    Default Stromberg self-winding clcok


    I am posting this for a friend who would like the 2 parts identified as indicated by the arrows. Plus any other advice I can pass along to him.

    Is that slot at the bottom near the pendulum bob? If so it might be for a screw into the wall to secure the bottom of the clock.

    It could be. It was sent as one photo. I don't know how far down the slot is on the right part of the photo .

    The top part you are pointing at looks like nothing that is on my Stromberg. It should have a contact that is worked by a cam behind the second bit to give a once a minute pulse to wind it and advance slaves.

    The top part looks like it would be for seconds impulses. It is nothing like either of my Strombergs. Mine also have the cam behind the seconds bit. The brass plate with the slot is for the bottom mounting screw.

    Thanks Harold. This is not my clock and I cannot see it in person, unfortunately. Could it be a method for adjusting the dead-beat escapement (you can correct me if it is not a DB escapement)?


    And the other arrow, slot for stabilizing screw?

    It looks to me like a contact activator similar to what one might find on an IBM master clock, for 2 second contacts. Yes, it is a deadbeat escapement. Does look like the slot for an anchoring screw.

    To slow or speed up the clock?

    No, to advance slave clocks at a fast rate of an impulse every two seconds.
