Guide to Finding Information on this Forum
« on: July 15, 2012, 10:13:18 PM »
Welcome to this fabulous public repository of Telechron/GE clock information.  This Forum primarily focuses on the electronic clocks developed by Telechron and General Electric during the period between 1920 and 1960.  If it wasn't for Henry Warren, the great inventor and founding father of the self starting synchronous motor, the Telechron name would have never come in to existence.

The creator of this forum is Pappy.  He has devoted countless hours to his Telechron webpage and this forum.  Without his dedication and his creation of this public information portal, many of us, including myself, would have never gotten involved in this grand endeavour.  All Telechron/GE collectors owe a debt of gratitude to Pappy's hard work and dedication. (...plus, he pays for everything involved with hosting this site...) 

We are glad you are involved in the appreciation of this remarkable technology developed many years ago.   The volunteer members of this Forum welcome everyone who might be able to add to the great adventure of Telechron/GE clock collecting.

This Forum is packed with information.  Many great and knowledgeable people have contributed to this Forum over the years.  Most of your typical inquiries have already been answered by these "experts" in previous posts.  So, search...

The easiest way to find information on your clock or your concern is the use the "search" window on the upper right-hand location of this screen.

Posts pertaining to a certain clocks have usually been posted in this format... "711 - Telalarm" or "7H141 - Airlux".  If you use the search method, you will likely find numerous links to discussions pertaining to the information you are interested in.

Another handy way to search for information on your clock is the click on "Subject" on the header.  This will sort the forum by subject and the clock model discussions will be generally be sorted by model number.  This can be quite handy when searching for information pertaining to a particular clock model.

Don't ever be afraid to ask for help.  Some of the members may seem to be ornery and gruff, (a lot of these dudes are old!), but don't be put off, we all love these great clocks...
