Clockworks Clock Supply Origin

Clockworks Clock Supply Origin

Clockworks Clock Supply Origin started out as Nepaug Clockworks in the mid 1940’s by Robert Tonkin from a section called Nepaug in New Hartford, CT. He was doing his clock repair out of his house in Nepaug and then also a Jewelers that was across from the old Seth Thomas factory in Thomaston, CT.

In 1991 his nephew (me) James Stoudenmire took an interest in what he was doing and started to follow suite, joining NAWCC in 1994 and was in full swing with clocks. With his experience and knowledge backing up the clock ventures, I learned everything I could about clock repair and the clock industry. I took up a clock repair internship at Goldsmith Jewelers, owned by Ludwig Goldsmith in Wilbraham, MA. There I would work for free learning about more about clocks and repairing them. We would go to all the NAWCC shows that happened within a about 200 miles of us. At the shows we would watch the experts explain various details about special clocks and how to re pivot and all this. I would meet other clockmakers and get there opinions on certain problem units and so forth.

Then came the internet in 1995, and Ebay to soon follow. I had a lot of clock parts and watch parts by then from all the places I been. I would buy up things here and there and had a good stock pile of things clock related that I really did not need.  I started selling here and there on Ebay with the user name of clockworks. It stuck and we got pretty busy with it. I would buy up retired clockmakers parts and supplies and keep selling them online. So the next step was to get a website. I was stuck with theclockman.com because clockworks.com was taken, but finally in 1998, I found out who owned the name and I was able to buy it from him. Now, here we are, clockworks.com! After some time there were more people involved with both the clockworks website and the clock repair aspect, and now here we are, over 20 years later with that same Clockworks.com

These days we have a full stack clock repair center, industrial clock cleaning machines, several lathe setups, both Bergeron and KWM bushing setups, Gear cutters and a mountain of old clock movements separated by maker. At the same time we have the retail side of offering everything from moon gears to quartz clock hands and mainsprings to full blown tubular bell clock kits. We stock all the German made units and also the more economical India made units and battery operated.

  • If we need a part, we go to the next section of the building and get it, from either our retail supply or our antique supply.
  • If we need to cut a gear or pivot something, we go to another room and do it.

When someone calls and has a clock issue, if we can't solve their issue, it's most likely not solvable.

Regula Cuckoo Movement Identification

Regula Cuckoo Movement Identification

Regula Cuckoo Movement Identification is done with these steps. To see if your time / cuckoo movement is Regula, please check the following.

    1. If your clock movement has two weights on the movement itself, your in the right section. You may have three weights, but the movement itself only carries two of them, and if you have another weight that is only on the music box, your in the right section.
    1. Next see if your cuckoo movement says 25 or 34 on it above the spiked wheel that makes the bellows go up and down, above this wheel and to the right some. It may have more numbers or letters after the 25 or 34 but don't pay attention to anything but the 25 or 34. If you have 25 or 34 on the back, your in the right section.
    1. Now you know the clock movement is made by the Regula company of Germany.
    1. The pendulum drop is measured from the top of the movement and down to the center of the pendulum leaf where the clock used to keep approximate time.
