    loud strike train + squeaky escape wheel

    I am soon going to be building a clock and I bought a movement for it. It is a cheap replica 8 day movement. The quality isn't that of a German movement by any means whatsoever.

    Custom-made Arbor?

    The strike arbor (the part the hammer connects to, not the strike train winding arbor) on one of my movements broke in half while I was re-inserting the strike hammer rod. The arbor is 1 1/16 inches long and I can't find anywhere that sells a replacement that is that size. Do I need a custom...

    German Need more info about Badische #11 Movement

    I recently purchased a nice working Badische #11 Movement. Has anyone heard of this movement number? I can't find anything on the internet. I believe it is a 30 hour movement but I have only run it for a few hours so I'm not sure. It is also really small, about 3 inches wide and 4 inches tall...

    Solved Badische Clock Movement Keeps Stopping

    I recently purchased a nice little Badische #11 clock movement in good working condition. It runs flawlessly for a little bit and then gradually stops, even when I have it fully wound.
