Hey Guys, here is a neat clock I have just finished working on, It is a International Time Recording Co. regulator, possible date of 1931 (a division of IBM) regulator. It appears it hasnt been worked on since 1969, sure was gummed up enough to have been that long. Brought in for a movement service and a new suspension spring as all the electrical is working o.k. Notice how the 2 weight cables are wound up on a single drum, this automatically winds itself. No chimes. Seems to be ticking away just fine now…[attachment=2:1ok1n7rw]DSCN6723_01.JPG[/attachment:1ok1n7rw][attachment=1:1ok1n7rw]DSCN6727_01.JPG[/attachment:1ok1n7rw][attachment=0:1ok1n7rw]DSCN6728_01.JPG[/attachment:1ok1n7rw]

It looks like IBM made some great clocks. The joke for IBM computers was that their acrnoym IBM stood “It Be Messed-up” ;)
