    Hey guys and gals, I have a Ansonia desk clock that I have a simple question for. when taking it apart the pieces on the minute arbor slid right off. after a thorough going thru and put back together, the hands are not moving, I assumed the pressure from this sandwiched between the plates would put enough friction on these parts to make it work but I am now thinking I have to press fit the end brass collet tight enough to have the friction needed. Am I right about that? have a great day, William,
    here is a couple of photos

    He William, That looks a lot like the small movement I was asking you about a while back to help identify. It has the same spring loaded arbor. Could the spring be set and not applying enough pressure when the plates are back together?Mahlon

    After posting I remembered that the wheel on mine was friction fit, because I had trouble with the clock striking 7-10 min. before the hour. I twisted the wheel on the arbor back and tightened it on the arbor. and it solved the problem. Mahlon
