Hey Ya'll Just thought ya'll might like to see some pics of the clock I acquired about a year ago. I ran across the pics today and I will take some pics of how far I have taken it tonight. I believe it is from the late 16th century. It originally had a crown wheel escapement, possibly folio, but most likely a crown wheel with a long pendulum. In 1857 (date marked on the "new" pinwheel with the clockmakers name that made the repairs) it was updated to a pinwheel escapement for better accuracy. It came from a church in Nuremburg Germany most likely made by a local clockmaker or blacksmith for the town. It is a large clock with a chime main wheel diameter of 38 inches. Everyone that comes to our house loves this one in particular because it makes it very easy to see how a clock works. I have begun "restoring" a little, mainly got the clock functioning again and painted the wheels. I have yet to decided what color to paint the frame. I still have a lot of work to do on it. I do have a set of motion works that was probably an update as well. It came to me with a lot of rust but not surprising given it's age. The fly was froze up and it took a lot of patience to get it to turn loose. It has wedges holding the frame together, someone had added some extra support braces at some point as well. Enjoy and I will be posting more pics.
