Telechron & GE Clocks / Re: Proud Day in Ashland
« Last post by Pat_L on Today at 07:40:53 AM »
Jon,
Thanks for posting this.  Did you make your in-person visit to Ashland?  If you did, what else did you see?  Did you go to the Historical Society?  Did you see HEW's house or the red barn?

Telechron & GE Clocks / Re: 7H182 Twinkle
« Last post by dudlydoo on June 26, 2017, 05:13:24 PM »
I finally have a nice 7H182 Twinkle.  I won an auction last week: ebay link, and the clock arrived yesterday.  It was in mostly good condition, but there were blemishes on the bezel and metal foot.  These parts, as well as the second hand, were painted gold, so I gave them a coating of gold paint.  The dial had an ugly green splotch next to the '10', so i replaced it with the dial from the junk Twinkle that I bought a few years ago.  This clock has a classic early 1950s look to it.

  I have the later model of this clock. It was the same outside, but inside had a cream filling. The name was changed slightly also.
Its now called the Twinkie. ^@`

Here is the listing: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Vintage-Haydon-United-Telechron-H-5-General-Time-Clock-Motors-Rotors-Coils/112456638843

"Selling some clock parts that came out of a couple old wooden cabinets that were bought - previous owner had a clock repair business."

Not proof of anything however, you may be correct in some kind of instrumentation use; chart recorder, etc...

With an output of one rev per hour, I doubt that it drove a clock with a second hand.  My guess would be that it was used in some sort of time switch.

Saw this in an auction, it's news to me. What was this used in?

I would say you got a pretty good deal on a very desirable clock.  @@*

Flaking paint seems to be an issue with this model likely because the whole case was chromed before being painted and then the paint was applied directly to the chrome without any apparent base coat of primer or something similar. I have a Domestic in ivory and I'm having the same problem with paint flaking off. Haven't decided yet if it's bad enough that I want to strip and repaint it or not.

I just received this: http://www.ebay.com/itm/192216273826 today.  Unfortunately, there are some serious chips in the red paint which are not apparent in the lousy listing pictures, but based on the price that this clock: http://www.ebay.com/itm/112430615413 which was mentioned recently here ($15.50 more), I probably got a reasonable deal.  I have a red paint marker which seems to be a somewhat good color match for touch-up.

Here's your clock, dude...

Unfortunately I don't have a proper hallway to hang it in. It's currently on the wall in my office, lumped in with all my other wall clocks. (And boy, that brochure is COLORFUL!)
