Can't keep the wood burning in stove. How does the buck stove take in air?
To burn properly, it needs proper combustion air and proper draft. Draft is effected by the size and height of the flue the appliance is connected to and by how much combustion air is available. The appliance flue connection should not be reduced to fit a smaller chimney size. That is, an 8" flue should not have an 8 x 6 reducer to vent it into a 6" chimney.
The wood you are burning could contribute to a poorly burning fire. To burn properly, the wood needs to have been "seasoned" for a minimum of 1 year or close to it. Two years is even better. "Green"
or freshly cut wood contains an unbelieveable amount of moisture in it and a tremendous amount of the heat is wasted just "preheating" the wood to the temperature that causes it to release gasses for ignition.
I don't know the style or model of your Buck, but all wood burning appliances should have combustion air dampers of either a sliding design, rotating round design or hinged design with handle at the bottom front of the firebox. I'm sure there are some fancy new designs that have air piped in from outside the structure.
Every wood fired stove, fireplace or furnace has its own idiosyncrasies and its up to the user to determine what's required for making it operate as designed.
Sterling & Noble wall clock minute hand has fallen off. How can I put it back on?
Unless the clock is an older traditional 'clockwork' mechanism most clocks have a sealed unit as a mechanism so you shouldn't damage anything.
Some clocks can be dismantled from the back, usually with small screws or spring clips. You remove the clock face and mechanism as One piece. Once removed, the hands are usually a push fit so should pull out. The Second hand, then minute hand and the hour hand nearest the clock face.
If you need to replace the mechanism they are held on with a small nut on the face of the clock. These mechanisms are usually quite cheap to buy and easy to fit.

The singing bird clock not working right.
Question edited to what I think you meant to say :>D
Change the battery for a new one. check that the hands of the clock have have enough clearance to pass each other. It sounds like they are clashing at 1:05. Press the hour hand on and then the minute hand. If they are metal, you can bend them a fraction. If it still does it, send it back.
