Grandfather Floor Model Clock Westminister Tempus Fugit Made…

Customer Question
Grandfather Floor Model Clock...

Grandfather Floor Model Clock Westminister Tempus Fugit Made By Cosmo Elelectric Japan , I am missing the small chain sprocket that connects the clock mechanism to the counter weights it is off a small shaft on the back bottom of clock about 1/4 in dia. Bill Lewis

Technician's Assistant: I throw away my watch whenever it stops moving. Some people love fixing timepieces. Differences like that make the world go round I guess - maybe that's clockwork too. Is there anything else important you think the Clock Technician should know?

I am missing the small sprocket that connects the clock mechanism to the counter weights by chain , It is off a small shaft on bottom back approx. 1/4 dia. of clock mechanism The only number I can find on clock mechanism is 2872 Any Help ?? Bill Lewis

Hi Bill, My name is ***** ***** it is my pleasure to assist you. I believe this clock is from the 1970's and trying to find parts for this clock might be hard but your best bet is to contact a local clock repair shop so he can see what exactly the part you need and might be able to have what you need at his shop so if you want I can find a clock repair company in your area just let me know your zip code location and by what major cities and I'll find a few in your area. Thanks Mike

Hello Mike
To Answer your question , I live in Nanaimo B.C. Canada . My Zip Code Is V9R 4X1 Phone(###) ###-####. The nearest Big Cities are Vancouver B.C. & Victoria B.C. Nanaimo has a population of about 100,000 Is located on Vancouver Island about 27 miles from city of Vancouver by water and large Ferries. Vancouver is a very large city/ don't know population. Victoria is located on the south end of Vancouver Isle about 90miles from us, also large . As I mentioned the sprocket that is missing connects the clock mechanism to the counterweights by a small chain, would be mounted on a small shaft on the back of clock mechanism . Don't know why someone would have removed it . Maybe to prevent clock from operating , being used . I do not have a zip code for Vancouver as there would be one for every area that would be different .I tried Cosmos Clock Mfg but no response Thanks For Your Time And Trouble . Where are the "stars " so you will be compensated ?
