I can convert any "B-3" Telechron rotor into a 60 RPM rotor using a rotor from my stock.
I can use an old "B-3" Telechron rotor and switch it to a 60 RPM and transfer the shaft from your old rotor to the newly refurbished rotor. These rotor are made with nickel shells and copper plates, which should last about 3 to 5 times longer than the fiber plates in the aluminum rotors. All external dimensions are identical. All aluminum "B" rotors are replacement rotors. Meaning that they were manufactured after your clock was made in order to save production costs on replacements. This would cost $300.00 per unit plus $15.00 priority mail (Canada is $40.00) because I'd have to cut an old rotor open and clean it up and then switch the gears and then cut your old rotor open in order to transfer your output shaft over to the former 1 RPM rotor. My turnaround is 6 to 8 weeks for motor/rotor service and 4 to 6 months if the clock is sent with the motor/rotor. Expedited service take about 2 weeks for motor/rotor service, one month if the clock is sent with motor/rotor. Expedited service adds $100.00. These would still be stamped with the original information and I would hand scribe that it is now a 60 RPM rotor and should be stored with some type of explanation, so that any future person would not assume these were 1 RPM rotors.
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.
