Late soft plastic Light Blue 500 set 10 7 59. Very strange fading on this. Cords and dial bezel are still perfect as is the cap under the lift, the rest is now a greenish blue. All dates 10/6, 10/7 or 10/8/59...Doug

That AE stick is a real beauty - you did well there.

I see you're latching onto the Tymeters also.  Do they run? :D

I always loved these clocks. I had one that finally died. I bought these from a clock collector who I had bought phones from in the past. He said they run, I havenít had time or the space to check them out.....Doug

My apologies for any confusion on his post, the AE stick was a keeper for me and the other two phones had already been sold. My bad.....Doug

Clocks from Brimfield

I am on vacation this week and I  have plugged in both clocks. They have been running about 5 hours and are keeping time. Jan found a cracked case one this weekend and it runs silently. These two while not noisy, do make a little noise. I tried the obvious place to oil but it did no good.  It is not a loud noise, but in a quiet room with no music. you hear it. Any ideas or is it just the way it is....thanks....pics will follow tomorrow ....Doug

I've always wanted one, but I'm unfamiliar with their mechanisms.  I belong to another forum that might be of help to you.  There is a member there that has restored one recently.  Here is the forum.  http://www.telechron.net/forager/

Both clocks have been running for over a day and there are no issues. Ivory clock makes a little noise, the Brown is almost silent.

Case are in very nice condition. They are tenite.

K will post pics of them in a separate post...thanks...Doug

AC powered clocks always seem to be noisy after starting them up after a long rest.
