I have cleaned and reassembled the movement, the first one of this manufacture I have seen. My problem is synchronizing the lift levers for the bellows with the lift lever for the hammer. When the movement stops, the short lever is partially raised so the bellow does not drop as it should. How do I synchronize the movement so it works properly. Thanks, Rod.

For the record, GM angem is not a make of clock or a type of clock.

GM angem is an abbreviation for Gebrauchsmuster Angemeldet, which is a German utility-model patent that has been applied for.

Use of the "GM" abbreviation (for Gebrauchsmuster ) is typically post WWII.

Regards.

What I need know is how the movement is to be assembled so that the cam, the pin wheel, and the count lever all line up so that the 2 levers and the strike lever are synchronized. The movement is the same as others which are shown online. Thanks, Rod.

What brand of movement is it? Herr? Schatz? Regula, and if so, what model? Baduf? Schneider? Euramca? Rombach and Haas? Hekas? Trenkle Uhren? Other? We need to know this so we can help you.

It is a G.M. Angem 1 day cuckoo clock movement. Rod.

Rod,
I don't think anyone here can help you without a photo of what you have there, along with a close-up photo of the problem area.

Usually the lift cam is friction fit and can be moved without taking the movement apart again. It sounds like yours just needs to be nudged forward a little. Newer movements have a screw on the cam that can be loosened to allow it to turn.

I did a Hubert Herr from the 50s and the cam didn’t seem to be friction fit. It wasn’t fun.

Rod,

There is no such thing as a G.M. Angem movement.

See my post, above.

You will need to provide pictures.

Regards.
1) On the back plate of the movement is "G.M. Angem"
2) On the Forum sites are MANY pictures of these movements.
3) Other folks have asked questions/made suggestions re these movements. So there seems to be much info about these clocks.
4) I just need to hear from someone familiar with these clocks to assist me.

Thanks, Rod.

It is not. See post #2. G.M. Angem. is not a make, as was clearly explained by new2clocks in his post.

Unless we see a photo of the movement no one can properly help. Otherwise you are just saying 'this is a movement by patent pending'.

Rod,

Are you unable to post photos? My crystal ball is still in the shop ... :)

With no real conversation, your thread will go dead pretty soon.

Hi Willie, I noticed your threads as you assisted other folks with these G.M. Angem movements. (So there are G.M. Angem movements). You have offered replies to their asks. All I need is to figure out a way to synchronize the lever movements when assembling the movement so the levers drop properly when assembled. You had pictures of these movements. If I am wasting your time, you do not need to reply. Thanks, Rod.

Don't get riled, Rod. Folks want to help you, but we're shooting in the dark. Pictures can be added to your posts by using the "Attach files" box in the lower left corner of the posting box ;)

I opened the movement and rotated the cam wheel a tiny bit, reassembled the movement and bingo, the clock is working well. Thanks, Rod.

You never have too many clocks :D
