Seth Thomas Sharon Echo-S Electric Steeple Clock

December 4, 2012 | By | 2 Replies More

This cute little steeple clock is 11 1/16 inch tall and 6 1/2 inches wide, and was probably made in the 1950s. It strikes the hour and half-hour on a small brass bell.

The motor in this clock is a replacement made within the last 10 – 15 years or so. The old motor quit turning, so a new one was installed. The clock movement was not cleaned at the same time, so the grit and dried oil kept causing wear. When I received the clock for repair, one pivot was completely worn away and another was worn almost all the way through.

See more photos.

The 2 bad pivots were replaced, other pivots polished, and bushings installed. Now the clock runs like new.

This clock movement has a typical feature of Seth Thomas electric clocks – the striking is driven by a small mainspring that the motor winds.

Repair job 5887. 15 bushings, repivot 2 arbors, tighten loose pinion wires.

    If you e-mail me a photo of the clock, I’ll see if I know what key it needs.

    I inherited this clock from my mom but it doesn’t have the key to wind it. Where can I get a replacement, and what kind of key do I need?
    Thanks, in advance, for any information you can provide.
    Sincerely,
    Nancy Miller
