    Weight driven banjo question

    Hmm, 1.0 mm might be optimal size. Ron

    Weight driven banjo question

    Thanks, Andy. I appreciate the insights. I am looking forward to cleaning the case up and servicing the movement. Any cautions re. servicing the movement? Ron

    Weight driven banjo question

    Thanks Bruce. Very helpful. The dial is held on with three lugs. Here are some additional photos.

    Weight driven banjo question

    Took some photos today of the movement case details, weight, etc. The dial is 6 5/8 inches and appears to be enamel on a 4.8 oz metal dial. The weight is 7 lbs 2.5 ounces. There is a number 57 stamped on the bottom. It does not look like it ever had any side rails or a bottom piece, you are...

    Weight driven banjo question

    It all the photos I have at the moment. It is a weight-driven banjo clock in pretty rough shape but for $60, why not. Any clues as to the maker based on the photos? Appears to be missing the side arms and bottom base(?). Glass is broken, veneer issues, and so on.

    No Electricity and 1 Clock

    My Pequegnat Moncton 15 day time only. Keeps pretty good time for a spring-driven clock.

    Vote on next clock

    I'd get the 8-day ST and the style is nice. Some like winding a clock every day but I prefer once a week.

    Question about New Haven movement

    A spring-driven New Haven movement, dial, hands, etc. in a one-of hall clock case is a little odd but since I have time on my hands I decided to service the movement and refresh the case with a thorough cleaning, a top coat of Poly-Wipe, and polish the brass. I even kept the fake (empty cans)...

    Question about New Haven movement

    I removed the raised platform and could not see any evidence of a seat board ever being in this case. I think this is a one-of and not a New Haven factory clock. 72bpm, does that sound right? Ron

    Question about New Haven movement

    Yes, a seat board makes sense. There is a raised wood platform to accommodate the spring-driven movement. There are 4 screws holding the platform in place. In the next day or so, I will take that out to see if the clock once had a seat board. I only paid $75 for this clock, so, not a great loss...

    Question about New Haven movement

    I might be answering my own question but was there a weight-driven version of this particular movement? I found this in a hall clock. Evidently, someone replaced the movement with a spring-driven one as the chain and weights are still in it to simulate a weight-driven one. The ladder chains are...

    I notice there are only 2 hall clocks in this thread and both are the Vancouver. Can we see more? Ron

    The Future of Clock Collecting

    I enjoy working on clocks, I continue to collect them and I am not particularly worried about what will happen to them when I am gone. Life is too short Ron

    It has those trim pieces on the end. Did any version of the Swan have them?

    Thanks, Don. The carving does look strange. I wish I knew. Not my clock but I have passed the information on to the owner. Wish I had a copy of the "Pequegnat Story". Hard to find.

    Thanks Don. The side pieces threw me off. I imagine from the 1930s judging from the name on the dial just above the centre arbour. Ron

    This is a Pequegnat Napoleon hat-style clock and is similar to other mantel clocks. Does anyone know what model this is? Skip Kerr's site is down, unfortunately.
