    Era identification Sessions Beehive

    Korean Ansonia Clone?

The 4th hole in the upper left corner was marked but never used as you could not get access to install a screw. The movement was mounted as high as possible but the pendulum would touch the...

    Korean Ansonia Clone?

    That was my assumption also. Cousin told me he thought it was a Korean copy of a Japanese copy of an early American clock.

    Bushing Selection Assistance Needed

    Taking the next step for adding bushings and need some assistance. I ordered KWM bushing assortment #1 based on typical pivot sizes for American clocks and reamers 1.8mm & 2.7mm. What I now noticed is the plates have bushings with an OD of about 3.85mm. It appears I would have no problem...

    Success, the J hook needed to be bent so it contacted the release pin on the right side rather than contacting at the bottom of the sequence. Thanks for the suggestions.
