Three days and still running
|Seth Thomas Mantle clock|
The gong on the hour and half hour is unremarkable but loud considering the size of the clock. Does it keep good time? So far it is accurate but I don't really expect it to be in the long term, but that is the nature of windup clocks. Want a mechanical clock you can depend on, get a weight driven regulator.
Otherwise I cleaned the clock using Murphy's Oil and applied a little walnut stain using a toothpick to fix a couple of nicks and scratches which are now invisible.I want to brighten up the brass bezel and will pick up some Brasso this weekend.
All in all a great find.
