Hi, from New Zealand. I bought this old Banjo clock and after rebushing some pivot holes it works well. My question is ... how did this movement originally attach to the backboard. Currently it is held by short slot head machine screws and hex nuts at the bottom left and top right of the backplate. I have searched past Forum posts but cannot find a photo that gives a clear answer...some photos seem to show a long rod with a slotted head level with the front plate...other pics show shadowy screw (machine or wood screws?) images. Any comment or photo that can help me instal the historically correct type of fixture will be very welcome. And for interest...while early American clocks are very uncommon in NZ...later ones from the 1850s quite often encountered. This one arrived in NZ from an estate in the US long ago and was stored by the estate beneficiary under a bed for many years. It is better than expected clock purchase from an online auction. Thank you.
