Question
where can I buy a part? Said part attaches at the top of the pendulum mechanism?
Said part attaches to a slotted "dowel" and has a hole in the top portion with two "legs" dropping approx. 3/16" to another flat piece with a "pin".
This pin is for hanging "pendulum suspension" piece.

Clock is a Daneker "Senator" model

Answer
There are two online places you can purchase parts for antique clocks. They are as follows:
www.merritts.com  and
www.timesavers.com

Merritts has their suspension springs on pages 93-97 of their catalog.
Timesavers has suspension springs on pages 88-91 of their catalog.

You should be able to access these catalogs online.

Expertise

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.

Experience

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.
