    Mora Clock Alarm Crown Wheel

    I know there is a click on the winding arbor and this crown wheel controls the alarm hammer. It just seems strange the hammer essentially floats without something to hold it in a rest position.

    Mora Clock Movement Time and Alarm

    Thank you so much for the information, It is very enlightening. You said that the movement is more interesting than a Mora. Why? Also, I've attached two photos of cases I am considering to build. Can you give me an opinion of which would be most correct? Thanks. Mick

    Mora Clock Case

    Thanks for the info. I was able to connect with some people in the UK who gave me detailed dimensions of Mora cases they have. You are right about the pine.

    Mora Clock Case

    I'm about to build a clock case for a Mora movement I'm going to acquire. Were all the cases painted? Also, what wood was commonly used?

    Movement maker ID.

    I am looking at a lantern clock with two hands and a makers mark of J.J.E England inside a crossed out wheel. The mark is on the rear plate. The number 1579 is below it. Can anyone ID the maker and maybe the age of it. Thanks.

    First Fusee Movement

    Well, I've finished cleaning and brushing the fusee movement and will put it on to test soon. I am going to build a case for it modeled from clocks with similar movements I've seen on Ebay and am looking for sources for parts. Particularly the round glass with the metal bezel and hinge. Thanks.

    Telechron Rotor Identification

    Thanks for the info. Now, another issue. The larger black plastic wheels are slipping on the arbors. The alcohol I used to clean them must have dissolved whatever adhesive held them fast. Or, are they just a friction fit? Any ideas to stop the slippage? Thanks.

    Telechron Rotor Identification

    I finished cleaning, polishing and burnishing etc. Now it is time to put it back together. I ran into a problem. What supports the rotor/pinion shaft so that the pinion rides at the right height to engage the first wheel? I had taken two dozen pictures but apparently not enough. Seems like I'm...

    Telechron Rotor Identification

    Thanks again for all the info. Another question. The motor is apart and all the wheels look good. When I took it out of the case there was a part the came out of the very bottom with a triangular tab that goes into the well where the rotors are. Photos are attached. Since it is asymmetrical, is...

    Telechron Rotor Identification

    Thanks for the info. Another question.... it looks like the top, where the output shaft exits, is soldered to the main body of the rotor. I was going to use an alcohol lamp to remove the top. Sound like a good way to open it?
