    latest project is this gilded monstrosity nice BIG clock,..face is nearly a foot across,..have absolutely no knowledge on the maker just a cool rummage sale find,..pays to go early,.hopeful someone can give me some pointers on it,..currently isnt running but seems to all be there,..gotta take the movement out n clean it out,..one of the lower finials is loose but its all there,..has a bell so when running rings the hours n the half,..pendulum is visible under the face thru the space below,..seems to be wound tight so gotta clan n oil it up,..thanks for looking im off to google the maker n see if i found a good one or not
    ok found out its Swedish
    WOOHOO got it running,..easy fix a lil nanolube and adjusting the angle o the escapement,..was tweaked cause was packed with the pendulum attached,.now just gotta regulate it,..n decide whether to keep it,..think im gonna try n trade it for a good pocket watch somewhere,..its just a lil toooo flashy for my joint,.big damn impressive clock anyhow
    5 day update,..running rock solid gonna let it run till it stops to see how the spring is,..its either an 8 day or 14 day ,..cant tell by looking at it and the internet is vague on it,..im betting if it was 14 it runs about 12 till it stops,..it was wound tight when i started it up ,..and was probably that way for YEARS stored away,..so may have lost some spring in the garage loloh,..looses about 5 min a day,..at the end of the run ill adjust it ,..how much do you all think it will take?pendulum has the normal screw thing at the bottom but hard to get at,.any guesses what 5 min a day is

      woohoo went to a local antique mall near by n a seller there is a clock junkie ,..and has a half size not nearly as elaborate one for 600 bucks so im trying to whangle a deal o some kind with him,..hopefully maybe a cool carriage clock or some nice ships bell clock,...he probably looks at this site so im giving it all away but better to be up front ,..maybe it will help the deal lol
