This beautiful little clock was made by The Arthur Pequegnat Clock Co., Kitchener, Canada. The solid oak case is 9 3/4 inches tall and 8 5/8 inches wide, and the dial has a 4 1/8 inch minute track (outside diameter).
The 8 day time and strike movement has beautifully polished steel plates, and the dial is white enamel with blued steel spade hands.
Job 7636. I polished the pivots and installed 15 bushings. The very thick original strike spring has caused severe mainwheel tooth wear (50% wear on the strike mainwheel teeth, 20% wear on the time mainwheel teeth). I replaced both mainspring with new, thinner ones to reduce future tooth wear. The original mainspring sizes were:
T: 11/16 x 0.0183 inches
S: 11/16 x 0.0198 inches! (way too thick!)
The new mainsprings are:
T: 11/16 x 0.0165 x 96 inches
S: 11/16 x 0.015 x 108 inches
The striking runs for 11 1/2 days on a winding with the new thin mainspring. I closed the pallets and adjusted the depth. This movement is similar to a Seth Thomas No. 89, and may have been modeled after it.
