Broken/missing gear tooth

Recommended Posts

Stripped a chiming wall clock movement today. Customer said it had just stopped. It was not that dirty cleaned the wheels plates etc and then found this. It's the first wheel that drives the watch movement side I presume this is not repairable. It also needs re-bushing but with this there is now no point.

That needs a completely new pinion cut, then the wheel will need to be remounted. If it is a relatively new clock and you know the make you might be able to get a replacement. Do you have someone that undertakes wheel and pinon cutting?

Thanks that is what I thought. I might have been very lucky in that I have found the exact movement (Haller 8 day) on ebay & I have put in a bid for it. As for cutting pinions there is a guy that advertises in the BHI mag. I also found some standard pinions on the "Timesavers" web site. Hoping I win the clock movement.

PS the clock is a vintage wall clock and has had re-bushing done but very poorly and it really needs re-bushing again. It's up to the customer how much they are willing to pay.

PPS for future reference I presume the wheels are friction fitted. 

What fun !!!!
