      I bought my first clock to work on. We were walking by an antique store and told my wife lets just walk in and check it out. They had a lot of nice old clocks in there that were working. I just happened to ask the owner if they had a clock that didn’t work and they showed me this one. It is a 1910 Gilbert. She sold it to me for $20.00. It is missing the rod, pendulum and key, but I figured I can find those.

      The case and dial are in great shape. The glass has no scratches in it. But you can tell it has sat a long time. It is full of dirt and grime. Even some spider webs.

      I have been watching the clock videos and am anxious to get started taking it apart. I have already taken the movement out of the case. And added some oil to some places and letting it sit. Thinking it might help pulling it apart.

        You got a great deal on that clock Sisu!
        That’s a very good clock movement to begin with. Good choice and have fun.

          Great find and price. Study the video’s carefully especially about mainsprings before disassembly.
