  • Gamewell register

    I am mostly finished restoring this ca 1895 register, I have not connected it electrically which is about the only thing that would be left to do if I do it.

    Couple of "before" pictures, the mainspring was broken also.

      Hi; I have a gamewell device I'm trying to identify and see if anyone repairs them. It is the item at the alarm office that the dispatcher can manually set a box number and transmit it. (four digits) When I got it fifteen years ago, it functioned. After being in storage for a long time, it no longer works (spring broken?) I have pictures but can't figure out how to post them.
      If anyone can give me some help, my email is [email protected] Thanks!

        Spring breaking is very likely if all it was doing was sitting in storage working and now it doesn't, those old springs have a tendency to break without warning. I had one pretty much "explode" just cleaning the old oil and grit simply rinsing it after using a small brush with soap. The temperature change was enough, the spring literally shattered in dozens of segments.

        I could probably repair it easy enough, but I'm not a "Certified Gamewell" type career technician who does this 40 hours a week. I took apart, cleaned and re-assembled a very complex Horni mechanism and the Gamewell punch shown here, I don't see any problem repairing most any of these unless a vital part was completely broken, I don't fabricate or repair broken, bent wheels or gears as a clockmaker can.
