    Hallo,sir I’m looking for a coil for my Goblin clock.The thread is somewhere disconnected and rewiring is quite a problem. It’s for a s 41 goblin A Do you know someone who is in possession of goblin parts?

    There is no easy answer. I wish there was. The only practical solution, which maintains originality, is to cannibalise another clock with the same type of movement. I have done this on several occasions, but not with a Goblin clock. An alternative solution is to rewind the coil with thicker wire and run the clock through a transformer. I have seen this service offered on line, but would not have it done to my clocks.

    Hello, I have recently obtained a Goblin model 394 that is in need of a second hand. Would you know where I might obtain one, or a clock parts supplier that would have one that would fit?
