Recently purchased the above clock and the second hand dial does not work. after pulling the unit apart it appears that the fiber gear is grinded and does not engage the metal motor gear. Where can I purchase this gear in order to fix the beautiful clock. Any thoughts would be much appreciated. Thank you.

don’t know what a ”World Clock - T.D. -2400 (1962)” is… perhaps photos would help?

Highly unlikely you’ll be able to find a donor movement… But you can always check eBay. You might have to have a new part made.

No idea if that would be worthwhile as I have no idea what kind of clock we’re talking about

Grinded? :???: Photo's not too good, but it looks as if all the teeth on the fibre wheel has lost its teeth; before doing anything you need to find why that happened. I suspect the rotor bearings have seized up so that needs sorting first.

As for finding a new wheel, that might be difficult so you might have to have one made - as Bruce says, we need to find what sort of clock it is and if you intend to spend money on it and/or keep it. More pictures would be good.

Timing Devices Company TD-2400 Military wall clock - (1962). When the clock box enclosure was opened the debris from the fiber wheel was on the enclosure walls. I removed all metal gears ultrasonic cleaned put back together the movement works without any friction at all smooth sailing. The clock does not have any bearings the end shafts sit in the body of the mechanism housing. Attached find photos of the clock and revised picture of the grinded fiber wheel. Is there a person that I can send the gear to to determine the number of teeth, Gear pitch for replacement? I appreciate your time and opinion regarding this clock. I purchased this clock for next to nothing and really like the look and feel of this clock. The fiber spur gear is placed next to the metal motor (see 4th image). The clock worked fine for about 7 days after purchase. Thank you.
