Telechron & GE Clocks / Forum Notice
« Last post by Pappy on September 18, 2020, 05:04:30 PM »
Hi,
This is NOT to pick on anyone in particular.

Parts requests should be made in the Want List thread.  I know--no one goes in the want list thread.  Well, DO go there.  Post your want list there.  Please do not make a new thread every time you need a part.   (Don't apologize, it's OK.)

Also, the website is almost FULL.  I only get so much storage and we're nearly full.  Most of the storage is taken up by forum attachments (mostly by wonderful scanned brochures and stuff!).  I'm going to have to scrub some stuff.  If you haven't already, download all the catalogs and brochures and large files you want from the Forum.

Thanks for being part of the Telechron forum!   /,\

Left one probably is left hand thread.  Threading will usually be opposite of embossed arrow on case.

Telechron & GE Clocks / Need knurled Knob for 7H85
« Last post by TIME2TIME on September 18, 2020, 09:50:42 AM »
Hi, I'm missing the smaller of the two knurled knobs that screw onto the rear of the 7H85 (maybe used on other models too).  See image.
If anyone has a spare they're willing to part with please let me know.

if you don't have the small one I could get by with another large one.


Also, if I can't find one I was considering making one.  A 2-56 machine screw threads into the knob I have , but a 2-56 nut doesn't screw onto the clock shaft...   Anyone know what thread is used here?


thanks

Sweet Telart Bill! Yeah, I know how to make that base. I have a Telart but it has a wooden base. I'll have to wait until I have an original base to cast one.

3d printer would be cool.

A possible substitute would be to make a silicon mold of a base and pour a black colored acrylic slab.  I do not have experience doing this but I do believe there is at least one person in this group with model fabrication.

Beautiful job!  @@*

Now if we can find someone with a 3D printer who can fabricate the bases, because I need one for mine to replace the oversized wooden one it came with.  |-&

This one I am keeping.  It had the absolutely worst gunked up case I ever saw.  Took a lot of buffing, polishing, steel wooling etc to get it to this point. The F rotor with the integral standoffs was totally dead so I opened it up.  Found the lube had turned into a petrified green mass, the rotor unmovable.  15 minutes in 99% isopropanol, ultrasonic bath and the green was dissolved.  The rotor was freed.  Put synthetic motor oil in it, epoxied back together and not only does it work, it is almost dead silent.  May not be as good of a job as what Henny would do but it good enough for me.

Thanks.
Wanted to put the slight curve across the width of the hand but did not have anything to act as a press mold. So the hands are flat, like on the B rotor clocks.  And the Reveres. The Tix solder is perfect for this fabrication.  Thanks for the link to that material.  In fact I just bought another batch of the solder.
