    I have never had a register with a clock before. I am picking up my first one this weekend. I have no idea if it works and it probably doesnt but I will send it to colonial for an estimate as one poster suggested. My question is how the clock functions or what exactly is supposed to happen with it as far as an employee goes. Also i see that most clocks have a little turn knob which mine does not have. What is the purpose of this knob and is anyone making replacement parts like that? I assume that the register or clock gets locked up in a way where it cant be messed with by an employee. is that true?

    Look on my web page www.brasscashregister.net . Scan down to the clock section & select it. Then scan down to a booklet on clocks. Read & print it.

    I have a few reproduction clock knobs, they are brass and the color is slightly different. They also do NOT have the arrow etched, but they are better than having an empty hole. Contact me for price.

    How are you fastening the retainer onto the end of the reset stem (epoxy) ?

    The clock stop button is 3 parts. The knob, a torsion spring with a bent tail on both ends & the stop plate. The torsion spring has a tail that goes In a hole in the clock case. The other end has a tail that goes through around the edge of the stop plate. Holding the spring & stop in place inside the housing, you slide the shaft of the knob in from the top of the clock housing until the cut down end of the shaft goes in the stop plate. It is then riveted onto the shaft of the knob. Use a brass square to hold the knob in place & a center punch on the end of the shaft. Don't get carried away or it will bind the shaft up. Try the knob to see if it will spring back freely. Don't use epoxy.
    After you wind & set the clock you hold the little ball on the clock toward the middle & the stop plate should spring under the ball arm & hold it letting the clock run. When you closed at night, the last thing that you do is to turn the knob which moves the stop plate out of the way of the ball arm which is spring actioned so that the other end of it gets into the teeth of the gear stopping the clock showing what time you left.

    Can you show a picture? I dont know what the torsion spring that you mentioned is. The replacement I bought is just a turn knob on a shaft and a plate. I have not installed it yet because my clock mechanism is at the shop.
