    Hi, I was not sure as to whether to post this in Electric Horology or Clock Repairs? if the moderator could adjudicate and/or duplicate to the Repair section I would appreciate the intervention. I haven't been on this forum before, but then, I rarely work on Electric Clocks, I bought one I would love to put in the home, I was impressed with its Nouveau appearance and style, the case is Australian Silky Oak and it uses a full length G/F Clock Pendulum I have yet to make, the main problem with the clock is there seem to be some coils missing from the movement. (as per the pictures)
    Is there someone out there who knows this movement and/or can supply the electromagnet coil/coils part and pendulum bob please? perhaps something I could adapt?
    In the space where the coils go there are two countersunk holes to attach the electromagnet pack, if measurements or better pictures are required please ask here or give an e-mail address to send them to.
    I am in Queensland Australia, I can pay with Pay Pal and any information on the movement type, diagrams would be greatly appreciated. (powerclocks@hotmail.com)

    Welcome to the forum Graeme, there is a Clock Parts Wanted thread (Click Here) where parts requests should be made, but given you also need technical information and this is not a common clock, I will leave your post here. If anyone can help with these parts, please start a conversation with Graeme and reply to him via a private message.

    Good afternoon, Graeme!

    There is a very active group of electric clocks enthusiasts operating on another forum. Not sure how exactly how you get to them, but they are deeply into Gents, Synchronome and other types of clocks, with parts, documents, etc. You might try sending an inquiry to: ( electric-clocks@groups.io ). You might be able to sign up for the group at ( groups.io ), but not sure how it all works.

    There has been a huge amount of traffic on their board lately. There seem to be some incredibly knowledgeable people there.

    Best regards!

    There seems to be something wrong with the link you posted Tim.

    Wait, I believe I have found the group you referenced: Click Here
