  1. Thanks for your reply, perhaps it does not quite do that, the spring seems a bit weak to me, so i have ordered a new one on line. I cant take it to the clock maker to repair for obvious reasons, so is there any hints or tips i can have to install the spring in a proper manner? Thanks in advance
  2. Which is the best position for the spring to be on the clock, i think that my spring has gone a bit weak, so does not pull the rack back.Any one has any suggestions to correct this
  3. I purchased a long case clock mechanism in a sale.The rack was loose in the box but i have secured it to the mechanism.The clock goes but it chimes totally erratic, it can strike ten, then on the next it could be five.Have i done something wrong when i put the rack back?, has things got to line up properly in the right position or does it not matter. I would be very grateful for any tips on this matter Thanks in advance
  4. 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?
  5. 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/
  6. 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
  7. 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 "!!
  8. 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.
  9. 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/
  10. 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 hour etc. I have googled it but i can`t find nothing that will help me understand how it works. 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.
  11. 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.
