Apparently I can't count either. Of course since I'm having problems counting I may be wrong. I've never had a barrel spin inside of the hose clamp. Waterbury had rounded corners to its clock movements, which were often made of brass or brass-plated steel. I clamp the spring winder to my bench with the crank handle on the right.
It looks to be fully wound so it should run. I've never heard anyone say anything bad about the Ollie Baker, just never owned one. The pendulum is attached to the long wire that is hanging down on the back of the movement, it should have an upturned end to accept the pendulum. Bob There were at least three different versions of this movement. I have acquired it from my deceased , sister. I'll get back to you with I do further checking.
Trademark Waterbury was a large enough manufacturer that it marked all its clocks with its company name. Do you know where I could have it put together and working again. The pendulum bob is correct for the clock. This movement has a strip deadbeat escapement with a very small escape arc the minimum swing needed for the clock to tick. Should it not spin unrestricted and not come into contact with the wheel shown in the 2nd photo as it engage the hammer for the strike. I don't recall having any issues. This should initiate the strike sequence of the front movement each hour.
I had one of these slip out and fly like a bullet clear across the room. Are the plates secure when I unscrew the posts of either plate or does it loosen all 3 plates? Yours appears to be the older version with a count wheel strike count wheel isn't visible in your pictures. I've attached two photos of the pin barrell and the locking plate. I believe yours is the count wheel version which I do not have, but perhaps this part is similar. Local clock repair house kept this for over a year and was no help. I wear a leather glove on my left hand to hold the barrel. But in the last photo, it appears that the strike is a count wheel design.
I think it is missing a pin - but how it revolves to catch the next pin escapes me. The bob has a looped wire running through it. The other issue is the hour strike. The strike lifting pin is coming into contact with the cam wheel. The boxy base has a brass toned filigree trim, and the front panel has incised lines.
They don't spin under the clamp and you're not going to be straining your winder against a full wind, or at least you shouldn't be. Not sure I'm clear on my question but don't want to release all 3 plates at the same time if possible. The barrel is very small and I don't see how it can have all 4 quarters. The chime movement on the back activates the strike movement which is on the front when the strike lift pin on the locking plate raises the strike lifting lever. It looks like this must be placed properly since it kicks off the strike on the hour.
Now the movement starts the strike sequence correctly on the hour. If the strike will run, try to make it run until it runs down as much as possible first. Any help on where to place the drop lever to start the chimes correctly would be appreciated. We use only the best Bergeon bushings and polish all pivots with the Rollimat pivot polisher. The video below shows the clock striking: When the clock arrived in my shop, the finish had been stripped from the case. The other issue is that the center arbor doesn't have a square to chuck, just a gear this is a gear reduction winder.
When you do this make sure the bottom part with the hook faces the door opening so it will be easier to hang the pendulum bob. Thanks, Bob Folks, I found the answer to my question above. See the Resources section for links to Waterbury clock photos that may help you identify your clock, and to a specific Waterbury identification guidebook. I would purchase it again. Key Included: Yes Style: American Empire Condition.
The hose clamp needs to be securely tightened, of course, but you don't have to get crazy about it. Trying to keep this easy to understand. Springs that are too strong will cause wear. If someone is familiar with this clock I would appreciate help in how to release the brass barrel spring on this clock. Contact our site Administrator at. That means there isn't much length to clamp in the chuck.
