A New Mainspring for Seth Thomas No. 89 and Other American Clock Movements

Merritt’s Antiques offers the MS310 mainspring, designed for the Seth Thomas No. 89 movement.

The MS310 is specified as 3/4 inch wide by 0.016 inch thick by 108 inches long. Besides the Seth Thomas No. 89 movement, it is good for many other antique American movements that originally had a .0018 or .0017 inch thick mainspring.

Note: Some examples of MS310 spring are stronger than I would like, the Timesavers 15159 may be a better choice if you can get the copper rivet type. See New Batch of Timesavers 15959 Clock Mainsprings for more information.
