• Upcoming updates
    Over the next couple of weeks we will be performing software updates on the forum. These will be completed in small steps as we upgrade individual software addons. You might occasionally see a maintenance message that will last a few minutes at most.

    If we anticipate an update will take more than a few minutes, we'll put up a notice with estimated time.

    Thank you!

    Inlayed Wooden Works Tall Clock Info?

    Hi CJ, It certainly looks unusual. The movement looks to be a typical Black Forest one. The case has maybe a German look in style. My feeling is that maybe the case was home-made, with some mouldings and finials added, but it's just a feeling.... Hopefully someone will have seen one like this

    I have need of original tin can weights (about 14 lbs. each) Do you know of anyone who has any for sale or of anyone reproducing them? I would settle for good repros, but certainly would prefer originals.

    Tall clock with steel works

    Hi K.Watters- A picture would help identify your clock. And I'm assuming you mean steel plates with brass inserts for pivots (bushings) instead of brass inserts for the pinions. Brass pinions with steel plates really would be unusual! Looking forward to a picture, David.
