    Thank you for the reply. I take it that these would be either Cup-Bearing or Vee-Bearing jewels then? Cheers

    Help Replacement jewels for swinger clocks

    Does anyone know where to get replacement jeweled bars for the Japanese (Linden) swinger clocks? These have a different center to center measurement for the pins than the German (Junghans) small version swingers. Or, how about, just the replacement jewels? Thanks

    Daniel Pratt Gallery Clock

    Evening...I have received this clock - without a pendulum bob. Would anyone have a similar clock that they could post a photo of so I can get an approximate (or actual) replacement? I am assuming that when I take this apart to clean, I will not find another maker's mark on the movement, so if...

    French Clock ID, Alternative substance under dial?

    Thank you both for such a quick response.. The clock gear repair would seem to resolve an issue with the cast brass face missing the structure to tie in the porcelain numerals. Is there a reason the plaster of paris would have become uniformly dark and also stain the subdial? It is very...

    French Clock ID, Alternative substance under dial?

    Attached are photos of a clock I am working on. The movement is in good shape, and the pendulum has the same numbers as the movement, and the wood case only have holes associated with mounting this movement. I believe, given the "Made in France" it is post 1891 fabrication for import into the...

    Need Clock ID and Pendulum Help

    Thank you all for your input. I will endeavor to lower the mounting point of the pendulum so the spring is basically flexing at the the CP of the pallet, butI think this will make the loop on the pendulum fall below the current length of the crutch wire. I do not see any patches on the wood...

    Need Clock ID and Pendulum Help

    Thank you for this information. By chance, do you know if there is some standard relationship between the height of the pendulum mount vs the center point of the escapement pallet arbor (or escape wheel)? Attaching a detail of the back of the bob, showing attachments which might help with ID...

    Need Clock ID and Pendulum Help

    Thanks for the quick reply. The movement came with the pendulum and hands, no dial or case, whereby I could hopefully reduce placement. The media seems to shorten the images to an almost square format, which cropped off the pendulum attachment point in the photo, which is why I attached a...

    Need Clock ID and Pendulum Help

    I have uploaded the files to MEDIA. On the MB, when I attach them from the MEDIA, they come in square. The original files show the pendulum connection in the overall view.

    Need Clock ID and Pendulum Help

    Need some help......I recently acquired a time only clock, which I think is asian in origin (no marks or ID's that I can see). Does anyone have a clue as to the ID? Also the pendulum appears to mount separately, which is the first I have seen. The effective pendulum length is 24". I realize...

    Winding Arbor Taper

    Thanks... I have been working on older clocks, which usually do have a taper. I wondered if these were standardized in any way. Many thanks
