General Electric 7H106K Illuminated Alarm Clock restoration
« on: December 24, 2019, 04:02:21 PM »
I completed restoration of a General Electric 7H106K Illuminated Alarm Clock.  The back of the dial cleaned up nicely with melamine and water but the front yellowing could not be removed (seems to be UV / sunlight related damage).

Cool clock. The yellowing can be reversed by bleaching. There are several different methods to do that. Search for bleach, peroxide or retrobrite to see a few.

Good looking clock  It's nice how such clocks can be attractive and useful.  Today it seems to be only about what's on the face.
