Telechron & GE Clocks / Re: 4H55 Statesman

Part of the reason I posted the link was to explain with context that in in drilling the hole to flush and oil the unit, that this was a method I had also used in the past to clean sealed potentiometers and similar controls.  I use only snarp, as new drills and a Dremel as it is capable of a high speed, and will usually give depth control and a clean chip free hole.  It may not be the best means for someone who has not done this much to try as their first refurb.

I cleaned and reassembled the clock.  I found a small screw which works for now, even though it is not the proper type.  This clock is in remarkable condition.

Thank you for the information.  I will probably have to order some screws online.  I see that albanycountyfasteners.com has such screws, but they want $6.50 to ship $1.75 worth of screws.  I will probably start working on this clock in the next couple of days.  I am accumulating a host of Hostesses and New Hostesses.

Usually number 3 screws are 3-48.  The time set is 3-48 left hand thread.  On some of the alarm clocks the alarm set might be 3-48 right hand which you might try if you have one handy.

Found This on Ebay a couple of weeks ago.  cleaned the oil residue from the face and cleaned up the mechanism.  Ran it for a week and it continued with some noise, so removed the rotor and tinned a spot on the housing and drilled a 1/16" hole in it and flushed it out with some naptha and drained and dried it out.  injected some Mobil 1 and cleaned around the hole and soldered a cover of brass shim stock.  Reassembled and the clock runs silently now.

There was actually a replacement forum going for a while: https://vintageelectricclocks.createaforum.com

Wasn't sure if this one would come back  /,\

I just checked it out, saw some familiar names.

Same here! I was starting to go through some SERIOUS withdrawal symptoms!

Glad it's back! :)
