    I had a guy send me an e-mail recently wanting to sell me a clock. It is the twist in without a ring & it is nickel. He said that his family repairs these occasionally & he has had this one for many years but decided to sell it. I bought it & it indeed works. I asked if he wanted me to give out his name to club members as a source of repairs. He said OK.

    With the clocks that tick for a few seconds and then stop, I have had good luck with just lubercating them well and cleaning. Most of the time they will start working correctly.

    I found the clock ring I needed. Unfortunately it had nickel on it and I had to bead blast it. What I am trying to do is match the patina on a old red brass machine that time has made darker. Any idea's ?
