We overhauled this clock and I thought it might be interesting to others. It's English from around the 1820's. I've seen the rocking ship animations and recently a soldier on a horse, but not a swan. I took the video with my old Droid but it's not too bad.
We were asked to check this and service. I thought it was interesting
enough to make a video.
This movement is out of a Colonial hall clock model #1389 circa. 1921. We had just finished the overhaul and had it running on the test stand.
This movement had a few problems (bent and filed levers) which have now been repaired.
This is a vintage metronome which was brought to us for restoration after a not so smooth trip through the mail. The sound starts toward the end. Turn up the volume so you can hear the bell.
We were asked to service this bird box since it hadn’t run in years.
For some reason I hadn't seen this type of strike mechanism in my over 20 years of clock repair.
