Seth Thomas Poise-1 Electric Alarm Clock, Dated 1977

I repaired this Seth Thomas Poise-1 (model SS7-Q) electric alarm clock because of its sentimental value to the owner. I was particularly interested in this clock because I have the earlier version (Poise E 861-000) that my parents received as a wedding gift in 1954. The case is the same, the older version has the […]

I put “banjo” in quotes, as Simon Willard invented and patented the […]

The photo below shows the mainspring barrels when I received the clock: I replaced the following badly worn parts: C1 (chime main […]
