  1. (On NAWCC i mean)
  2. Wow. Thanks for that response Bruce, I think I will post this exact item for more intricate advice as to what I should do. Thanks a lot, Gage.
  3. Great, thanks a lot Bruce.
  4. (Same as on here)
  5. My screen name is Gage_robertson_collector
  6. Ok Bruce I managed to create an account. What should I do next?
  7. Beutifal clock.
  8. Amazing, great story. Its such a shame that so much of that history was lost to the dumpster. Kudos to you for picking through and saving what you could.
  9. Don't know much about them either but cool lamp! Good for camping with.
  10. Sure thing @Bruce99!
  11. Thank you very much @watchsearcher! The workshop and the tools you see belong to my dad, but we both work hard to make sure everything is clean and organized!
  12. @blunderbuss2 The clock was made in Forrestville, Connecticut.
  13. There are no other holes where the movement is mounted, although there may appear to be some because I had attempted to shift the movement because the winding points were to difficult to access with t...
  14. Thanks for the help bruce, I appreciate it. One thing I will note in addition is after taking the movement out of the case, I could notice that it is in fact a Welch movement
  15. Yes if only @watchsearcher, to answer your question, my dad was an arts major in college and those were some of his pottery pieces.
  16. See what I mean bruce? The speed adjuster is on the top but not the middle. Also, are you sure that the clock would have been made in 1900? I though production was stopped around there because of ongo...
  17. I will make another post and I will include more detail there as to the dimensions, e.t.c. Of the clock.
  18. Hey bruce, when i say hood i mean the face of the clock where the numbers are. The entire section that includes the glass door that opens and the brass trim around the outer edge.
  19. Of course i will share the afters. Thank you for your advice. My main goal for this project was to make the clock look Beautiful while also making it so that it can stay in the family for generations....
  20. I think if i decide to go down the linseed oil route I will most likely apply the finish with a brush.
  21. Just marked it solved! Thanks for letting me know!
  22. Yes if only, thanks bruce
  23. Hey bruce! Thanks for the help! I really appreciate the help. I just wanted to let you know since posting this i dissembled and took the workings out of the clock, after i learned a serial number on t...
  24. Thank you. Indeed it is.
  25. Thanks for the advice!
  26. Thanks! My dad hand-built those workbenches you see in the background. I might post some photos of his basement and tools too!
  27. Thanks, its my dads. No i am not planning on respraying it, i was going to originally because we have a really nice finish sprayer but i think it will look 100 times nicer with a hand rubbed finish.
  28. That is my grandmothers house. I will have to ask her about the fish. Yes I'm realizing now that the patina that was on the clock was pretty cool, but hopefully i can make it worth while and it will l...
  29. I think it may possibly be mahogany but I'm not totally sure. It has a slight red tint to it and the rings are defiantly suggestive of old growth material.
  30. @kwqd Great idea! Im not sure if i will be able to make them but i might be able to find some 1/24 scale figurines online to use.
  31. @fortapache yes, that is a Marx noble night. I am planning to upload a post on that soon.
  32. Thats a shame. Good luck with cleaning it! Im not sure what i will do about the smell in mine but i was considering just putting a piece of a little tree air freshener in there to get rid of the smell.
  33. I didn’t even think of that! Thanks for the idea!
  34. Thank you. Its not perfect, but I tried my best on it!
  35. Very cool!
  36. @Big-Zingo Its super fun to clean them up, the only issue is,you have to be very careful about how you go about doing it. There are so many things on the car that you could easily break off. My sugges...
  37. I see this type of thing on real cars too, but usually only racing cars. Especially with the removable hood, you can tell that this car was really designed to be lightweight, and fast on the racetrack.
  38. Thanks.
  39. Yes it does. I really do enjoy the 50’s era, especially when it comes to luxury American automobiles.
  40. Love the model! I will be posting one of my own 57 Chevy models soon, feel free to take a look!
  41. Yes. This car is important however, due to the fact that it was able to capture the style of a certain time period into the corvette. And with all the other ones I've uploaded it kind of gives you an ...
  42. Yes I totally agree! You can see that in the 86’ model year especially which i just uploaded. But at the time, that stuff seemed to be all the rage!
  43. Cool! I love them too. There are a lot more to come. I think my family member loved them too. He had so many of them!
  44. What kind of a roof did the 53 model year corvette have? I find it interesting that franklin mint wouldn’t make a vinyl top for the 53, but they did for the 55.
  45. For sure
  46. Yes this is definitely one of my favorites.
  47. Thanks! Im not planning on selling it as it is a beautiful model but i’am nonetheless curious
  48. Thanks you. It has been in my family since new and we have to more which I will post in the future
  49. Thank you for your reply. When we had the clock fixed the repairs-men said it Was made around that time. I do know that it was made in Forestville, Connecticut which is near where I live, so it has mo...
