Western Union Self Winding Clock Second/Sweep hand wanted

I was given a non-working broadcast SWCC clock by a friend. It was a mess inside. Looked like someone had tried to convert it to an A/C driven electric clock. Other than that, all the parts were there.

Ken (Ken's Clock Clinic) did a complete and awesome restoration. Because we were moving, I left the clock unassembled after Ken restored it. Somehow in our recent move from AZ to TN, I misplaced the sweep hand and am looking for a replacement. They're rare as hen's teeth so I'm not hopeful, but figured I'd ask anyway.

Thanks,
Fred

A photo of your clock and a photo of the type of sweep second hand would be helpful.

Unfortunately, I don't have a photo of the lost second hand. Attached is a photo of the restored clock minus the second hand. It's a broadcast studio version about 19" in diameter.

Good evening, Fred!

Have you considered asking Ken Reindel if he has a spare he can sell you? Might be a bit embarrassing to have to admit that you can't find the one that was on the clock when he completed the work, but I'll bet he has some around.

Best regards!

Good evening, Fred!

There's also a complete set (hour, minute, sweep second) offered on that famous internet auction site.

Best regards!

Tim
