Telechron mantel clock

Recommended Posts

It's running but there is a part you can see in the photos that is no longer attached.  I don't know what it is.  I don't want the clock so if anyone wants a free clock it's there's.

Hi.  Ive worked on one of these buggers before.  Unsure what the unattached part is by the foto.  However this is most probably built like the one i worked on.  The time train is run by the electric rotor (these can be rebuilt.  I send them to a dude who only does this).  The strike train is powered by a continuous wind mainspring, like on an automatic watch.  There is no hook on the inside of the mainspring barrel.  It gets enuf tension and slips around on the inside of the barrel.  The rotor running the time side winds the spring thru auxillary gears.

The main reason these fail to operate is the rotor needs overhauling.  Once that is done, proceed just like its a simple clock movement
