  1. I saw a grandfather clock today with moon phases painted on it. I know that these could be used to show the phases of the moon. But this one has no drive system at all and never has been I think!, is this unusual or is purley decorative?
  2. No sharp edges drum seems to be ok <iframe width="480" height="360" src="http://s347.photobucket.com/user/Caraenfys/embed/slideshow/"></iframe> http://s347.photobucket.com/user/Caraenfys/library/
  3. My clock had a habit that it would stop, this was because the gut would get snagged, so I had to un snag it and it would go. To prevent this I installed new gut of the recommended size,its gone for a month without probs, but it has decided to do it again. When I wind the drum I feed it on with a knitting needle so that it sits tidily on the drum. Is there anything that I am missing? any ideas how to overcome this, the drum looks OK. Thanks in advance
  4. Thanks for your reply I have ordered some 1.6 mm today, it was not running very evenly on the drum, so i shall see how it goes "!!
  5. What size line should I use on my grandfather clock. I purchased the clock with new line but it keeps snagging and stops the clock, I then have to release the drum a few cm it then will go for a few days. When I wind it I feed the line tidy on the drum.
  6. I have been given a Carillon strike plate from a 1875 town hall clock from my home town, I understand that it controls the amount of strikes a clock does on the quarter half hou etcI have googled it but can`t find nothing that will help me understand how it works.I would be grateful if anybody could give me a guidance on how it works Thanks in advance https://postimg.cc/image/gemsjpn63/

I would be grateful if any body could give me a guidance on how it works. I enclose a photo of what it looks like, it is about 10 inches wide.
  8. I have managed to get an old 14" fusee movement chapel clock dated 1882, it came with a home made case but the case is revolting. Does anybody know the whereabouts of a wooden drop dial case or any sellers that you might know. I have scanned Ebay now for 3 weeks and nothing suitable has been for sale.
