    Blanket wrapped shipping MA to PA

    Hi all, I will be shipping an E. Howard Number 2 clock from Belmont, MA to Orbisonia, PA (about 450 miles) in the next month and was wondering if anyone had a suggestion for a blanket wrap mover. I had used Don Hill out of Pittsburgh, PA several years ago. Not sure if he's still doing east coast...

    E. Howard 70-24 project....Need a few measurements

    Cases are complete. We are using E. Howard gallery movements (which were used on original 70-24) These movements have to be modified by David Lindow to accept longer pendulum. We will be using E. Howard reproduction sticks and original E. Howard 4" bobs (1lb 9oz) Bottom glass will be wavy and...

    E. Howard 70-24 project....Need a few measurements

    Our 70-24's are progressing nicely. We used a 4" hinge for bezel. That door is massive and 3" hinge would never last over time.

    Converting an E. Howard 11 1/2 drop to a 28 1/4 inch drop

    Hi all, My partner and I are building 2 E. Howard 70-24 reproduction clocks. Rather than use an incorrect looking movement I would like to convert an existing 11 1/2 gallery movement to accommodate a 28 1/4 inch drop (used on 70-24). I assume this can be done someone like Mike Loebbaka or David...

    Waltham Banjo (Willard Style) case....a few questions

    Hi all, I bought this Waltham clock cheap because it had some interesting features I've never seen on a Waltham Banjo (or Willard Style) clock: 1. The base had a god awful gold paint on it. I stripped the gold paint and I am starting to think that the base was made to be gilded ? I could...

    I have to contact David Lindow They will be exact reproductions although we are only making 2 of them at this time. We would need to duplicate the 70-24 movement (see picture) which is quite a simple movement and I think David could custom make a few. We used him to make our 10 E. Howard...

We are now starting our 3rd project...the E...

    E Howard Slave Clock???

    I have many E. Howard slave clocks. The case does not look like E. Howard. The dial is a repaint so who knows if it was original E. Howard. Post a picture of the movement
