  • Bracket Clock

    I have a bracket mantle clock, (over 30 years old) it quit working. Took to a repair shop.
    Over $550 to get a new movement from Germany...
    Since it has sentimental value(a wedding present to my wife)that repair is out of my budget.
    Was wondering if a quartz movement would be a good replacement,and a lot less expensive, would be an alternative? Would this work?
    Thanks for your comments.

    There are some good quarts movement ,with or with out chimes.and I would make sure it isn't an that you don't have to worry about damageing the clocks oridgeal looks.
    I like the chime movemants rhat have a speaker attachment.

      I'd look around more for someone that can repair it. My theory is if it can be made it can be fixed. I hate those guys with the automatic have to have a new one attitude. They usually can tell right away to and I don't understand that. I'm always so soft spoken and subtle.
      Just thought I would chime in even if it was untimely and a bit cuckoo.

        Hi Rob, I also had a very old clock that quit working. I couldn't afford a new movement or the reparation of it at that moment, so I took out all of it and kept it safe in a box...replaced it by a quartz movement and it still works fine.... You could do that too and look around for another repair shop or a person who can fix that clock. If you know the brand of the movement send a mail to Germany yourself....could be a lot cheaper...

          Thanks for your suggestions, I got a hold of a guy from one of the clock parts company.
          Need to send him dimensions,he will try to find a match, in quartz movement.

          I am also looking for a freelancer, who could work without all the overhead of a bigger co.

          Sure do like the clock, it is really nicely built, just did not want to abandon it.
          Thanks again

            The Hegner like some other saws have a sweet spot or not so sweet spot where they may vibrate. I know they need to have a solid footing.
            When we were younger (2005) we used to bring our saws to our club meeting in an old barn with wooden floors. The seasoned scrollers all had Hegners. The rest...

            I assume you are talking about changing the stroke length. Looking at the manual it says you can shorten it for cutting thin wood and or metal. I have never known anyone that did that. We have several Hegner owners in our club. I am not one of them.

            Has anyone replaced the eccentric on the Hegner scroll saw or made any adjustments to this part.
            I bought an used Hegner m22 and it vibrates at about 3/4 speed. Maybe I'm just over thinking this problem, last year I purchased a multi cut 3/25 inch Hegner it is a single speed and it runs like a...
