    The photos below show what I had to start with, and what will go back in the church.

    Nice. They didn't miss anything salvaging, apparently.

    My only photo is of the stuff in the box they stored the parts in.

    The auto rewind is done and installed, and works a treat. The clock ran all weekend--unsupervised--the rewind worked flawlessly, the clock is keeping time, and all it needs now is some housekeeping to clean it up and get it ready for delivery. Just as a by the way, the auto rewind cost less than $400.00! It will be delivered to the church in Ipswich at the end of September.

    It runs well, but the oddball escape wheel has teeth that were not necessarily evenly spaced axially around the rim of the wheel The beat count (BPH) varies from a low of 2915 to a high of 2922.
