Seller: hugo_zair (1,053) 100%, Location: Penzance, Ships to: Free Local Pickup, Item: 282952388933 On offer is one cast "A" frame chassis for the Synchronome master clock. It came to me in a job lot of other clock parts so I don't know anything of its history. It may have come from College Engineering who used to sell them. Someone has already made a start on the build but it seems unlikely it was ever finished. There are a few issues but nothing that an engineer capable of finishing the build could not easily deal with...They are (refer to RH image) At "A" the casting appears to have been done without the upward projection for the lower latch bearing. This has been "provided" with grey filler of some sort. There is also a filled hole close by. At "B" there must be a casting flaw around the bearing hole for the lower armature beaing so there is some filler there. At "C &D two small filled holes. At "E" looks like a filled in attempt to drill a bearing hole in the wrong place. The chassis has no cracks and seems to be quite true. There are four bearings in the form of short pieces of threaded brass in place. The included bits and pieces include : two armature coils wound in cotton covered wire which will need re-winding I think. A count wheel very nicely made. A gravity arm which deoesn't seem heavy enough. Top bearing plate for the count wheel..The gravity catch which is made from brass. A part complete armature. Inspection before bidding is invited if you are anywhere near Goldsithney, is collection in person. I'm not quoting for carriage because I intend making a wood crate after it's sold.. It will be be quite heavy and discussion about a trustworhy courier would be needed. So there it is..not a perfect casting but the impefections are not serious and when the chassis is painted nothing will be seen. These are no longer available to buy so this is a rare opportunity..There are construction details out there by Frank Hope-Jones on the build and I can suggest where to seek help. It was fully described in the Hope-Jone's book "Electric Clocks and how to make them" Unfortunatly these seem to avaialble on the net at very silly prices.. I paid only £10 for my copy not so long ago..I could do some copies of relevant bits if neccessary...All questioned welcomed.. 4th pic added showing clearly jobs already done.
