Here’s a Sessions schoolhouse or drop octagon clock in an oak case. It has a time-only movement (no striking) The dial is paper on a metal pan. I like the style of the hands.
Repair job 6365. A previous repair shop had installed 3 large, ugly screw-in bushings (note to new clock repairers: don’t use screw-in bushings!). I secured them in place, filed them down to look better, and installed proper bushings – “American System” KWM-sized bushings).
I polished the pivots and installed 7 bushings. The mainspring was broken, I installed a new 3/4 by .0162 by 120 inch mainspring (Timesavers part number 15959). I removed the round brass clickspring and installed a round steel clickspring for reliability.
