    Cast iron backplate identity

    This movement is not marked. Can anyone tell me who made it? It was in a "OG" case, but the case in not fitted for weights-no pulleys or cutouts in the vertical boards for the cords. The dial is silk-screened floral reverse glass. So, the unmarked case was a left-over Ogee, and fitted with a...

    Clock parts wanted Obsolete older posts II

    Re: Clock Parts Wanted I'm in contact with Phil Johansen-Crafts winner several times for unusual hand made clocks. Anyway, he has agreed to make me a new sleeve and install it. I was already in contact with David and he did now offer a salvage part.

    Jura movement

    I'm about to overhaul a Jura movement. The rear plate is split in three parts and I'm wondering if there is any special handling required. Do I keep the plate fully assembled or separated in three pieces. What about re-assembly? Does it require special handling>

    One of the hazards in moving clocks like this is that laying clocks cown and shaking in travel dislocates some levers. get the dial off and examine the levers. The minute hand bushing is also a good fix to orient th ehand to the chime drops

    Schonbergeer, William

    Thanks for that info. In my case, the movement is a well made "Vienna" style, 2 wt, half-hour strike. The mvt is unmarked except for a number. I got it from Larry Zeller, Rouge River, OR a number of years ago. Its the dial that came with it that was marked with the William S. Thus prompting...
