Electrical Horology Group, The Synchronome Master Clock: Adjustments and Setting to Work, This illustrated document, by Arthur Mitchell, is one of 94 Technical Papers so far published by the AHS’s Electrical Horology Group, one of its three specialist groups. EHG members have full digital access to all Technical Papers. Synchronome Master Clock for Power Stations The clever design of these models ensures that the disturbance to the pendulum is kept to an absolute minimum when making the mercury switch tilt . The Microset timer is a very good tool for spot on adjustment, and allows you to get master clocks working to an accuracy that can never be achieved by just listening to the time pips on the radio! Original Synchronome Literature and Instructions. Synchronome Master Clock Set Up Synchronome There is an active group on Frank Hope-Jones There are several others, just use the search engine of choice. The definitive work on Synchronomes is "Synchronome, Masters of Electrical Timekeeping" by the sadly now departed Robert H A Miles.
Synchronome Master Clock The effect on the timekeeping of opening and closing the door. This will only apply to a good quality precision timepiece or clock, that . Synchronome Slave Unit. This is the operating mechanism from a slave clock manufactured by Synchronome. Its principle of operation is basically the same as that of a Gent unit: see here. The main differences in design are that the Synchronome is easier to adjust as the backstops are all screws. I think I'm intrigued by the concept of a relatively quiet master clock. Really I should clear my to-do list and make an effort to finish the 2 gravity-escapement regulators I've been promising my children! I've set up the Synchronome and slave in my workshop and will try to change to the 9V/resistor set-up I've described sometime this weekend. Synchronome The floorstanding oak case with glazed sides and hinged door and sliding doors to the base revealing small storage space for the cloth covered battery, fitted with a silvered Synchronome slave dial, the movement mounted to a painted cast iron plate with separate brass suspension over the two wheel movement with deadbeat escapement driven by a weighted arm re-cocked every thirty.
I recently purchased an old school clock from a show but didn't realize it is suppose to be hooked up with a master clock to run properly. When plugged in the clock works but there is no way to adjust the time on it. There is a single extra wire which I am under the impression is to go to the Master clock to adjust the time. Other than those, the build went well, it takes a fair amount of hand adjustment to set the clock up to allow it to run easily, as the adjustment of the various parts to work together is critical. I used the CES backplate and Hope-Jones book "Electric Clocks and How To Make Them" to verify the magazine dimensions. THE SYNCHRONOME MASTER CLOCK FOR OPERATING HALF MINUTE IMPULSE DIALS ONLY The Master Clock is fitted in a polished hardwood case, 50 inches long, 10 ’/f’ wide and 6 inches deep; it is fitted with a 7” diameter half minute impulse dial having minute and hour hands. The pendulum movement consists of a substantial baseplate on which the pendulum. EHG Technical Papers. The Electrical Horology Group of the AHS has published a number of technical papers over the years, covering a wide range of electrical horology topics. These papers are available to members of the society on request only. The complete list of such papers shown below indicates the depth and breadth of information available to members.
