Anniversary Clock Repair

You helped me restore a priceless family heirloom to perfect condition and this book showed me step by step. I am absolutely thrilled that I was as to do what several reputable clock repair shops were frightened to take on.

These old clocks are beautiful works of mechanical art and engineering. I highly recommend this book to anyone that is willing to take on the task of restoring a piece of history!

For any one interested in the range of day anniversary clocks - this book is a 'Must Have' - it is absolutely essential - not only does it have an extensive section on the technical side of escapements but also lists most if not all of the days ever produced and with this gives essential information on each clock.

Without this book repair and restoration of this type of clock is not possible - For example it lists the specifications on the suspension springs used on each brand of clock and relates this the 'Horolovar' range of suspensions available through the many clock supply houses.

My dad bought my anniversary clock when I was very young. It's about 45 years old and my dad maintained it all those years, accidentally allowing it to run down maybe three times. He gave me the clock as he and my mom downsize in retirement and the pendulum broke free from the suspension spring in transit. The book was shipped quickly and arrived before the expected delivery date.

The book was brand new and appeared to have just come from the publishers. I am an apprentice clocksmith and needed the book to troubleshoot and make repairs to a friends day clock. The technical information in the book was just what I needed.

What other items do customers download after viewing this item? When it's time to repair a day clock, two things usually need to be done. The suspension spring gets replaced and the movement gets cleaned. These two procedures will fix most Anniversary Clocks. Changing the Suspension Springs If you just dug out your Anniversary Clocks from the cellar or attic and have no idea what to check first, the suspension spring is the place to start.

The suspension spring is just a very thin piece of steel running down the back of the clock. Its purpose is to suspend the balls in the air and allow them to slowly rotate back and forth. The only bending this spring can do is twist back and forth with the balls as they rotate.

The spring being bent is the number one cause for most of these clocks not working. They are cheap to replace and it is an easy fix if your the patient type. If your not patient and careful, or there is a lot of chaos going on around you, forget it. This is a VERY delicate process. There are four pieces to a Anniversary Clocks suspension spring including the thin spring itself.

First there is the brass bottom block that the Anniversary Clocks Pendulum balls attach to. Then in the upper middle of the spring there is the fork attachment that whacks the verge back and forth.

The verge is the wire that sticks straight up from the escapement. Then on top there is the top block that the entire suspension spring hooks onto to be suspended in the air. It is common for the fork and the bottom block to become lost because if the spring breaks, then the clock is usually stored somewhere because it is broken, and these small parts manage to disappear. If you need replacement blocks, they are available on the Anniversary Clocks parts page. The suspension spring is usually attached to the clock with a screw or pin through the top block.

After it is disassembled it's time to attach the blocks to the new spring that you cut down to size.

Leave the set screws in place, but still loose on the blocks, insert the new spring just enough into the block so the set screws will grab securely.

It is easiest to do this step on the table laying the spring down flat, it will take a small hole in the table to support the bottom block to lay flat because of its cross pin. Either a small hole in the table will work or a staking block with various hole diameters could be used and would be ideal.

Now with the block ready to be screwed down, hold it with a pair of needle nose pliers to be sure it will not turn and kink the spring. Be sure to get a good solid grip on the block with the pliers, but without gripping so tight the block pops out of them. As you hold steady the block with the needle nose pliers, use your precision screwdriver to tighten up the set screws that secure the block together with the spring end inside. Do this to both sides of the new spring top and bottom block then your ready to put on the fork.

The Hands On 400 Day Clock Repair Guide

The fork only has one set screw and is put on toward the top of the spring. To find out exactly where this spring should go, hold up the suspension to the clock and get an idea on the height it should be put at. It should be able to whack the verge wire back and forth and should be positioned so it's sticking straight out of the spring at a 90 degree angle. Its height will have to be low enough on the verge to keep the clock running, but high enough so the clock will not flutter.

Fluttering is the term used to describe the clock running miles an hour even with the balls hung and is the result of having the fork set to low. After determining the approximate place where the fork should be on the spring your ready to tighten up the set screw that grabs on, not really tight however because it will most likely have to be adjusted again later.

Best to use the pliers again to hold it secure while tightening. Putting the Clock in beat To see if a Anniversary Clocks is in beat, turn the clock so you are looking at the back of the clock with the dome off. Get yourself into a position so you can see the escapement action and see the balls go back and forth at once.The Horolovar day clock repair guide , Horolovar Company.
