    Looking for a clock, a clock label photo, or any additional information on a clock by Lot Goodspeed, Middleton, Conn.

    Thank you, Jim for posting that I am indeed looking for a Lot Goodspeed clock. Middletown (Ct.) was so close to where I was born/raised played as a child and drove through a few times a day. Thank you, EW for your great detective work. I have looked at your references, greatly appreciated. I do...

    Seth Thomas Transitional Clock Movement?

    I concur with James. IMO the movement in the box is a 1.124 by T.M. Roberts with the ring on the count wheel bridge. I also believe Seth only used Seth movements.

    Alfred Lowrey wood works ogee clock

    Thank you, Robert. Your tablet is much prettier. I do agree with you about my tablet. It does look hand painted, on very old glass that does not appear to have been removed to do so. Thanks for sharing.

    Alfred Lowrey wood works ogee clock

    I do hope you show us that clock. I would really like to see it and the label. We all learn by our mistakes, as long as we make them reversible that is okay. I would love to help you clean out that "closet" !!

    Alfred Lowrey wood works ogee clock

    Another clock story I think interesting. A widow had been cleaning out her garage and found this clock belonging to her late husband. She brought it to an old clock repairman friend of mine who had no interest in wood works clocks. He then called me with an unusual request "come over right now...

    Don Bruno Out of Business??

    I am an "old" friend of both George (RIP) and his son Don. I have been in contact with Don recently and he is well, healthy and doing fine. Don retired in June 2020. He did have some gears and parts left, but not much. Therefore, I am very pleased that Jon Lester has provided his contact...

    Jerome and Darrow "thin movement" questions ?

    Thank you all for such an educational and informational thread. Jim, yes I am a member of cog counters. I did a facebook post on November 17, 2020, showing my Riley Whiting tall case clock. I think your ideas about the various clockmakers buying parts from other vendors is correct and sensible...

    Jerome and Darrow "thin movement" questions ?

    Thank you all for the prompt response to my inquiry. With the mentality here, "one is good, two are better or at least twice as good". I have two Jerome and Darrow "thin movement" clocks, that I am finally getting around to working on. Both arrived without weights. I have re-bushed both...

    Jerome and Darrow "thin movement" questions ?

    I enjoy running my wood works clocks. I have just completed (hopefully) the repairs to a Jerome & Darrow "thin movement". It had been "repaired" by some well meaning soul in the past, and that venture made it impossible to run. So, with the rework behind me I would like to know if anyone has/is...

    Boardman & Wells timing

    Welcome Wenjay to the NAWCC forum. Sooth provided an excellent reply as always. I would like to offer two other references that I found to be very helpful. One explanation was written by R. Croswell in a Dec.5, 2015 post reply #39 in response to Bruce Linde question on Nov.22, 2015. The post...

    Wood Works Converted to Brass

    Good morning all. Well Steamer you have a very nice case. The stenciling is beautiful on the entire case. I will only speculate on the rest of the clock. Without a label this is only my opinions. I do not think the tablet is original to the clock, but I think there are others out there that...

    Groaner mvmt.: am I missing something?

    So sorry Jim for stepping on your toes. We must have been operating on the same wave length at the same time. Well, at least we are both in agreement !!!

    Groaner mvmt.: am I missing something?

    Dear Burkhard and other interested members. Attached to the inside of the front plate there should have a wire that fits into a groove on the minute shaft. You should be able to see it and feel it looking from the bottom of the movement. I have included photos of the inside of the front plate...

    My First Terry Clock

    Duane and others. Thanks for the great photos. I admit to some contributions to the wall of shame, but this one really made me LOL. Saving grace for the movement it couldn't run nor strike !!! You do have some work to do. As I expected, previously mentioned wheels are upside down. Also the two...

    My First Terry Clock

    Whoops, so sorry Duane. Meant to mention it is a really nice clock. You sure started with a nice example. My first one was in a cardboard box much like the 1000 piece puzzle. But, I still have it and running everyday !!!

    My First Terry Clock

    Dear Duane and other interested members. I am back to looking at the movement and your arrows. Oh yeah, there is definitely a strike problem. I believe some of the strike side gears are in upside down. The pinion on the fly governor should be against the front plate and not up against the back...

    T (homas) E. Suggs & Co, South Carolina, 30 hr clock

    To John, Robbie and interested fellow members. John, WAHOO ! You have seen the light !!! Great job. I was politely trying to say you have worked harder then necessary, but with great success. I was trying to help set you up for your next movement with a little easier assembly method. However...

    T (homas) E. Suggs & Co, South Carolina, 30 hr clock

    Hi John. Your movement is the same as the one in my Dyer, Wadsworth, Georgia clock. It is a 1.514 Seth Thomas, with a 30 tooth escape, using an approximately 17 inch suspension rod. And yes the minute hand has to be indexed with drop wire, hour no. Can be moved to align after assembly. I use a...

    T (homas) E. Suggs & Co, South Carolina, 30 hr clock

    Hi John, I was most interested in what was your movement id. I also have a southern clock that is a Dyer, Wadsworth from Augusta, Georgia. It has a Seth Thomas 1.514 movement with both a square hour and minute pipe. I have many other clock movements that are similar (most Terry and Thomas types...
