Reply to this topic I have to admit it was the 'crows foot' that attracted me to the clock. Last edited by nomeat; at I probably should do the same, time to start searching for clock repairman. I wonder if the summer weather will affect the time keeping?
Lucia. i have traveled extensively all my life due to my father's profession so i know a bit about the world. this is, maybe, why people who date me are amazed by the various topics of conversation i can cover, by the things i know about and also of the things that i am still eager to learn in this life.
I've achieved something similar with my nut and bolt pendulum, hopefully I'll have the real deal in a couple of days then I'll see if I can improve upon that.
Dating Antique Clocks
It is probable that the quantity of clocks that Smiths were then buying would not be enough to keep Enfield viable, so the decision was made to allow them to continue to trade independently, though doubtless Smiths would have ensured priority supplies. Clocks need to be dismantled and all bearings and moving parts cleaned otherwise the old scum acts like an abrasive and will destroy the clockwork over time if you just oil it. They didnt really want to sell me the bottle of oil so I wondered later if they fobbed me off with something like the old 'Singer Sewing Machine Oil', a good product but not what I wanted. This movement was first developed as the F6 and was eventually also developed in respect of the K6 chime movement which had been manufactured from onwards at Ystradgynlais. They later moved to a large purpose built warehouse in Peterborough.
