Seth Thomas used "capsules", made by General Time, in some clocks, which I have a limited supply of used capsules. If you're reading this I still have some stock left. The capsules sell for $100.00 plus the usual $15.00 priority mailing (Canada is $40.00), which brings your total cost to $115.00 and has a 2-year warranty. These capsules are never rebuilt and therefore it is not necessary to send me the old rotor.  My turn time is around a week. If you want to send in the clock for rotor replacement, please be advised that shipping will jump from $15.00 to $100.00 with everything else staying the same. The increase covers return shipping and insurance and includes my labor charge of $50.00 for the replacement ($200.00 total). I'll not ship the rotor until I received payment, so in order to expedite the transaction please enclose your payment along with your order.  I ONLY accept money orders, certified checks, or company checks for payment but repeat customers may use personal checks.  Normally shipping takes place one week or so after I receive payment and thanks !
You might as well test your coil while your in the clock. So before you order the capsule, take a Multimeter or Volt/Ohm meter, these are less than $10.00 at any hardware store, and with no current on the motor, set the meter to Ohms and touch the two leads to the end of the wires and see if you get a reading. Just about any reading is a good one and zero would be perfect. But if you get no reading what-so-ever then the motor's coil is dead and you will need that as well. The coil is located inside the field.
Seth Thomas Field and Coil
I sell these field and coils as well for $100.00 each plus shipping, which is the usual $15.00 priority mailing (Canada is $40.00).
For return shipping I use USPS for all shipping. If you want to use another carrier then you will have to arrange everything for shipping, meaning I hand the box to the driver, get a receipt and nothing else.

I would like payment by money order, certified check, personal check, business check, or through Pay Pal or Square, which is the only way I take credit cards. I do prefer a check over Pay Pal or Square because Pay Pal and Square take 3%. I only take credit cards if you are in the USA or Canada. The 3% is added to the total bill if you use a credit card. With Pay Pal you can pay me directly using "friends and family" where you absorb all fees and I'm paid the full amount. There would be nothing added amount to the final fill if you absorb all fees. Here you log on to Pay Pal and send me the full amount of my bill, so there is no E-voice coming from me with this method and you will be charged all Pay Pal fees on top of my final bill. With either Pay Pal or Square, I will send an invoice to your E-mail address. Here you are dealing directly with either service and not me. You do have to be a member of Pay Pal in order to issue a payment but you may use Square without any membership or additional Square fees but the 3% will be added to your total bill as with Pay Pal. With Square, I can also take the credit card information which includes the number, expiration date and the last 3 or 4 #'s of the security code from the back of the card BUT that adds 3.5% to the final bill. I'd prefer to avoid this method but it is an option. All of the added fees are exactly what either service charges me for taking your credit card.
