    Here's a few photo's of a couple of O.B.McClintock outside clocks I'm in the process of restoring. Just built a new frame using the old rusted out frame as a guide. Chimes and slave movements are fitted up along with hands and doors. A bit more work to do before fabricating the copper top, bottom and sides. Hope to start in on the copper in a couple of weeks as time allows. I made new hands as I only had one set and they were only good as patterns.
    With the stained glass dials one is original and the other I made, can you tell which one? As you can see the cases are different sizes, the one I'm currently working on is the smaller one with 24" dials the other has 30" dials the smaller case is around 7 feet and the larger case is around 9 feet when fully assembled. I'm also in need of a pair of iron mounting brackets if anybody knows of any.
    Hoping there are others that have McClintock bank clocks to share their stories & photo's.
    George

    Hello, Just finished folding all of the copper and thought I would toss in a few photo's if anyone would care to see. Many more projects yet to do including coming up with a design for the leaded glass upper panels, would like to use a period arts n crafts design. hoping to get this case mounted by Christmas,we'll see.

    Hello,adding a few photo's of the clock now that it's complete. I made the upper advertizing glass panel as art piece true to the period and design of the case. It's a rendition of a Frank Loyd Wright design from 1914. I was hoping to see other McClintock bank clocks restored or not, even in pieces on the floor! on this thread. Hopefully there are others that would like to add?
    regards
    George

    So very lovely. distinctive and cool! And I just love that stained glass. (Would I be correct in assuming that it's the only one on the block?)

    Thanks,other than the second one in the shop it's the only one in the neighborhood. Fortunately all our neighbors enjoy the chimes, so long as they are on time. I run the chimes between 10:00am and 7:00pm.

I have the new copper completed for the larger case but I'm still looking for the cast iron mounting brackets to proceed if anybody knows of any? attached is an updated video of the one mounted on our house.
    thanks

    I know this is quite an old post, but I wanted to compliment the job you did. Magnificent restoration on a very elegant clock. Wish institutions and public buildings were still being built with this kind of class attached.

    Thanks for your kind words. It was a fun project and we enjoy the clock daily. I wish more of these clocks had been saved but apparently there remains little interest in old bank clocks.

    Well, now this post is older still, but I wanted to say exactly what Uncle Lem said. I
    received a call today from a customer who has a McClintock slave clock which needs some work. Until today, I had never heard of these clocks, thus my stumbling onto this thread. These clocks are wonderful! They are public works of art! I'm looking forward to learning more about them.

    Reviving this thread.

    Does anyone know what model this McClintock would have been? (click on picture to enlarge) Can anyone tell me more about what features would have been typical for this model? This picture is in Concord, NC and probably long gone and destroyed by the company that installed the "digital" type sign and clock that replaced it in the late 50's or early 60's. We may actually look for a replacement to restore and install. I'm guessing they are pretty hard to come by, at this point.

    Thanks for any help!

    Scott,

    I found this clock in Granger TX three or four years ago. I don't know the model, but it looks very similar to the one in your image. Perhaps the pictures will help identify your clock.

    There are also a couple of pictures in past issues of the Bulletin, including one in the April 1994 issue that might be helpful.
