I've done a few of these. Watch the clicks and click springs. They are prone to failure. Your dial seems to be pretty decent. Mine were trashed. They clean up real nice. Have fun :)

Beautiful! Yes I have been spotting this clock at a consignment/ antique store for about two years and I have always wanted it but the price was way to high, but after the owners got to know me they decided to sell it for 50 and I am super siked! Definatly a keeper.

thanks again,

It's best not to wind up any sessions clock until the click/ratchet mechanism has been overhauled, or at least checked by an expert. Willie X

So with this clock and the cuckoo in your other post, it's clear you've dived into the deep end of the pool. Bravo!

I just cleaned it without dissasembly but I am not too confident in it. The springs are rusty, and the entire movement is pretty gummyed up even after a spot clean. The good news is, after giving all the bushings a real solid cleaning and oil removal with the pithwood stick, I realized that the movement is probably not going to need any bushings. I plan to overhaul and thouroughly clean the entire movement and replace the springs in the near future, but for now, the cleaning job that I did should suffice.
