• Upcoming updates
    Over the next couple of weeks we will be performing software updates on the forum. These will be completed in small steps as we upgrade individual software addons. You might occasionally see a maintenance message that will last a few minutes at most.

    If we anticipate an update will take more than a few minutes, we'll put up a notice with estimated time.

    Thank you!

    I would like information regarding this unmarked weight driven time only movement

    Mr. Thornberry, I thought that was for those who made the movements also. I can and have made three 60 BPM movements but I get more pleasure from making the cases. I will try posting some pictures on clock construction if you think it is appropriate.

    I would like information regarding this unmarked weight driven time only movement

    After reading all the posts in this thread, I am convinced that there should be a category for those of us that like to make new cases for orphan movements. And TAT, when you get the tooth/pinion count completed, the 72 might be the BPM. If it turns out that 72 is the BPM the pendulum length...

    Source for time only movements

    Again, thanks to all. I was able to get Marks web site and see pictures of his movements. Unfortunately, none are suitable to my needs. I have enough old movements to make 5 more clock cases.

    Source for time only movements

    Mr. Thornberry, when I type Mark Butterworth in the "find member" space the PC tells me to type a real person, At the bottom of the notable members page I can type in the name---Mark Butterworth, and it gets me nothing useful. I know he is out there but I do not know where.

    Source for time only movements

    Help again. I have, over the past several years, tried to contact Butterworth Clocks and I have NEVER been able to contact them. I am not sure they are real.

    Source for time only movements

    I have been depending on the auction sites for my weight driven time only clock movements that I like to build cases for, but, they have become quite expensive. Does any one know of a source for new 80 beat, weight driven, time only movements?

    OG surprise

    I was really surprised to find this behind the dial of a old OG clock. I should have noticed there were no pulleys on the top. Is this a bit unusual?

    Cuckoo music box governor

    Good Morning Mark, Totally agree about the governors. I dread getting a 1 day musical cuckoo with the MB on the top. I have started quoting a price that includes a new MB.

    Klokwiz, it would have been a crank. Size, I do not know. I have several REPO's and they use a 7 I thin k. Any weight driven clock would require a crank.
