• Upcoming updates
    Over the next couple of weeks we will be performing software updates on the forum. These will be completed in small steps as we upgrade individual software addons. You might occasionally see a maintenance message that will last a few minutes at most.

    If we anticipate an update will take more than a few minutes, we'll put up a notice with estimated time.

    Thank you!

Does anyone have some pictures of the clutch properly installed in the minute shaft? I received one for repair and the minute hand will not advance. Discovered the clutch spring is missing. My somewhat faulty memory tells me it goes on the back of the minute shaft with a small bushing.

I think that's a popular design. (The spring behind the gear w/ a collet.) I would think that many of the Seth Thomas movements would have a similar design. If you can find one to look at.

I don't have anything on a Seth Thomas 120F but here is the clutch assembled and apart from a 120-L and 120-J, I would expect the 120-F to be essentially the same.
