Telechron & GE Clocks / Re: sad . GE begins to disappear

It is sad, but for years now, any consumer product one would see on the shelves for sale that is branded GE has not been made by GE.

Telechron & GE Clocks / 3H184 Concord

ebay link

This clock arrived yesterday.  It was a $5.50 BIN OBO.  I offered $4, and the seller accepted several hours later.  The $13.35 shipping was high given that the clock weighed about 2 lbs and it was stuffed into a tiny box with a small piece of bubble wrap a few small pieces of crumbled newspaper.  Even though this is a 1950s model, it has a 1930s style movement.  The case is solid mahogany.  There are some blemishes and rough spots, but I gave it the usual Restor-A-Finish treatment followed by lemon oil, so it looks mostly presentable.  The finial came from a junk Knickerbocker.  I have seen pictures of this model with about four different styles of finials/rings on the top, but this drawing: https://clockhistory.com/0/document-3982-1.html shows what looks like a Knickerbocker type finial, and I had one, so I used it.  The hole in the top of the case has a much larger diameter than the finial's screw, so I improvised a scheme to hold it in place.

One trick I have successfully used several times is heating the knob with a soldering iron.  The heat will make the brass expand and also possibly melt whatever substance is sticking the knob to the stem.  The two keys to making this work are grabbing the knob and turning it before it cools too much and NOT touching the metal parts with your finger while they are still hot.

A good penetrant if you have any around the house is peppermint oil.  Automatic transmission fluid also penetrates.  make sure you have a good set of pliers on the shaft.  I hav had them require one on the shaft and one on the knob.
