Hello, I have received a Seth Thomas triple decker clock in for repair, I have not as of yet dealt with replacing the cord for the weights, is there a specific type of cord that should be used???? I would like this as close to original, does anyone know what would have been used originally??? thanks everyone, have a fabulous day, William
I bought some “American Clock Chord” from Meadows and Passmore but it was two thick, I unwound the platts and got three lengths for the price of 1! Wherever you find it just check the diameter.
Hey Paul, this is one of those clocks that has the 6+ pound weights on each side and the cord runs up from the works and over a small wooden wheel and down the side of the case, supposedly these clocks were popular before the ability to manufacture mainsprings, mid 1800’s. at this age I wonder if a heavy gut was used???? Bob do you remember what was available that you used back then? William
