Hi everyone, I have a couple of questions about a 1924 S.T. #4 movement that our state Chapter is restoring as a public project. 1. Can anyone give us some ideas on correct/authentic paint colors? These plates and the top bridge still have some flaky brittle flecks of red, the weight plates and the pendulum bob are a dull green, and the rest of the weight and the support base are black. There are so many "reds" available! Is there a standard or original color that we should look for? Are the brass wheel spokes usually painted also, or lacquered? The latest coat of paint on the cast iron case was black, but there is evidence of a green layer somewhere beneath. We would appreciate any recommendations! 2. The only way we can see to set the hands on the four dials would be to loosen a lock screw or two in the hand drive take-off system, either at the universal joint above the top bridge, or on the bevel gear on the second arbor which drives the vertical shaft. If one of those options is taken, then the setting dial on the front plate won't match the 'public' hands. There appears to be no disconnect at the escapement for free-wheeling that I have seen in bigger tower clocks. This photo shows the minute arbor where the setting dial is placed in front and the hand shaft take-off in the rear. Does this large nut holding the wheel in place have something to do with changing the hands? Thank you for any advice!
