clock later.

The one that I am working on now has been in my family since the sixties. UM Muller clock. Lion on left side of back plate (tail down). Below that UM. And below that 198528. On the right side of the plate are the marks P 438. I found out a bit about the company online: Uhrenfabrick Muhlheim, UM Muller & Co. Any information will be great. I read somewhere that the 198528 tells a good bit about the year it was made.

I've managed to get the clock running and keeping good time. The clock has not been oiled for 30 years and I want to see if I can do that on my own.

Is this the correct place to post this information? This is my first time here. Correct my mistakes. I will join at some point in the near future. I'll go back for membership info.

Thank you.

Tom,

Welcome to the board!

We have a thread dedicated to UMMC clocks.

In addition, we will be able to provide much information to you.

Thanks for this reply. I did post something on the rsm-rose link.

I look forward to a response and I'm keen to learn the way to oil properly this UM Muller clock.

I will also look at the chronometer link.
Thank you. TM

Tom, you are welcome.

John Hubby is an expert in RSM and UMMC clocks and he will respond to your post. John's plate is quite full, so it may take some time.

Regards.

Thank you. I look forward to John Hubby's response and fully appreciate the fullness of his life and work (and that of many others). I'm in no hurry; your response is helpful.

What other links should I study to begin learning about the fundamentals of clock maintenance? Again, no hurry, merely enjoying the learning process.

Tom

we used to be able to have albums on here to show our collections, but I'm not sure what you do about those now. All of my clocks have been loaded up here as pics over the years, it would be good to be able to have them in albums to share.
