Telechron "C" Tower Clock Rotors
My business is rebuilding your original rotor. The type "C" is the largest rotor which generally turns at the rate of 1 R.P.M. These are usually used in tower and street clocks. These are extremely rare. An original rebuilt rotor cost $650.00 plus $15.00 priority mail (Canada is $40.00) and has a 2-year warranty, which brings your total cost to $665.00. I must have the old rotor. My turn time is around 8 to 10 months because I do not have a ready stock and your specific rotor will have to be rebuilt. I have some in stock but most times I'd need your original, if you don't have an original then add $300.00 for using one from my stock. "C" rotors usually have two wheels that must be sent out to be made. It is extremely important that you have the proper coil. These rotors are either 6 or 12 watts. The # 37 coil is 6 watts and there may be others. The point is that a "C" rotor requires 6 watts or two fields and coils for 12 watts in order to reach maximum torque. The down side is that I do NOT carry the 6 watt coil. You may get by with a 4 watt coil or doubled to 8 watts but I cannot guarantee that. I have 4 watt coils in stock.
One thing you can do before you send in the motor is to 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 or the posts where the wires connect and see if you get a reading. Just about any reading is a good one. But if you get no reading what-so-ever then the motor's coil is dead and we could try a 4-watt coil and that adds $100.00.
I'll not ship the rotor/motor 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 two months or so after I receive payment and thanks !
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.
