I have never seen a main spring broken-up as much as this one. What say you all? After receiving wall clock, sounded like a tambourine in the box. When I received the package and after a little shake, I felt more like dancing from the rhythm as opposed to looking forward to a repair job. One thing though, a quick fix. Everything within the clock looks very good. I enjoy buying this madness and repairing them. If I should choose to resale, more money in my pocket.

funny how a broken mainspring can get me thinkin 🙄 , how bout dis, while looking at your mainspring I decided to make a shopkeepers doorbell for the shop. The mainspring can either be bent and hardened again to whatever shape, OR leave a full one coiled, mount a clock bell, chime rods, old keys or whatever will jingle. attach to the door and WHALLA 😯 , what do yah think?

Hey will, need spring pieces? I got’em, pay for shipping and you got’em. LOL…… Or on 2nd thought maybe I’ll make a wind chime out of them…..February 28, 2014 at 7:46 am #55826
Nawww, not STEAMPUNK David. I have been bitten enough by them to deal with them anymore. Another “DARK KNIGHT” on ebay. 😮 Got to be a better web site out there to surf. Know of any? :February 28, 2014 at 2:06 pm #55827chris mabbottParticipant

Ed, that one would be a bugger to solder or rivet back together. Definitely a world record case of overwind overkill 😆June 17, 2014 at 10:31 am #55828
Well…..my wife found a bell for me and here is what I came up with, should alert me when someone walks in.

Ed I have seen several of those mainsprings that were busted up like that or worse in my 30 yrs. I had one break like yours when winding it in my mainspring winder. That is why I wear a face shield and leather gloves when working with them.June 19, 2014 at 2:25 pm #55830tmac1956Participant
