I recently purchased this Jefferson Golden Hour clock from a consignment shop in Bellevue, WA. It is dated March 18, 1958. The hour hand gear assembly did not move freely on the shaft but the motor worked and the minute hand did rotate. I took apart the hour hand assembly and replaced the fiber washers with mylar washers .0145" thick. I lubricated the hour hand shaft and gears with silicone lube. I also replaced the cracked power cord and plug. Now it runs great and keeps perfect time. I don't think it was used much because the gears are in pretty good condition.
