|Comment||Perfect advice. After unscrewing one of the gear screws, I rotated the gear clockwise a few teeth. After that, the 4th hammer struck the last note. Originally, I tried to move it (one tooth at a time) counter clockwise, but that just set the 4th hammer further away from being able to strike. I bought this movement on ebay, so you are probably right about the previous owner "playing around" with it before I received it. Thank you again for this advice. I have 5 tambour mantel clocks. This is the only one that was not working properly. Now it is. Thanks !|
Answers by Expert:
I can not think of any questions I cannot answer in regard to repairing antique clocks or radios. However, I am sure there are a few I have not heard and may not be able to answer. If I cannot, I will say so. I have been repairing them since I was a young child.
My experience includes repairing CooKoo clocks, Westminsters, BimBam, almost all antique clocks. I do a bit of repair on battery clocks where the value is sufficient to warrant working on them. I also repair antique (tube type) radios - all makes.
