    I purchased a very nice Schatz #49 for 5 bucks. figured I could not go wrong. took it apart, cleaned it and installed a new suspension spring. runs perfect! then I went to set it up for display and discovered there are no leveling feet. no sign that it ever had them. am I missing a leveling platform for this clock? thanks for your help

    The price was definitely right. If there are no signs that it ever had feet I imagine that's the way it was made. Show us a couple of pictures.

    Quarters, dimes, and business cards work well. I have run across a few that don't have feet. Two shims, 120 degrees apart, will do it. Willie X

    I'll move this over to the 400 day clock forum for more input.

    I use little round stick-on cork pads that I find in hobby section. There are usually several to a card so you can double up if necessary. A lot of anniversary clocks were made without leveling feet.. If there are no threaded holes in the bottom of your base then it was made without feet.

    Maybe a moderator can change the manufacturer spelling in the title...helps with future searches!

    the workman who made the shelf for your clock is supposed to level it....

    I use a cardboard 'plate' cut to match the base and add carboard shims
    that way I can glue it together for where ever the clock is going to live.

    I know there are prize hunting grounds and so you may not want to answer...
    where did you get the clock?

    I figured there must be a unit that fits under the clock base to level. I guess I can use plastic leveling plates from the plumbing store :)

    Hi Victor, I am in western New York State. lots of these clocks at yard and household sales. the estate sales people around here are usually out of this world with their prices. sadly very few rare clocks I did pick up a 2 jewel Schatz for 2 dollars at a yard sale. after cleaning and a new suspension spring it keeps perfect time.
