More interested in its history
The bible would indicate backplate number 1667 Kern and Link...
after feeling positive about my first 400 day clock rebuild - see my earlier post - I was reading some other posts and saw a mention of mainspring failure indicated by a bulge in the mainspring barrel

OK guys - I know I'm going to kick myself when I do get an answer, but I am reading these NAWCC boards with my Sessions Belfast and a 1930 Kienzle Westminster movements on my desk and every time they chime what I can only describe as paddles or flaps whiz around on spindles in the upper part of...
