    Bent escape wheel teeth

    On closer inspection do see some signs of previous holes that look like they were filled.

    Bent escape wheel teeth

    The case appears to be unmolested other than a repaired crack across the very top. Only 4 mounting holes and the movement plate pins look to be square cut. Even the springs look to be old steel.

    Bent escape wheel teeth

    Thanks Glen. I do have such a set of pliers and have straightened many a tooth with them. Even some chipped teeth I have been able to draw out and make usable again. The point with this one is that the EW rotation is clockwise which makes the rolled over tip hit on the pallets. Opposite of what...

    Bent escape wheel teeth

    Picked up a supposedly E.N. Welch Gingerbread clock for 30 bucks just to play a round with. Opened it up and found a generic no name movement with this escape wheel. These teeth seem to be rolled over in the opposite direction than I would expect. Bent tips are hitting on the pallets and the...

    Silas Hoadley count wheel drive pinion

    I recently acquired a Silas Hoadley tall case from the early 1900's I believe. Unfortunately when I got it home I discovered that the count wheel drive pinion was missing. It looks like I will have to make one but was wondering about the number of teeth? It also seem that the original would have...

    Silas Hoadley Wood Movement Pinion

    I'm working on mocking up a new wheel using 3/4 " dowel rod that seems to be the correct od. I will trace the teeth off of the count wheel. If this works I will then maybe move to a harder wood. Just thought it would have helped to have a photo of one to start with. Haven't found any close up...

    Silas Hoadley Wood Movement Pinion

    I recently picked up this Silas Hoadley tall clock for $500 which I thought was a good deal till I discovered that the count wheel drive pinion was missing. I have a wood carver willing to make a new one and was wondering if anyone here could send me or post a pattern with some dimensions...

    Loosen hand nut?

    It looks to me like the brass "nut" is actually the end of the hour canon and the washer is a lock washer holding the hands in place. Similar to some French Morbier movements. Try rotating the washer 90 degrees and everything should come apart.

    My Latest Find. "Southern Calendar Fashion Clock"

    Yes both springs wind counter clockwise and the large brass bell looks to be at least 4 inches in diameter. All indicators point to it being a number 3 and a sure keeper. Is the dial house still in business? Thinking about sending the dials out seeing as how the upper one is a paper replacement.
