Making Seth Thomas Clock Parts
In this video William Porter shows his technique for making Seth Thomas Clock parts by cutting a new pinion as well as fabricating other components making up the fast/slow regulator assembly for dial side time regulating on a damaged Seth Thomas clock movement. This Seth Thomas clock was brought to his shop for repair as the owner could not slow the clock down enough without turning the fast/slow regulator assembly all the way to its slowest setting as well as placing lead shot sinkers onto the underside of the pendulum bob. The fast/slow assembly was badly damaged having bent parts and a missing leaf on one of the brass adjusting pinions. In addition, the movement required a complete overhaul. This video covers the more complicated and interesting topic of making these Seth Thomas clock parts.
