Thought I would share a project case I bought off ebay a few weeks ago,restored with an original Ingraham movement.As most of us I forgot to take my own before pics but I was able to get the ebay ones,here are the links to the before photos:
I enjoy seeing everyone's projects,let's keep them coming in. Kent
Great looking store advertising clock. Its terrific to see a clock brought back to its original glory. I love the lower advertising tablet.
Hi Kent, nice job on the clock.I did not realize orange crush was that old of a soft drink.
Sure is a nice one to put up on the wall.
Thanks for sharing.
How cool is that! Were the glass and dial with the original clock or from another?
Thanks to all for the comments,now that everyone has seen the finished product I will confess the restored parts of the clock.First the two side pieces of the top crest were formed by hand to match the orignal front(not sure what the crack looking line is in the pic but it is not there),the complete door was made,the glass are repros from Timesavers.The dial is a repro as well, that was aged to look old.The movement is an original Ingraham that matched the backboard holes perfect,(also bought off e-bay) it was missing the escapement etc.and had several pivots broke off,the hand shaft and winding arbor were about a half inch to long.Movement was disassembled repivoted as needed, the rest trued and polished,rebushed,new spring,turned a new escape shaft and added the correct escape wheel and pinion leaves for the drop I needed,and finally cut down the winding arbor and hand shaft to correct length.I had another original clock to copy all the parts which made this one an easy one to do.I find it quite rewarding to save and old piece for future enjoyment.Lets see some more of everyones projects.Kent
