Removing Improper Bushings from a Seth Thomas 89D Clock Movement

In clocks, the pivots (the ends of the gear shafts) rotate in holes in the brass front plate and back plate of the movement. After years of use, these “pivot holes” wear to an oblong shape.

The Ansonia 5-Pillar Shelf Clock Movement, ca. 1885

1950’s Regula Cuckoo Clock Movement

I just overhauled a 1950’s cuckoo clock with a Regula 8 day movement.This older movement is different from the modern one, so I am illustrating it here. This movement needed to have the pivots polished and bushings installed. The pivots were not too badly worn, but some appeared to not have been well polished when […]
