Seth Thomas Spring Brass Alarm -- How does it work?
I have a Seth Thomas Spring Brass 8-Day Clock with an alarm -- guessing that is what it is anyway. The movement works fine, but the alarm has issues.
When I wind it, it just goes off. I think that the wire holding the striker is too long. I also have no idea how the alarm is set -- I am sure it has something to do with the brass piece behind the hands that has Roman numerals I thru XII on it.
Any help on how long that wire should be, how the alarm works and how to set it would be appreciated.
