I want to thank everyone for their efforts posting in to help us with this movement. We read through Conover's material in his book ( in which Bruce is indeed mentioned ) and have communicated with him a couple of times to gets some clarification. But we still were (and are still) unsure on some points, hence Bruce posting here to tap into a larger talent pool. This movement is indeed challenging but we'll persevere with it until we get resolution. Rest assured we'll post in about our efforts and successful outcome.
Now a word of explanation to JTD if he's still reading here, regarding my comments on the age of this clock which he might find of interest. The reason I felt the age wasn't important was due to the following; We happened to have 2 of these Becker clocks in the shop at the same time, this one and another that were identical movements. The serial number of this clock is well under 4,000 which, according to some information we had, made it one of the earliest of this type. The second Becker had a serial number that was well over 2,000,000, and according to information we had, made that clock one of last of this type. The movements to our eyes were absolutely identical. From that, I concluded the age of this movement in this case didn't matter, since from the beginning of production till the end of production of this movement, they were all the same with no change at all. Now as to when actual production of this movement started I leave that to students of Gustav Becker. Right or wrong, I hope that in some small way, you can see why I didn't want to focus on when it was made.
To JTD, tracerjack, J.A.Olson and others, Bruce and I are grateful to you all for taking the time to post in and assist us in our endeavors. If anyone else has information they feel would be helpful, please join in here.
