    I rescued this forlorn little Waltham mantel clock during yesterday's shopping spree. It was sitting on the shelf at VOA all week. I kept passing it over even at fifteen dollars because it was missing the pendulum bob and it's key. I took the chance it would run for the seven dollars and fifty cents though. I got the idea to make the "bob" from a large washer I found in the tool shed and a paper clip. Don't laugh it works just fine and started to run instantly and ran all night ! Super loud two note chime on the half and counts the hours. The Asian movements are pretty rugged and reliable. I have two wall clocks that are Chinese. This one is labeled made in Korea. It ran a little fast initially so I lowered it to the end of the paper clip... viola ! Perfect time. When it stops however without a key I can't wind it. The two keys I do have are too big and too small. This of course takes the middle size key which I'll have to buy on Ebay, but another successful rescue ! -Mike-
