Telechron & GE Clocks / Re: 7H86 - Warburton

I monitor "guests" perusing this thread and note that it gets hit fairly often.  It is a good description of my novice encounter of this case material.  Go back to the beginning and review this discussion. (...that sounded pretty professional, eh...?)

Somebody won one of these for cheap recently (by outbidding me): www.ebay.com/itm/222916098484.

Telechron & GE Clocks / 1H912 repair
« Last post by Pappy on April 18, 2018, 04:18:35 PM »
Not much to say.  My friend had this beauty in his garage/man cave for years.  The rotor was squealing.  Lucky for them, he knew me.  The back plate on this one is aluminum I think.  Actually, the front plate (the dial) is aluminum too.   Neither one is steel anyway.  I think this means it wasn't a wartime clock because steel was the replacement metal of choice during the War (think pennies).  Anyhow, is that dial nice or what?




My big contribution was rebuilding the back nail slot with JB Weld so he could hang it up again.  I did a nice job--trust me.

Vintage Appliances / Re: Magnavox 1ST625 Stereo Console

after operating the unit for awhile, The Original receiver's  (one of 3 modular assemblies that make up the stereo) FM band drifted and could not be aligned back into spec.  To this end, I found a likely replacement unit on Ebay.  It was substantially off frequency as well, but it was able to be brought back into line.  I intend to restore the other receiver to proper operation.  The audio amplifier is working great though.  I was told that digital audio would sound weak on the console, but it performs better with it than my component stereo.  It has been worth the time and effort it has cost.

Here is a picture of the finished project. That is not a smudge on the face, just a reflection.  My wife did the following to get the Textileather in to decent shape.

1) She coated the surface with a leather furniture restorer.  She told me that the Textileather is more like paper, so she applied only a light amount, twice.  The idea was to soften the material as much as possible, before gluing it down.  The restorer had only a limited effect, as this isn't real leather, but it did get the surface looking better, and a little more pliable. She then covered the clock body with wax paper to keep dust from sticking to it while it dried.

2) She glued down the peeling pieces with rubber cement, which was the most non caustic glue she could think of.

It came out pretty well, and I am hoping it holds up for a while.

Unique and stylish, I like it!!  This was a very expensive clock even in it's time.  More than twice the cost of the Telechron Model 431 Modernique.

Good work C/U.
It's a great and very rare clock.  Are you a collector of Revere clocks?
I'm glad that it went to a good home.
