What are the prices of the
clocks? I am always buying / selling / trading these clocks so
email me for pricing and availability.
What are the electrical
requirements All of my clocks are made for the USA. They use 120V 60hz
electricity. They do not use batteries. If you attempt to use a converter
for 220V it will not keep time because most of the converters operate at
- I sent you a letter via snail mail
but never got a reply. Sorry folks, but I just
don't have the time to break out pen and paper. If you want to contact me
you will have to use email or have someone send email on your behalf.
- How many balls does the clock use?
The bottom rail uses 1 large silver ball. The
middle rail uses a medium black ball. The top rail uses a small black ball.
30 of the regular silver balls are needed for the feed rail.
- Do you sell replacement motors for
the ball clocks and domino clocks? I will sell
a replacement motor only if you have your old one to trade in. If you have
already taken the motor apart, I may not honor a trade.
- What is your warranty on your
clocks and motors? The clocks and parts are
sold as-is. Sales are final. Restoring the clocks is a hobby of mine. This
is not Walmart. These machines were quirky even back when they were new. I
cannot make a warranty on a novelty clock that is nearly 30 years old. If
there is an issue I will always try to assist.
- Do you have parts for the Time
Machine? I do not have parts for the Time
Machines other than the ball bearings. I do not know of any source to
replace the Time Machine motors. If you have found one, please let me know.
- Do you ship clocks and parts
internationally? I will ship the clocks and/or
parts to any country. I typically use U.S Postal Airmail. If you want
another carrier, just let me know.
- What is the turnaround time for a
motor repair? Typically I service the motors
the same day I get them and ship them the following day.
- I haven't gotten a reply to my
email. Why not? I answer every email I get from
this site, usually within a couple of days. I get tons of spam and sometimes
a legitimate email can fall through the cracks. If you haven't gotten a
reply after a few days, you should email me again.
- I want to build my own clock from
scratch. Do you have any plans or blueprints?
Sorry I don't have any documentation on how to make your own clock.
