SOURCE: I just purchased a Westwood

That first number sequence is the key: UW 03038 (I think you may have typed an extra digit...)

UW is the identifying mark for "Urgos" - a German manufacturer of high-quality clock movements,
or in layman's terms - the part that houses all the gearing, etc. between its brass plates.

The dial, hands, pendulum, weights, chime, etc. are each separate components that attach to
the "movement."

The Urgos indicia (UW) is followed by a five-digit "model number" for that specific movement.
You can use this information to track down various Urgos parts on the ClockWorks website.

Lastly - a good site for general information/research: Antique Grandfather Clock.

Good luck, and I hope this helps!

My Howard Miller Grandfather floor clock 610-808 chimes constantly


Hello Shirley Haas,

Leave the weight fully extended (stop the clock)
and start checking your local area for clock-smith
that make house calls (run on hour strikes are much more common... but whatever you say... "CHIMES" the cause
is likely the same: Little or no maintenance).

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Howard-Miller-Grandfather-Clock-Movement-with-Dial-Model-610-309-serviced-/282379781809?hash=item41bf2586b1:g:UO4AAOSwMmBVjdo-

These clocks need to be lubed and serviced and it is work
best left to the serious professionals.

You can probably get away with another 35 years...

Remember we have time on our side...

As for me...
I bought a junk clock to EXAMINE & fix (did)
I purchased synthetic clock oil (LIBERTY noted below)
and lubed ALL the obvious spots...
wiping excess away with Q-Tips.

Then I assaulted my own RIDGEWAY...
Got it running & regulated (was NOT my problem)...
My pendulum only needed to be centered correctly
(oh well).

I could NOT pull up YOUR 610-808 movement... but on the movements I have done you can see the hour strikes & the lever that triggers that motion (HOURS are each a spike on
the gear wheel... from one (^), 2 (^^) to 12 (^^^^^^^^^^^^)
progressively (pretty obvious if you are looking).

Go there... look... lube..!! Be gentle... VERY GENTLE...
or better ... call in a QUALIFIED SERVICE PERSON.

Where can I get information and pendulum for Ridgeway spring driven clock serial number 374221?


You need to determine what type of movement it is first. Ridgeway used movements from Hermle and other manufacturers. Once you have identified the movement we can sort out the pendulum. The following article will show you how to determine the pendulum length: How To Determine Clocks Pendulum Length

It wont chime on the hour


Basic assumption... The chimes know what time it is...!!

FORCE NOTHING...!!

From page 10 of owners manual below (MINUTES):

EXAMPLE: Clock chimes at 1:10 but should chime at 1:15.

Step 1: When clock chimes at 1:10 stop the pendulum and record the time of 1:10.

Step 2: Carefully remove the small nut....

(Hour procedure is on the SAME PAGE (10).
