3F55 Newberry
« on: July 07, 2019, 02:01:15 PM »
A week ago, I bought a slightly tired looking 3F55 Newberry from a guy who had a few bins of junk clocks for sale for $1 each.  The Newberry was not in the bins, and he wanted $30 for it.  The case was dirty and scratched, so I used mahogany Restor-A-Finish, lemon oil, and furniture polish on it.  The dial was slightly dirty but in great condition.  There was an H-rotor in it with no spreader posts, but I took the good F-rotor from a junk 4F65 which was part of the lot.  I stripped the worn bezels and re-lacquered them.  The clock came out nice.  This model has probably the only dial I have seen which is not flat.  The ring with the numbers is raised.
