Question
I inherited an Linden Westminster Chime Mantel Clock from my grandfather. For some reason the pendulum and associated rod assembly (I'm not sure the proper terminology) is missing. Maybe it was taken off during transport. I know this clock isn't particularly valuable but would like to get it running if not to expensive. Can you tell me what pendulum assembly I would need to purchase? On the back of the movement is stamped:
73
Cuckoo Clock MFG Co. Inc.
NO (0) Jewels
Made in West-Germany
Unadjusted
341-020
11 CM
Thank You

Comment - On a scale of 1-10, I would give Mr. Saunders a 15 on each category. His responses were clear, addressed my questions and concerns in a way that even I could understand, and even sent a picture. He explained what I had and how to resolve the issue. I was amazed at how quickly he replied to each on my e mails. He shouldn't get a gold star, he should get a whole box of them!!! Thank you Mr. Saunders, I will keep you on my e-mail "speed dial". Comment - Ken answered my question regarding how to adjust the proper striking of the hammers on my Grandfather clock within a few minutes of my sending the question to him. He answered my follow-up question the next morning. I would rate him higher if there was a number larger than ten in the selection box. Thanks again Ken Comment - I RECEIVED AN ANSWER WITHIN AN HOUR.OUTSTANDING SERVICE.YOUR RATING SHOULD BE HIGHER THAN 10. Comment - This Man is Fantastic...there is no Scale for a Professional...like him...if there was...He'd beat the top of it...off.....and Smile....I could never ask for more ....this Man is TOPS.......100+......is his Score.... Comment - It's happening!! The clock has run for about 8 hours...I appreciate your quick response and clarity of directions. Thanks so much ! Kenneth really knows his stuff, he has the knowledge about where you can buy replacement parts and where to get repair service or do it yourself. I think I can fix it myself and receive the full value of my clock. He even sent me pictures of clocks like mine sold online so I could get a good idea of the value. Thank you Kenneth for responding so fast and making me feel so confident in repairing my own clock. I vote Kenneth Volunteer of the Year.
