|This is the impression strip installed.|
|Not a very good image splice. I hope you ' get the picture'|
|Z rod sticking in UP. The lever that rotates to move the shuttle stops at whichever key presses its rod up.|
|Notice the ferrule on the Z stays down.|
|Normal operation. The spring goes up with the rod to provide return tension. Third one to the right is Z. It will eventually drift into the up position even if the key is not pressed. Looks like #4 is drifing up, but it is fine.|
|A better macro of the previous image. Sorry for the reversal.|

I hope the Ebayer does not mind a referral from my blog.
The clock is one of those projects where I should have done some before and after photos as it was quite dull and dirty looking before I decided to clean it and get it running for the first time since moving to Florida. It sat on our book case as a decoration as I did not want to start the chimes. This is a reproduction of a real chime clock. It does not have a silence key to silence the chimes. Once the chime spring winds down it will not chime. I've not decided to keep it or offer it to a Typospherian who likes clocks.
