There are quite a few solutions to the problem of securing a cuckoo clock movement in a test stand.

I was working on a chalet cuckoo with platform dancers as well as porch dancers, music and a bell ringer. The Regula 34 had so many levers and rods sticking out so many places that none of my usual mounts would work.

So I cut up a thin board to mount the Regula 34 onto with cutouts and sufficient wood to mount it in a typical two bar aluminum test stand. Even though the wood was thin to fit into the cross bar slots in the mount, it was more than sufficient to handle the three 1500 gram weights.

I used to his temporarily but I can’t engage the strike side this way. I was thinking of just hanging the metal hanger straps with the holes every quarter inch from a board in the ceiling. I took this apart, seemed unusable by the seller, working great for 48 hours.
