I have finished the repair on the original clock it just needed some oil an it now runs for 8 days. I have some pictures, you can see how simple this clock is and 108 years old and still runs just like the car. In the picture they look to be a different size but they are the same, the hands on the original clock are much finer . The clock serial numbers are 800 numbers apart. Cheers Colin

Fantastic job. It inspires me to tackle my Phinney-Walker.
Thanks
Rich

Richard The rim wind Stewart & Clark clocks are made by Phinney- Walker so should be the same.All I did to the second clock was oil with clock oil all the posts. oiled the drum part of the wind mechanism and wound it up and it ran for a little better than 8 days. The first clock I bought to see how it worked,it was a bit more work. I dabble with cuckoo clocks and these clocks are much simpler. Cheers Colin

I recently picked up a non-running clock with a similar, small 8-day German movement in the free box at an estate sale.

I put the works in home-brew clock cleaning solution (ammonia, Murphy's oil soap and water) followed by a rinse in water and then put it in the oven at set at 170 degrees so it would dry thoroughly.

I lubricated all the pivots with clock oil and now it runs like a champ.

A real clockmaker would have told me to take it apart in order to clean it in solution, but the lazy way above worked for me.

It's interesting to see the inside of one. I have a couple sitting on the shelf. One runs and one doesn't. I've worked on several mantle clocks just never had the nerve to take those apart.
