When was the last time it was serviced? It probably needs a good cleaning and/or oiling.

MAIN HANDS WILL NOT TURN.2ND HAND TICKS OK


Maybe the sound is not preferred and you will not hear the sound is suggest the problem because the main hand give the klik to activate the sound Probably there are two springs to wind the clock now its normally the clock will stop on some time if one winding spring become to wide in and the spring cannot no more wider stretched.
ALWAYS USE both winding springs,
can remove better the sound producing element then only use one spring on aclock if thats the problem if other problem then maybe a gear or axle is worn but almost unimaginable.

How is that pully with cord connectrd or replaced


Not sure what machine you have it goes around a spring loaded pulley in the back, you have to wind up the spring the right direction if the spring is not broken, once wound up usually the cord ither made of sishing line or catgut has a not in it that slips in the whole in a spring... somewhat tough job, you have to wind up so many turns not over tight and not to loos to pull the carriage along..

Have old Seth Thomas Metronome ,only key turn about 1/4 turn.Is that normal for vintage one.


It is not normal. Metronome should wind almost the same as a clock. The cause for this 1/4 turn of a winder is that the driving spring do not unwind completely. That means there are mechanical or oiling issues. Show your metronome to any clock repairer (not the watch repairer) and he/she should be able to fix that.

I have an early 1900 clock that I have to wind. I have noticed my clock stops frequently. I go to wind it and it is tight to wind so instead of over winding I tip the clock to start the ticking and the...


You can not unwind the clock yourself, because this requires proper clock makers tools and skills as well. Clock is stopping because it has not been serviced for a long time and the oil in clock has collected dust particles and getting sticky. This does not let the spring unwind freely and is a problem for all cogs and moving parts. Find your nearest clock repair shgop and ask for cleaning, oiling and adjusting. BE AWARE: If you are gonna try to unwind it yourself, you will damage the clock's movement, but most important - you can even brake or loose your fingers, as the clock spring is under unbelievable tension and once released, it uncoils lightning fast and is sharp as a razor.

Chimes do not chime due to winding too tight. Can this be corrected?


You need to remove the movement and use a tool to manually unwind the chime spring. This can be dangerous and can break you wrist, so you might consider having a clock repairman perform this maneuver. Then wind the spring about 1/2 way. If the chimes still do not operate, I suggest a good clock repairman.

Bakelite antique mantle clock just bought, but no instructions of how to get it going. Ive got the key and pendulum but dont know how to set it up. Can you help?


First you have to wind up your clock using the key supplied. The pendulum suspension spring should start to swing quite fast. Stop it swinging with your fingers and hook up the pendulum. When done, push the pendulum to whatever side and release it to start the swing - the clock should start ticking in normal order. If there is no special bar on the back of clock movement for adjusting hands, then hands must be adjusted from the dial side by moving minute hand clockwise. Move the minute hand with your finger clockwise to the desired time, at the same time do not catch hour hand, as this may end up with the incorrect time displayed. Rate me, plz.

Underwood no. 5 typewriter doesn't advance when hit keys


the cord is shaped much like a shoe lace, and these make great replacements, a spare clip can be fashioned out of a paper clip, it's not a precision part. the spring if broken can be replaced with any clock style spring, i bought a wind up kitchen timer at the dollar store (same for the shoe lace) and took the spring from that. for $2.14, got mine working good as new

Believe chime springs have been over wound


The idea of "overwinding" is probably the most common myth in clockmaking. A clock cannot be wound too tight, unless it is wound so hard that the mainspring breaks, in which case the spring becomes completely unwound and will not wind up again. What has actually happened is that the clock is fully wound, but does not unwind because it is not running for some other reason. Letting down the mainspring would have no benefit.
You're correct that the clock was made in 1974. This is far beyond the expected lifespan of the clock. It is possible that lubrication by a qualified clock repairer could get the clock running again, but considering its age, it may be more likely that the movement is worn out, dirty or corroded and needs replacement.
The three keys should be wound all the way, as far as they will go, once a week. This clock should be self-starting when wound, so the fact that it has been sitting wound without running for years indicates a previous problem that prevented the clock from starting and running the mainspring down on its own.
